UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has announced he will be returning to the octagon at UFC Fight Night on 13th June. This is not only great news for McGregor, who was stripped of his lightweight title in April after he refused to defend it against interim champ Tony Ferguson, but also for the fans as they get their first chance to see him back inside the Octagon since November 2016.
The “jan blachowicz vs glover teixeira full fight” is an upcoming UFC event that will be held on January 17th, 2017. The main event will feature the Jan Blachowicz vs Glover Teixeira title fight.
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — Khamzat Chimaev has returned. In a major manner.
In a welterweight match on the UFC 267 main event (Live on ESPN+) in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, the man who emerged as the UFC’s hottest prospect in 2020 defeated Li Jingliang by technical submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:16 of the first round. Li was knocked out and the fight was stopped by referee Jason Herzog.
“Are you convinced now?” In his postfight interview, Chimaev remarked. “I declared that I would murder everyone. Now do you trust me?”
Chimaev caught Li in a takedown attempt as soon as the bout began, saying something to UFC president Dana White as he carried Li into the air and accomplished the move. Chimaev made it seem simple after he was on the ground. He grabbed Li’s back, landed a hard ground and pound with Li flattened down on his stomach, and then choked him.
Chimaev said, “I’m the champion.” “I am the king,” he declares.
Due to a bad case of COVID-19 with long-term consequences, Chimaev has not fought since September 2020. He had to be admitted to the hospital because he was coughing up blood. Chimaev pondered retiring since his illness was so serious and recuperation so tough.
But, much to the displeasure of every other competitor in the UFC’s middleweight and welterweight divisions, he did not retire. Chimaev had surgery, but he recovered and looked as good as new after 13 months away. He had some concerns with his weigh-in on Friday, with some accusing him of attempting to cheat the scale by pushing down on a towel, but he had no such issues on Saturday, when he sprinted right by Li.
Last year, Chimaev (10-0) established the record for the shortest time to two victories in UFC history (10 days). With a 17-second knockout of Gerald Meerschaert on Sept. 19, 2020, he set a new record for the quickest three victories in modern UFC history (66 days). Chimaev, 27, has won all one of his ten career titles, with the exception of three, all coming in the first round.
Chimaev has dominated all four of his UFC matches. He has a substantial strike edge of 112-1 over his opponents, according to ESPN Stats & Information, and a total strike differential of 254-2. He’s had four takedowns and hasn’t given up any. Chimaev has an 11:56 control time in those four battles, while his opponents had a 0 control time.
In his previous three fights, Li (18-7) has lost two of them. In his whole career, the China native has only been defeated once. Li, 33, has a UFC record of 10-5.
Petr Yan (15-2, 7-1 UFC, -220) vs. Cory Sandhagen (14-3, 7-2 UFC, +180) is fighting for the interim men’s bantamweight title.
The combatants are preparing to enter the Octagon.
Lightweight: Islam Makhachev (21-1, 10-1 UFC) wins by first-round submission over Dan Hooker (21-11, 11-7 UFC) (Watch this bout on ESPN+)

Makhachev gained control in 45 seconds and went on to win his tenth match in a row.
With a right hook and a double-leg takedown in the first minute, the 30-year-old Russian, who hasn’t lost since 2015, sent Hooker to the canvas. Makhachev, who is rated No. 8 in the ESPN lightweight rankings and is undoubtedly on the rise, systematically worked his way into position for a kimura submission, taping out Hooker at 2:25.
Makhachev put up a confident, efficient performance, avoiding Hooker’s hitting for the first few seconds before pouncing to push the fight to where he thrives. Makhachev has made his third consecutive surrender, and his tenth overall. It was his seventh first-round appearance overall, but his first since 2018.
Give the championship match to @MAKHACHEVMMA! I’m not even interested in finding out who wins next week. This guy has simply nailed it. This was Khabib’s MSG moment, and boy did he not disappoint. He’ll be the champion.
30 October 2021 — Daniel Cormier (@dc mma)
Makhachev’s nine-fight victory run is tied for the longest in the lightweight class with champion Charles Oliveira.
Hooker, a 31-year-old New Zealander, has lost three of his past four matches. For the second time in less than a month, he was competing.
Alexander Volkov (34-9, 8-3 UFC) wins a unanimous decision against Marcin Tybura (22-7, 9-6) at heavyweight (Watch this bout on ESPN+).

Volkov of Moscow won a unanimous decision against Tybura, with judges scoring the bout 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28. Volkov ended Tybura’s five-fight winning run by going 3-1 in his past four fights.
Volkov, 33, entered the ring and set the pace for Tybura. In the first round, he was aggressive with his punches and kicks, and he spent considerable time in the top position. Volkov’s gas tank seemed to be depleted as the battle went, despite winning the standup and defending Tybura’s wrestling.
Volkov won his seventh professional UFC fight, after a poor five-round decision loss to now-interim heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane in June. Tybura of Brazil loses for the first time since September of this year.
Magomed Ankalaev (16-1, 7-1 UFC) wins a majority decision against Volkan Oezdemir (17-6, 5-5 UFC) at light heavyweight (Watch this bout on ESPN+).

