Jan Blachowicz vs. Glover Teixeira – Head to Head
Title holder Jan Blachowicz has had his fair share of bouts with Brazilian martial artists but is yet to square off against Glover Teixeira. It will be the pair’s first meeting.
38-year-old Polish MMA fighter Jan Maciej Blachowicz is the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Light Heavyweight title holder. The fighter from Warsaw made the most of former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones vacating his title to compete in the Heavyweight category. On the 27th of September, 2020, UFC 253 saw Blachowicz fight and win against Dominick Reyes of the United States of America to claim the vacant title. In what was adjudged the night’s performance, Blachowicz ousted Reyes in the second round via TKO. He then defended his title in a great fashion against Israel Adesanya, handing the Kiwi his first MMA defeat in the process.
6’2″ in height and 93 kilograms in weight, Jan Blachowicz has a 78′ reach and uses the Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighting style. His quick lateral movement and the ability to land a killer blow have led to his nickname of ‘Polish Power.’ Blachowicz has a career win-loss record of 28-8. He has been in solid form of late, winning 5 fights in a row.
Jan Blachowicz’s last 5 fights:
