Glover Teixeira må vara ny i UFC, men med 16 raka vinster så är han absolut inte ny inom MMA. Han kommer att få möta Quinton ”Rampage” Jackson under UFC 153 i Rio de Janeiro den 13 oktober. Där siktar Glover på att slå ut ”Rampage”.
Så här säger Teixeira:
Fighting Rampage in Rio is going to be very exciting for me because it’s Rio de Janeiro. I have been there many times in my fights and it’s very exciting. I went to the (first) UFC in Rio 1 and it was great. I love the crowd and it is going to be exciting this time for me. I come to California to help Lyoto for his fight and also to help myself. But it is mostly Lyoto’s training right now and he is getting ready for Ryan man. This is the last week. I will come back and I think I am going to do my camp in California. I think Lyoto and Ryan Bader’s fight is going to be a good fight and great for Lyoto. I am betting a third round knockout for Lyoto Machida. I am going to do my camp in California. It is going to be half and half time in between here (Blackhouse MMA) and San Luis, Obispo with John Hackelman and I am bringing some guys from Brazil to help me out. Fighting him (Jackson) is great because he is a, you know, and idol of this sport. I am training hard man, I am going to knock him out.
Om Glover lyckas med det får vi vänta och se. Men man kan tänka sig att han kommer att möta en laddad Jackson som har sagt att detta är hans sista match.
