Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna are on a collision course to fight at UFC 160, and although Teixeira‘s reputation proceeds him coming to the UFC, Te Huna isn’t the type that intimidates easily. Teixeira is now 3-0 in the UFC, with his only decision coming to Quinton Jackson, and he is looking for a big win to start lobbying for a contender fight. Teixeira was supposed to fight Ryan Bader, but as reported on Fighters.com he was forced off the card with an injury. Te Huna is now 5-1 in the UFC, with a four fight winning streak rolling, and his only octagon loss came by way of Alexander Gustafsson. Check out the fight preview below.
