Not sure if this is from post fight presser or an Ariel interview or what... I like it, however.

Teixeira said:
"He's a legend in this sport, and I feel great going in there and having that fight with him. I stood up with him, took him down, did it all. I feel great about the fight."
"I beat a guy who's been in the top 10 for how long?"

"He's an ex-champ and a tough guy. Like Dana was saying, he was training hard. He was tough. He's so tough. He can take a punch.
"But this win puts me up there. I'm ready to fight anyone."

Teixeira then went on to say Jackson's gave him this message:

"'Now I'm your fan. Go get the title,'"

Dana White followed up with:
"I honestly believe that tonight if Glover was fighting anyone else he would have knocked them out in the first round," he said after the fight. "'Rampage' got hit with that shot, and not only can he punch hard, he can take a punch."

Great matchup right there. That would tell the fans a lot about Glover. If he can deal with Phil's wrestling, it would make the Jones fight more appealing.

You could see Rampage mentally break once he realized his punches had no effect on Glover. It was the same look he had when Jones kept kicking his knee and poking him in the eye.

Rampage was fucking ready but was no match for Glover. Glover even let him up from those take downs. Glover only took Page down to score points.

Dude is good and I hope he gets the title, but it's going to be very hard for anyone to beat jones with his pterodactyl wingspan. Phone Post

Their fight looked like a glorified sparring match to me. If Glover can't finish Rampage there is no way he can handle Jones.

I would like to see him fight Davis as well.

Rampage has only been finished once inside the UFC. By Jon Jones. Phone Post

Why not just say nobody can beat Jon Jones then? Because outside of Anderson Silva it's pretty unlikely anyone will finish Rampage. Phone Post

^^that, Glover simply isnt fast enough to get in on jones and land punches..hell, Glover was missing many punches with Rampage, so hitting Jones will be extremely difficult..

Glover is tough but im still not THAT impressed with him..no way do i see him beating Jones..i see nothing in his arsenal to make me believe that..

Glover/Rashad or against Davis would be interesting.

Davis is a tough match up for anyone, even fighters with decent TD defense

You just outed yourself as not knowing what you're watching.

And "if Glover can't finish Rampage" ... uh Rampage is notoriously tough to finish.