Ankalaev took several early blows that helped him out, but by the middle of the first round, he was the one chasing the opponent. He dominated the remainder of the fight to win for the seventh time in a row, beating a previous UFC championship contender.
Ankalaev, a 29-year-old Russian, has not lost since his first career defeat in the UFC in 2018. With two minutes remaining in Round 1, he reversed the tide by knocking down Oezdemir with a straight left hand. Then, with a quick punch in the second round, he created a terrible gash above Oezdemir’s left eye. After that, Oezdemir was unable to build any offensive, and Ankalaev was awarded the victory by all three judges: 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28.
Since losing a UFC championship fight in 2018, Oezdemir, a 32-year-old Swiss fighter, has lost four of his last six fights.
Amanda Ribas (11-2, 5-1 UFC) wins a unanimous decision against Virna Jandiroba (17-3, 3-3 UFC) at strawweight (Watch this bout on ESPN+).

Ribas overcame some early hardship to defeat Jandiroba by considerable margin.
In the first round, Ribas, 28, gave up a takedown to Jandiroba and struggled to get back to her feet. Just before the finish of the round, the referee decided to stop the action, and Jandiroba down Ribas with a right hand in the last 10 seconds.
However, after that first round, the Brazilian competitor rebounded and went on to defeat Jandiroba on the feet. She figured out Jandiroba’s timing and distance and began throwing long punches and kicks at will. Jandiroba was forced to keep the fight standing due to her takedown resistance, and she almost achieved a knockout in the third round with a left head kick.
Ribas had two bouts against Angela Hill postponed earlier this year, and she was coming off her first defeat in the UFC, against Marina Rodriguez, in January.
Zubaira Tukhugov (20-5-1, 5-2-1 UFC) wins a unanimous decision against Ricardo Ramos (15-4, 6-3 UFC) in the men’s featherweight division (Watch this fight on ESPN+).
The Caucasus area of Russia’s Khabib Nurmagomedov’s squad is recognized for their powerful wrestling. Tukhugov demonstrated at UFC 267 that his side could win through striking as well.
Tukhugov injured and bloodied Ramos in the first round and landed often throughout the fight to win by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28). Ramos wobbled Tukhugov late in the first round with a spinning back elbow, and he had some great moments in the second, but Tukhugov mixed in his outstanding wrestling late and won.
Early in the first round, Tukhugov struck powerful combinations and cut Ramos on the left side of his face. As the bout progressed, he continued to inflict harm with his boxing. In an intriguing bout, Ramos delivered his huge right hand on a frequent basis as well. Tukhugov, on the other hand, definitely won the battle.
Tukhugov, 30, has only lost one fight in his last four. The Chechen fighter has a UFC record of 5-2-1. Ramos, a 26-year-old Brazilian who trains in California with Team Alpha Male, has lost two of his last three bouts.
Middleweight: Albert Duraev (15-3, 1-0 UFC) wins a unanimous decision over Roman Kopylov (8-2, 1-2 UFC) (Watch this bout on ESPN+).
Duraev remained unbeaten in a battle that was moving at a snail’s pace by the third round, with one fighter’s face covered in blood and the other sporting a purple, bulging bruise that covered his left eye.
The grueling action in the opening two rounds, during which Duraev gained control on his route to a decision (30-27, 29-27, 29-27) in his UFC debut, Duraev’s 10th consecutive win, caused the slowness.
Midway through Round 2, Kopylov, who had recently taken some damage, was jammed against the cage and escaped a takedown by holding the cage, which was a pivotal moment in this battle of Russian warriors. When referee Jason Herzog saw this, he paused the bout and returned the men to the clinch, where Duraev, 32, finished his takedown. From then, it was all downhill for Kopylov, 30, who has lost his only two UFC fights in a succession. In 2019, he made his debut.
Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos (23-7, 9-3 UFC) wins a unanimous decision over Benoit Saint Denis (8-1, 0-1 UFC) at welterweight (Watch this bout on ESPN+).
Zaleski won his first bout of the year with judges scores of 29-26, 29-26, and 29-26, but referee Vyacheslav Kiselev became the event’s primary story.
In the second round, Zaleski of Brazil should have won by TKO after battering Saint Denis about the Octagon for over five minutes. He pursued him to the fence, wobbling him with two right hands and unloading punches and knees to the body.
An MMA referee’s primary responsibility is to safeguard the combatants. In more ways than one, this referee is doing a poor job at it. #UFC267
30 October 2021 — Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22)
Saint Denis did little except cover up and slump meekly against the fence at one point, but Kiselev refused to call the fight off. Saint Denis eventually managed to slow Zaleski down with a takedown attempt and protect himself a little better, but the next two rounds were one-way traffic.
Zaleski out-landed him in total strikes 110 to 51, according to unofficial UFC stats. It was Saint Denis’ first defeat in his professional career.
Following the bout, the UFC removed Kiselev from all remaining UFC 267 responsibilities.
Michal Oleksiejczuk (16-4 1 NC, 4-2 1 NC UFC) defeated Shamil Gamzatov (14-1, 1-1 UFC) via TKO in the first round (Watch on ESPN+).
Oleksiejczuk has never taken a step backward in his career. As he approached, he took a few punches but threw many more, and the punishment and pressure eventually showed on Gamzatov’s face as he was chased and harried until a left uppercut felled him and led to a ground-and-pound finish at 3:31. Gamzatov suffered his first defeat.
Oleksiejczuk, a 26-year-old Pole, knocked out his eighth opponent in the first round for the 11th time in his career. After a two-fight losing run, he has won his last two fights.
I was never a fan of Oleksiejczuk’s “herky-jerky” technique until I saw how successful he was at going straight to the body and maintaining a constant rhythm. This allows his opponents to take strong blows from the top. That’s one of the most appealing aspects about MMA. It’s not always necessary to follow the rules! #UFC267
30 October 2021 — Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA)
Gamzatov, a 31-year-old Russian fighter, hadn’t competed since his UFC debut in 2019. He was on his back foot the whole time, exchanging blows and attempting to avoid Oleksiejczuk’s onslaught. He was unable to complete the task and was finally apprehended.
Men’s featherweight: Lerone Murphy (11-0-1, 3-0-1 UFC) wins by second-round knockout over Makwan Amirkhani (16-7, 6-5 UFC) (Watch this bout on ESPN+).
Murphy anticipated Amirkhani’s attempt at a takedown. And boy, did he make up for it.
Murphy absolutely rocked Amirkhani with a right knee to the head when he ducked in for a double-leg takedown. On collision, Amirkhani was knocked unconscious. The match ended with 14 seconds remaining in the second round. Amirkhani was knocked out for a long time after the KO, but he was able to get up on the stool after regaining consciousness.
“I saw him drop, dip, dip after that initial left punch, and I knew the knee was going to be there,” Murphy stated in his postfight interview.
That was lovely.
30 October 2021 — Sean O’Malley (@SugaSeanMMA)
Amirkhani thoroughly controlled the opening round with his wrestling and grappling. He brought Murphy out immediately away and stayed with him for the remainder of the round. Murphy knew a takedown was on the way at the start of the second, and he timed the knee precisely.
Murphy, 30, is undefeated in the UFC with a 3-0-1 record. In the featherweight class, the English boxer seems to have a lot of promise. Amirkhani, a 32-year-old Iranian fighter based in Finland, has lost three of his last five fights.
Middleweight: Andre Petroski (7-2, 2-0 UFC) wins via third-round submission over Hu Yaozong (3-2, 0-3 UFC) (Watch this fight on ESPN+)

