Glover Teixeira has plans to do something nobody else in MMA has been able to do in April.
Teixeira not only thinks he is going to win the UFC light heavyweight championship from Jon Jones at UFC 172, he is planning to finish him.
To date, the only loss on the resume of Jones is that of the disqualification variety.
“I have the power to beat him,” said Teixeira, during a recent appearance on Inside MMA. “I believe in my skills and I believe that on April 26 I’m gonna go and knock this guy out.”
Teixeira (22-2) has finished 19 of his opponents, including 13 via knockout. That includes the likes of Ryan Bader, Marvin Eastman and Fabio Maldonado.
“I have to believe my skills are gonna work against his,” he said. “In my mind, he’s gonna have to worry about what I’m gonna do with him.”
