Great fight and incredible run by @gloverteixeira. You totally deserve to fight for the title and get taste of the #LegendaryPolishPower. If Adesanya can't wait till March, let's go #UFCVegas13
Adesanya is expected to get the next shot at Blachowicz, but Blachowicz recently stated that he cannot defend the title until March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in his home country of Poland. If Teixeira winds up getting the title shot, it would be his first opportunity at the gold since losing to then champion Jon Jones at UFC 172 in April of 2014.
