Teixeira to receive title fight with impressive next win over Bader


Jon Jones is next set to defend his light heavyweight title at UFC 165 versus Alexander Gustafson, and it now appears that the next challenger may already be set:

UFC exec Marshall Zelaznik revealed at Saturday night's post-UFC 163 press conference in Rio de Janeiro that UFC President Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva told him an impressive win by Teixeira in his upcoming bout with Ryan Bader (15-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) could earn him a crack at the belt.

"Dana and Joe have confirmed with a strong victory by Glover that he probably gets the winner of the Jon Jones fight," Zelaznik said.

"Glover's got an opportunity to go for that belt with a big win, so we're expecting big things in Belo Horizonte," Zelaznik said.

Glover is a beast.  I love his fights against Kingsbury and Maldonado.

Good.Glover has been fighting for years, in all sorts of small shows, always brings it, and this would be a HUGE milestone for him.This guy deserves it with a strong performance, and I'd pay to see it.

and let's not forget that Jones got his first title shot after beating Ryan Bader. Jones was also 10 years younger with less experience. Glover is as ready as he will ever be, let's fucking see it.
