All relevant parties want Rampage vs. Teixeira

source: twitter

After pushing his unbeaten streak to 17 with a win over Fabio Maldonado Saturday night, Glover Teixeira wants to fight Quinton Jackson next. The two were scheduled to fight at UFC 153, before an injury forced "Rampage" off the card.

“I’d like to fight Quinton Jackson,” said Teixeira. “I never talked s--- about him. He was my idol. I loved that guy coming up in Pride, but he says I was talking bad about him. I’m not talking bad about him. I’m not afraid of no man."

Rampage is game, just moments ago Twittering:

Quinton Jackson ‏@Rampage4real
Yo @danawhite set up that fight with Glover please! Lets give him what he I won't let u down #fightofthenight

Rampage's tweet should put to rest discussion that Jackson no longer has heart for the game. The list of fighters that were not interested in facing Glover Teixeira inlcudes some mighty names.

And what did @danawhite think?

Dana White @danawhite
Sounds good bro

I would like to see it to see Glover take out page but the people thinking this is gonna be a stand up war are nuts.WHats Rampages weakness? Glover would take him down and look to beat him up and sub him. Dude caught Glover with a shot, Page can land a big left hook and take Glover out, I dont think Glover would play around.So Glover would take him down and look to win and Page would bitch saying I thought he would bang with him and he just took me down.

Totally disagree with you. But lets see what happens. I really do think this is a no brainer for the UFC. Glover obviously wants it, Rampage does as well and it is a fan friendly fight. I also think Glover has all the tools to destroy Rampage but Glover might possible be the type of fighter then resparks Rampage love for fighting.   I really do not see any losers in this fight apart from the relevence for title contention (it would be a little suspect to claim that Glover deserved a titleshot after a potential W against Rampage, at this moment in time.)

Again...Glover showd he is a total sucker for the left hook. I think he will continue to be. Bad news if you're fighting Rampage

That has fight of the night or KO of the night written all over it. PLus Glover will be able to get a little revenge for Chuck. I say Glover wins rd 2.

Rampage has a decent chance...Tex doesn't look as bad now...Maldonado even had him shook at one point

rampage couldnt beat ryan bader but somehow he's now gonna beat this monster?  yes I know he was "injured" just like every other fight he's lost.    Rampage couldnt KO or finish forrest or Jardine... 2 guys who go unconscious against a strong wind.  Rampage isnt a threat anymore.
