Maldonado willing, but doctor stops fight after 2nd versus Teixeira

by Damon Martin | source:

What proceeded to happen for the next almost 4 minutes was Teixeira beating the living hell out of Fabio Maldonado on the ground without mercy. To his credit, Maldonado refused to give up and continuously moved and shifted to escape, and with moments remaining in the round he managed to get back to his feet.

Much to Teixeira’s surprise, Maldonado still had some fight left in him and fired off a left hand that clipped him on the jaw, staggering him for a moment.

Somehow the fight made it to a second round and Teixeira unleashed the same kind of punishment all over again. Almost like he was auditioning for a role on ‘The Walking Dead’, Maldonado refused to go down despite taking more shots to the head than any zombie on the hit TV show.

When the second round ended, the cage side physician saw enough and stopped the bout despite protests from Maldonado, who somehow wanted to continue.

Lol! Or...he took a left hook from a former boxer with 21 kos who has a chin made of granite.

Good showing by Glover but he basically pounded out a guy with inferior grappling and striking and showed the potential weakness in his own chin while doing it. Someone like Rampage or Shogun could end the hype quickly and any calls to fight Jones are premature. He dominated tonight as expected but I think top guys will be less scared of him from here on.

I can't believe anyone thinks Fabio lost those 2 bullshit fights.

He's got excellent power punches. I think Jones has the wrestling advantage and the length might prove an issue in the stand up game . However Glover has the ability to KO Jones at any point. Would be an interesting JJ match up as well

One Never knows what the UFC will do re their fighter roster. 2 losses in a row have gotten people cut b4. But this guy is a special case and I'm betting they keep him around. Incredible heart

Glover is just violent. Goes to hurt and finish the other guy, a real fighter. Just like Chuck was.
