UFC 267 will take place on October 30. As the primary event of the evening, Polish champion Jan Blachowicz will defend the semi-lightweight belt against the claims of Brazilian veteran Glover Teixeira. After that, the Russian carnival will start. Twelve fighters from Russia will participate in this event. Each of the following fights will have a representative of Russia: Petr Yan, Islam Makhachev, Alexander Volkov, Khamzat Chimaev (a former Russian, but still), Magomed Ankalaev, Zubaira Tuhugov, Albert Duraev, Roman Kopylov, Shamil Gamzatov, Magomed Mustafayev, Damir Ismagulov, and Tagir Ulanbekov.
It is quite interesting that according to bookmakers all Russian fighters are the favorites in their fights. Except for the two 'derby' (Duraev - Kopylov and Mustafayev - Ismagulov).Bet on Jan Blachowicz — Glover Teixeira with 1xBet
Both fighters showed their mastery quite late, matured just when they were already gatekeepers. They reached their goals with devastating defeats. They both know how to work on their mistakes. Both of them fight without mercy towards themselves or their opponent. They’re sure to show a spectacular fight. No one of them will take captives. For both of them, a defeat would mean the end of their careers.

The Most Anticipated Fights at UFC 267
Petr Yan – Cory Sandhagen
Petr Yan lost his title against Aljamain Sterling due to disqualification. He performed a banned punch, and Sterling couldn't (or didn't want to) continue the fight. Then there were a couple of attempts to have a rematch, but "the champion" either got injured or got sick. The Russian got tired of it and took another fight, against the number three of the rating Corey Sandhagen.Bet on Petr Yan – Cory Sandhagen with 1xBet
Sandhagen is a completely different fighter to Sterling. He prefers to fight on the feet and is known for his spectacular knockouts. Nevertheless, Peter can defeat him and is even a bookmakers’ favorite. Yan is a truly versatile fighter and is likely to impose his style of the fight.
Alexander Volkov – Marcin Tybura
Alexander Volkov has already fought twice in the challenger fights and missed both of his chances. To get back to his former position he has to beat Marcin Tybura. The Polish fighter is on top of his physical shape, he won five victories in a row. The last two by TKO in the first and second rounds.
Islam Makhachev – Dan Hooker
Makhachev hasn't lost since 2015. In the public’s opinion, he is considered to be “Khabib's heir”. He is moving steadily up the rankings, and Hooker will be the strongest opponent of his career. Dan has been around for title fights during recent years, but he lost his two most important fights with Dustin Porter and Michael Chandler. Now he's a strong gatekeeper and the first step for Makhachev in his quest for the belt.
Khamzat Chimaev – Li Jingliang
This fight is a moment of truth for Chimaev too. This year for Hamzat was just awful. He was sick, injured and even had a speech about the end of his career. But he cooled down a bit and is back in the cage. He has a lot to prove to MMA fans, including his loud attacks on social media.
