Teixeira hoping for first round KO of Jones

 

Glover Teixeira earned a UFC light heavyweight title shot with an impressive 5-0 run with three first round stoppages, and hopes to win the title the same way.

Undefeated over the last 20 bouts, Teixeira promises to be ready to go five rounds against the light heavyweight kingpin on April 26 at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md.

"In a perfect world, I’ll win via first-round knockout," Teixeira told MMAFighting.com. "But I believe it’s going to be a tough fight. Jon Jones is an excellent fighter, so I expect a tough bout. I will be ready for five rounds. I was ready to go five rounds against Bader and will be ready now, so we’ll see who will leave the cage as the champion."

He hasn't had very impressive competition, but I'm pretty sure Bader is top 10.

He's ranked at 10 now in a ranking that doesn't have Machida in the top ten. I can't remember whether Bader was 10 or not when they fought to be honest but, my point remains the same. Phone Post 3.0

Can't wait for this fight! Glover has great TDD defense, so I can't wait to see if John can take him down.

Not sure how glover will deal with Jon's height and reach ether. Really exciting fight. Hopeful Jon can get him down and end it tko or sub. !!

Maybe Machida isn't ranked top 10 because he moved to MW. Phone Post 3.0

You're missing the point that he was ranked when Glover fought Bader, which in turn would drop Bader a position. Phone Post 3.0

Hopefully he wins via KO because that will mean I just made a shit ton of money.

I've been on the Glover train for a while now, I like Jones. But I have a feeling Glover is gonna shock the world. Phone Post 3.0

Texeira can't win this fight, Jones can only lose it. Its Jones' easiest fight in a while.

Glover has little more than a punchers chance.
