Błachowicz vs. Teixeira
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R2
2 Guys who have had crazy late career resurgence despite almost exclusively being the underdogs. I hate to pick against Teixeira once again but he was hurt badly by Thiago every time the fight was on the feet and I think Jan will be able to nullify his grappling and land big shots. Glover still has power and absolutely can win this fight

Most likely the hardest fight in Jan's whole carrier, but he won't underestimate Glover, let's see how does Jan find himself in favourite's role. God if he wins how good of a win in his record he will have.

Jan Błachowicz, DEC
Early in the fight, Teixiera is gonna land takedowns and try to work for subs on the ground and try to gas out Jan. In the later rounds however, Jan is gonna find those slick bombs and combos. I see Jan taking a close, possibly split, decision.

Jan is quickly becoming my favorite champ at this moment. Staying busy, fighting often and giving Glover his due. He said he thought Glover deserved it over Izzy, and I'm glad to see the UFC is giving Glover his chance and that Jan isn't taking a long layoff, because Glover isn't getting any younger.

I just cannot bet against Teixeira any longer. Every time I watch him fight I think he will get KO'd and he nearly does, but then he just wears on guys and chokes them out. I think he will do it one last time before it catches up to him, all those near KO 180 degree turns culminating in a UFC championship. Then again this is Polish power we're talking about.. This is a great fight, I am happy we are seeing this and Israel Adesanya is nowhere near the division.

I think Jan is the deserved Champeon and i believe he's going to win the fight TKO Round 2. But if Glover can surprise the world i'm gonna be so happy the 2 are a class act.

Tough fight to predict. Błachowicz takes first two rounds, with biggest chance for KO/TKO in second, third round will be chess match, but as fight goes on, Teixeira will have big chance for submitting Jan. 60/40 for Jan by KO or split decision.

I wouldn’t count out a veteran like Glover, but I can say that Jan is a better fighter who has crisper striking and he’s capable of protecting himself on the ground from Teixeira.

Some PPV worthy bouts that could be added.
Chris Daukaus v Tom Aspinall winner is the better prospect 
Jose Aldo v Dominick Cruz
Add those two and it’s a good PPV, regardless of the other 2 bouts on the main card.
