When is UFC 267: Date, Time
UFC 267 takes place today, Saturday, October 30, 2021.
After a string of dates back in the U.S., UFC returns to Abu Dhabi for UFC 267, with the event taking place live from the Etihad Arena.
Since the action is taking place on the UAE’s Gulf Standard Time, you’ll want to note the unusual start time for viewers hoping to watch UFC 267 in the U.S. Preliminary action begins at 10:30am ET (6:30pm GST) with the UFC 267 main card start time scheduled for 2pm ET (10pm Abu Dhabi time).
This marks a change from most UFC events, which typically take place in the evening for American viewers.

UFC 267: Blachowicz vs. Teixeira Odds, Fight Card
UFC 267 features Jan Blachowicz vs. Glover Teixeira in a title bout for the UFC light heavyweight championship. Blachowicz is one of the most dominant fighters in the league and the odds-on favorite to defend his title against Teixeira. The Polish MMA fighter (28-8) comes into UFC 267 on the heels of a high-profile win over Israel Adesanya in March.
Teixeira, meantime, is one of the older fighters in the league, at 42 years old. Still, the Brazilian (32-7) can’t be counted out, riding a five-fight win streak into UFC 267. Teixeira will likely have added motivation to take down Blachowicz – he hasn’t been given the opportunity to challenge for the 205-pound belt since dropping a decision to Jon Jones back in 2014.
The rest of the UFC 267 main card features some intriguing matchups. The co-main event is an interim bantamweight title bout between former champ Petr Yan vs. Cory Sandhagen.
A lightweight bout pits Islam Makhachev vs. Dan Hooker, in what will be Hooker’s second fight in a month. Hooker defeated Nasrat Haqparast by unanimous decision at UFC 266.
Another competitive fight pits Alexander Volkov vs. Marcin Tybura in a heavyweight matchup, while a welterweight fight features Li Jingliang vs. Khamzat Chimaev. The first fight on the UFC 267 main card will feature Magomed Ankalaev vs. Volkan Oezdemir in a light heavyweight fight.
