It’s been over a year since Thiago Santos was in action against Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title as he returns to take on Glover Teixeira at the UFC Apex Center on November 7.
For the Thiago Santos vs Glover Teixeira odds, it is Santos who is the favorite with Teixeira being listed as the underdog. We have a full preview, picks and the UFC Fight Night: Santos vs Teixeira odds below.
The Santos fight vs Jones last July resulted in a split decision with one judge actually giving the win to “Marreta.” That was his first loss in the light heavyweight division and he’s looking to get back to a title fight quickly.
It was way back in 2014 when Teixeira fought Jones for the belt but lost via unanimous decision. Now riding a four-fight winning streak and at the ripe age of 41, this is a must-win for Glover if he wants another shot at gold.

Andrei Arlovski vs Tanner Boser Betting Odds
It hasn’t been a pretty run for former champion Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski (+240), going 4-9 with one no contest over his last 14 fights, but he has been competitive in the majority of those bouts.

Raoni Barcelos vs Khalid Taha Betting Odds
Raoni Barcelos (-370) looks to extend an eight-fight winning streak that dates back five years as he makes his first appearance of 2020. This is also the first fight in 2020 for Khalid “The Warrior” Taha (+280), but that’s because he was suspended for a year after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.
Prediction: Raoni Barcelos (-370) via knockout
