Teixeira: In my head, I'm the favorite


When Glover Teixeira steps into the cage with Jon Jones at UFC 172, he will do so as a four to one underdog in the bout, but in his mind, he's the favorite:

“There was no way I was going to be the betting favorite,” Teixeira, a 4-1 underdog, told MMAjunkie. “In my own head, and that of my trainer’s, I am the favorite. But it’s no surprise that I’m not in the eyes of the fans.”

“We arrived at this point with a great deal of sacrifice,” Teixeira said. “Those who followed my career know the difficulties I endured in Brazil. Now the chance to fight for the UFC belt is an achievement in itself. I’m training harder than I’ve ever trained before. I’m getting that belt.”

I prefer to titty fuck Jesus every night.. shows real dominance in the imaginary world. Mel Gibson is fingering my cornhole for greater additional pleasure. Reluctantly. And then I cum on Christina Hendrick's tits for the grand finale.

^^problem is, Glover is much too plodding and slow to get in on Jones to land a punch..Jones will be in and out with kicks/punches all night...Jones will probably just take Glover down and dominate him there..

besides Glovers Ko power im baffled as to how or why people think he is such a big threat to Jones..Jones is way too fast and technical for Glover and his wrestling is much better..if Glover can somehow get inside and land a big shot then jones is in trouble but damn guys, Maldonaldo and Bader both put Glover on queer street in their fights..Glover wont even put Jones in danger in this fight i dont think..
