Volkan Oezdemir. UFC light heavyweight: That is a very interesting matchup. I think Jan Blachowicz wins, he looks really incredible and is too well-rounded for Glover Teixeira.

Randy Brown, UFC welterweight: I’d like to see Glover Teixeira take it as I think he can use his grappling. But, I think Blachowicz defends his belt.
