UFC 267 is set to take place in Abu Dhabi on October 30 and the official poster for the event has been released!

Dana White and his team are busy with UFC 266 next week. Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega are set to face each other for the featherweight title, while Valentina Shevchenko will defend her belt against Lauren Murphy.

That’s an incredible card on its own, but UFC 267 could just be a tiny bit better. The event is about six weeks away and the official poster featuring eight men has got fans extremely excited.

UFC 267 will be headlined by Jan Blachowicz defending his light heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira. The bantamweight belt will also be on the line as Peter Yan hopes to get his crown back from Aljamain Sterling.

Islam Makhachev finally gets his wish to take on Rafael dos Anjos. The former has won each of his last eight fights and if he can get the better of RDA next month, the big boys in the division will have to watch out for him.

The most exciting part of the card is Khamzat Chimaev’s return. Borz has been away from the action for over a year, but he’s now back and is set to face Li Jingliang in what will likely be an incredible fight.

A look at UFC 268

UFC 268 has been scheduled for November 7 at Madison Square Gardens, just a week after UFC 267. We simply can’t wait for this one.

Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington are set to go head to head for the second time, as are Rose Namajunas and Zhang Weili. The most anticipated fight on the night, however, is the undercard.

Michael Chandler and Justin Gaethje are finally set to square off. Both men have had a lot to say about each other over the last few weeks. Chandler would love to bounce back after his defeat to Charles Oliveira, while a win for Gathje would almost guarantee him a title shot.

This will surely be an incredible fight.
