Thiago Santos

Thiago Santos has been on one of the biggest stages in the UFC as he battled arguably the best MMA fighter of all time Jon Jones in UFC 239 back in July 2019 which is also his last fight in the organization. With Jones out, the UFC Light Heavyweight championship seems open for contention. A title shot against Glover Teixeira could very well be it. Santos took down reigning champion Jan Blachowicz. The fight resulted in a TKO in the third round. Santos defeated other top light heavyweights, paving his way to this fight . These include Jimi Manuwa, Eryk Sanders, Kevin Holland and Anthony Smith.

Glover Teixeira

Glover Teixeira is already 41 years old but he has proven that he has a lot left in his tank by winning his last four fights in the light heavyweight division. Added to the list of victories inclues Anthony Smith, whom he beat in May 2020. Teixeira succeeded in beating Nikita Krylov, Ion Cutelaba and Karl Roberson in that four-match winnings streak. Teixeira won many wars and lost some of them. Back in April 2014, he fought a younger Jon Jones and lost by unanimous decision.
