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

Monday, March 17, 2014

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.”
