Machida: Teixeira will be the champion


Glover Teixeira might be the next in line for a UFC title shot if he gets past Ryan Bader, and Lyoto Machida believes not only will he beat Bader, but also champion Jon Jones if given the chance:

"I believe Glover is the next champion," Machida told "I don’t see anyone in the light heavyweight division to stop Glover Teixeira. Not even Jon Jones."

"We train together for a long time," he said. "To do well against him, you really, really need to know what you’re doing. He’s too strong for this division. He’s a heavyweight, and he’s durable. He will hurt you for five rounds."

There seems to be a lot of hype for a guy that hasn't fought a top 10... or has he?

Glover is not the one the prophecy spoke of. Jones' reign of terror has many years left to run.

This is not a biased opinion. Not one bit. Not at all.

Wow, Machida says a fellow Brazilian and training partner will be the next belt holder. Never saw that coming./s
