Jan Blachowicz will defend his light heavyweight title on Saturday against Glover Teixeira in the main event of UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi. The main UFC 267 fight card is set for 2 p.m. ET. Blachowicz is a -280 favorite (risk $280 win $100), while Teixeira comes back +240 (risk $100 to win $240) in the latest UFC 267 odds at Caesars Sportsbook.

Before locking in any picks for Blachowicz vs. Teixeira and the rest of the UFC 267 card, make sure you see the MMA betting advice and predictions from SportsLine analyst Andrew Gombas. 

Gombas is a former NCAA wrestler who taps into his experience on the mat to help understand and dissect the X's and O's of MMA matchups in a manner that sets him apart from other MMA analysts. He started the MMA handicapping service MMA Knockout Bets in 2018 and has shown a profit every year since.

With more than 1,200 selections tracked by the third-party monitoring service Bet MMA, he has shown a 10 percent return on investment for his followers. In 2020, $100 bettors who tailed his picks were up $9,200

Last week at UFC Fight Night, his winners included calling a victory for Marvin Vettori (-180) against Paulo Costa (+160) in a matchup of ranked middleweight contenders that was changed to a light heavyweight bout on short notice because of Costa's issues with making the contracted weight. Anyone who has followed Gombas is WAY UP! 

Now, he has locked in on Blachowicz vs. Teixeira and the whole UFC 267 card  from every angle and released his top selections. A successful parlay of these picks would result in a payout of better than 9-1

Both fighters are considered late bloomers of sorts. Blachowicz (28-8), 38, was nearly cut from the UFC roster early in his career after losing four of his first six fights with the promotion. But he has now won nine of his last 10 and is on a five-fight winning streak that saw him capture the light heavyweight crown vacated by former champion Jon Jones.

Teixeira (32-7) is a one-time title-challenger who lost to Jones in 2014 and appeared headed toward journeyman status following a 2-3 stretch. But the 41-year-old Brazilian also has surged to five straight victories to earn another opportunity for the belt.

For UFC 267, we can tell you Gombas is backing Alexander Volkov (-300) to get his hand raised against Marcin Tybura (+250) in a matchup of veteran heavyweights. He's also backing one fighter "whose boxing will be too much" and emerge with a dominant victory! You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before locking in any UFC Fight Night bets of your own.
