The event will feature the light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira,    Another thrilling event, UFC 267 is set to hit Fight Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, October 30. Where we will see champion John Balochis defending his title against the experienced and long-awaited Glover Taxira. Former champion Peter Yan, on the other hand, is co-host of the interim Bennett event against Corey Sandhagan. But the event will be another thrilling match between UFC welterweight weightlifter Jing Long and UFC Golden Star and the so-far unbeaten Khamzat Chemayev. Both legendary fighters are optimistic about their victory. First of all, let's talk about Li Jing Long's determination to taste the first defeat of Khumzat Chemayev. Jing Liang was last seen in action at UFC Fight Island 7. That happened in January of this year, in which the Chinese competitor saw Santiago Ponzinibeu's return spoiled. Argentina, having previously lost only three of their last 30 fights, was brutally knocked out by The Leach in the opening round. After earning a Knight Bonus performance in his last fight, as well as finishing # 11 in the welterweight rankings, Jing Liang will try to jump into the top 10 in his next tour. "Khazat is very impressive and everyone loves it," Lee said. "But I'm 100 percent confident." After beating him I can sit down with Dana White and have a cup of sugar tea, and then we can talk about the future. Chechnya, on the other hand, was thrilled overnight with another one-sided defeat after the locals of Chechnya demolished John Phillips in their octagon debut on Flight Island and faced Rice McKee just 10 days later. ۔ Chimayo then improved to 9-0 with a 17-second knockout by Gerald Mersharat. The 27-year-old now faces his highest-ranking opponent (18-6), a Chinese welterweight who defeated Santiago Ponzinbio in a single round at his recent Octagon last January. The Leach have won eight of their last 10 UFC titles, including seven knockouts and five post-fight bonuses. The question is, will Lee Long enjoy the defeat?
