Glover Teixeira hoping for first round KO of Jon Jones
Glover Teixeira earned a UFC light heavyweight title shot with an impressive 5-0 run with three first round stoppages, and hopes to win the title the same way.
Undefeated over the last 20 bouts, Teixeira promises to be ready to go five rounds against the light heavyweight kingpin on April 26 at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md.
“In a perfect world, I’ll win via first-round knockout,” Teixeira told MMAFighting.com. “But I believe it’s going to be a tough fight. Jon Jones is an excellent fighter, so I expect a tough bout. I will be ready for five rounds. I was ready to go five rounds against Bader and will be ready now, so we’ll see who will leave the cage as the champion.”