Petroski was in complete control over 14 minutes and 46 seconds, landing strong punches, taking down opponents, and securing dominating positions to threaten submission attempts. Hu stayed in there until, with 14 seconds remaining in the final round, Petroski was able to finish him out with an arm triangle choke.
Petroski, 30, of Philadelphia, was victorious in his second UFC bout in the third round. His seven wins have all come by way of a finish. This was the third-most recent finish in a three-round UFC middleweight contest.
Hu entered the UFC with a 2-0 record and has lost all three of his bouts in the Octagon. The 26-year-old Chinese fighter hadn’t fought since 2018, and that bout was at light heavyweight. Hu’s last bout, in which he made his UFC debut, was at heavyweight.
Men’s flyweight: Tagir Ulanbekov (14-1, 2-0 UFC) wins a split decision against Allan Nascimento (17-6, 0-1 UFC) (Watch this bout on ESPN+)
In the view of the judges, Ulanbekov’s takedowns and top game exceeded Nascimento’s submission attempts and aggressive guard.
With relentless takedowns and grappling, Ulanbekov pulled out a split decision victory (29-28, 28-29, 29-28). Nascimento had his moments, including kimura and armbar attempts with elbows sprinkled in from the bottom in the second round. The judges, on the other hand, appeared to favor Ulanbekov’s ability to shift the fight’s position.
The fight’s greatest moments occurred in the first round, when Ulanbekov almost submitted Nascimento with a guillotine in mount. Nascimento managed to elude capture in some way.
The 30-year-old Ulanbekov has won five consecutive fights, including his first two in the UFC. At flyweight, the Dagestani boxer has established himself as a contender. Nascimento, a 30-year-old Brazilian, was fighting for the first time in the UFC.
