The MMA Vivisection - UFC 267: Blachowicz vs. Teixeira picks, odds, & analysis

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back to break down this week’s UFC event in Abu Dhabi. With picks and odds for every fight on the card. From Jan Blachowicz vs. Glover Teixeira in the main event down to Tagir Ulanbekov vs. Allan Nascimento in the opening prelim.

The UFC may not have been bringing their best fights to the table for their recent Fight Night offerings, but that’s just because they’ve been saving it all for their big PPV level events. UFC 267 may be free on ESPN+, but it’s headlined by a rock solid light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira. In the co-main event Petr Yan takes on Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight title. Throw some Islam Makhachev vs. Dan Hooker in there and the return of Khamzat Chimaev and it should be a fantastic day of action for the UFC.

Standings for our last event, UFC Vegas 40: Zane & Connor both went 5/9. Overall standings: Zane - 387/625 & Connor - 378/625. There were no picks added into the standings for UFC Vegas 41, due to Zane’s absence for that pair of shows. *If Connor’s picks last week had counted, he went 7/14, excluding the Majority Draw. Dan Tom went 9/14.
