Teixeira tells what it will take for Ankalaev to defeat Blachowicz

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira shared his expectations for the upcoming fight for the championship belt between Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blachowicz, which will be held on December 10 at UFC 282.

I think Ankalaev will win against Jan, although I said Adesanya will win against Yan as well. Jan is a very tricky fighter, he deals very well with counterpunchers, and Ankalaev is a counterpuncher. Ankalaev has better wrestling, he can take him on the ground. I don't know, he's a very powerful fighter. I think he's going to win.

Ankalaev last competed in the UFC 277 in July 2022, beating Anthony Smith by TKO in the second round. Magomed, 30, has 17 wins and one defeat under his belt.

Blachowicz had his last fight on UFC on ESPN 36 in May, 2022, when he defeated Aleksandar Rakić by TKO in the third round. The 39-year-old Blachowicz has 29 wins and nine losses under his belt.
