Teixeira: Jones will beat Gustafsson, and that's good


Wednesday night was a big one for Glover Teixeira.

He beat Ryan Bader in main event, in the 1st round, via TKO, in front of his hometown, earning knockout of the night. That pushed his win stream to an astonishing 20 in a row (five in the UFC), and earned him a shot at the winner of the title fight between light heavyweght champion Jon Jones and challenger Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 on September 21.

Teixeira thinks that Jones will win, and that is how he likes it.

"My dream is to get the belt, but I believe Jon Jones will win," Teixeira told MMA Junkie. "That's the way I see it, and I definitely prefer to fight him, in a certain manner because Jon Jones has a better name. He's been a champ for a long time, so whoever goes to face him has to be very focused, very well-trained."

"The knockout power, I believe I have it, and if I hit him, he's going to go down."

What do you think UG? Does Jones beat Gustafsson? And if so, how will Glover do vs Jones?

  Don't think anyone wants a site they frequent to show a flagrant disregard for journalistic integrity.   Making a mistake is one thing -  everyone can't be expected to know every fighter. But once a mistake is made, correct it immidiately. It's been up over 5 hours.

I would expect this from B/R or even ESPN,but this is the UG! I feel like if anybody should get it right it would be here.Not a huge thing but it just seems a little disrespectful or maybe its just laziness

I like Glover, but he will get outclassed by JBJ. He is right about a few things. JBJ should beat Gus and yes he does have serious power in his hands. I'm sure Jon knows that and will not let Glover get in to land anything cleanly. Like I said, I like Glover, but just haven't seen anything from him to make me think he can beat the champ. This is MMA and anything can happen,
