UFC Glover Teixeira had been pencilled in to fight the winner of Saturday's Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson title bout. However, the fight was so tremendous, and close, that many feel an immediate rematch is warranted. While cautioning that the rematch talk is premature before the cuts and bruises heal, UFC president Dana White was amenable to the idea.

One figure who isn't is Glover Teixeira.

"Even I want to watch that fight again," said Teixeira. "But it's hard to say I'm OK with it, because I worked so hard to get this opportunity. I felt like I had my hands right there on the chance, and now they're going to take it away from me, and who knows for how long? It could be a year from now. It's really upsetting to me."

"It was a very close fight, but I scored the first round for Gustafsson and all the other rounds to Jones even though it was close — very close. Jones was getting hit a lot, but also he was pushing forward and trying to get takedowns, as well as catching Gustafsson with kicks and elbows."

"There's no way I'm just going to sit around. I'm healthy. I'm good. I had a few minor injuries before the fight with Bader, but nothing major, and we're getting it taken care of. I could be ready to fight in three or four months, and I don't want to wait. If they're going to do this rematch, then I want to get in there and fight someone else."

"I want that title shot. That's all I want. I'll sit back and wait and cross my fingers."

A fair point, but Maynard v Edgar 2 was a draw. Surely that warranted a rematch more than a close victory? Phone Post 3.0

glover stands no chance, jones will use his height and reach to keep glover away and then take him down quick.
