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."

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
