Glover: Worried about Jones? He should be worrying about me

 

UFC light heavyweight Glover Teixeira recently appeared live on AXS TV's Inside MMA, ahead of his fight with champion Jon Jones at UFC 172 on April 26.

"Do you know how to beat him, you think?" asked AXS TV commentator Bas Rutten.

"Yah, of course," replied Teixeira. "I have the power to beat him. I have my skills - I have to believe in my skills, that are going to work against his skills.

"People always tell me, 'are you bringing in this guy or that guy' to emulate Jon Jones, but I don't really worry about him. In my mind, man, he really has to worry about what I am going to do.

"He's the champion, but hey, I really believe in my skills. I believe that April 26 I am going to go over there and knock this guy out."

"I have the power to beat him. I have to believe my skills are gonna work against his skills. People always tell me, 'Oh, you need to bring this guy or that guy to [emulate] Jon Jones,' but I don't really worry about him. In my mind, he's gonna have to worry about what I'm gonna do with him. He's the champion, but I believe in my skills and I believe that on April 26 I'm gonna go [to Baltimore] and knock this guy out."

He's a much more complete fighter than the Rampage of this day and age. He may be arguably the best pure boxer in the division (which I believe is one of Jon's weaker areas), for sure has one shot ko power, is an impressive grappler all around, and isn't afraid to mix it up. I also don't see Jon taking him down very often. I'm a Bones fan but this could possibly his toughest match up yet.

I like Glover's attitude. "I don't really worry about him. In my mind, man, he really has to worry about what I am going to do." "He's the champion, but hey, I really believe in my skills. I believe that April 26 I am going to go over there and knock this guy out." Looking forward to the fight and I wish him luck.

If Jones allows Glover to get in as many shots as Gus did, hes going to be in trouble.

Legit lol. Jones gonna sub Tex in in the 4th or 5th round. Glover's tank not gonna hold up for 5 rounds.

Glover has the standup advantage if he can stay on the insideJones will be looking for the takedown early imo

Jones will eye poke and knee kick his way to yet another victory. The guy should have been DQ'ed half a dozen times.

I don't really worry about him but he should worry about me.
