Hardcore MMA fans have had their fingers crossed for years that Glover Teixeira would one day make it into the Octagon, and, with just two fights under his UFC hat, he has put the whole light heavyweight division on notice. Teixeira takes on former light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson this Saturday night on UFC on FOX 6: Johnson vs. Dodson, and with a convincing win in his co-main event bout, he could catapult himself into upper echelon of the entire weight class.
In the following video, fans can watch Teixeira train while he talks about his journey into the UFC, talking about some of the athletes he has been training with to take on Jackson. At the end, he also has a few words for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, though perhaps all in jest.
