Glover Teixeira: “Mike Tyson said I am going to be a champ”

UFC Light Heavyweight Glover Teixeira was ecstatic about his over James Te Huna at UFC 160: Velasquez Vs Silva II in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night. However, he was even more excited about the audience cage side. The day before at weigh ins, Teixeira had the chance to meet Mike Tyson and tell him that he has been a big fan of his, and it was even more exciting for Teixeira when he was able to knockout Te Huna in front of his idol. Watch the excited Teixeira describe to FUEL TV what it meant to him to fight in front of Tyson.
