Jan Blachowicz Returns To Defend UFC Light Heavyweight Title At UFC 266

Dana White has confirmed to ESPN that Jan Blachowicz will make his return at UFC 266 on September 4th, to defend his UFC light heavyweight championship against #1 ranked light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira. 

Teixeira (32-7), is on an improbable five fight win streak. His latest win was a TKO victory over former title challenger Thiago Santos. At 41, a victory for Teixeira would make him the second oldest fighter to ever win a UFC championship.

Blachowicz (28-8), is back to defend his title for a second time after his last defense came against current UFC Middleweight champion and formerly undefeated Israel Adesanya. Blachowicz was able to defend his belt in a five round decision, handing Adesanya his first loss in the UFC. 

Blachowicz is looking to continue his way up the pound-for-pound list with his second title defense since winning the belt over Dominick Reyes at UFC 253.
