The entire program of the UFC 267 event is spectacular, consisting of a total of 14 fights, six in the main and eight in the introductory program. Still, two are in the foreground for a reason, as these are UFC championship fights.
The real light heavyweight title and the temporary bantamweight title. It is these two fights that have found their place in those longer, more meaningful announcements, in the traditional "Countdown" Glover Teixeira told his story of the long road to becoming an American citizen, but also of how long it took him to become a UFC fighter.
And then came the series, the title fight against Jon Jones and the defeat and fall into a situation where many wrote him off. But already in his veteran years, he won a new opportunity and will try to become a world champion.
In this, he will try to stop a man at the peak of his career, Jan Blachowicz. The Pole has finally welcomed a fight in which he is the favorite and we will see how he will react to such a situation now. He has big victories behind him, he is simply burning with self-confidence and now he has a mission ahead of him to confirm that he is currently the best light heavyweight in the world.
The title fight was supposed to bring a big and long-awaited rematch of the bantamweight title fight between Peter Yan and Alyamain Sterling. But Sterling was injured once again, and Cory Sandhagen jumped into the fight against Yan, taking the opportunity that even TJ Dillashaw could not accept the fight.
A temporary belt has been introduced to spice things up for the UFC, but also to send a message to Sterling that he will not tolerate his delays for long. If Sterling does not return soon, he could become real, and both fighters have claimed to see the fight as a fight for a real champion.
Indeed, it is a pity for Sterling that things like this happen to him and that the injury came at the wrong time. However, Sterling will surely return as soon as possible and arrange a fight to show that he is still a top fighter, the only question is how much he will be ready and whether this "physical fitness" will affect his performances.
In any case, we will look forward to both these matches and Sterling's next, when we will have the opportunity to enjoy top performances.
It is certain that there will be no shortage of adrenaline and good moves that make this sport one of the best
