There was a time when Glover Teixeira was one of the best of the light-heavyweights, falling to champ Jon Jones but beating the tar out of everyone else. We haven’t seen that version of Teixeira in a while, but it’s good to remember the good old days, right?
The co-main event of UFC Fight Night 134 pits the Brazilian against Corey Anderson, an okay fighter who’s been getting good at beating the lesser fighters of the weight class and falling to the better ones. Where does Teixeira stand among them?
Apparently Teixeira doesn’t stand much at all, because he cannot stop Anderson from taking him down. This one is a total wrestling match, with Anderson getting his foe down, sometimes sliding into mount, and Teixeira squirming out, standing up, and struggling unsuccessfully to stop from going lateral again.
It isn’t a bad fight, but it isn’t fantastic, either, and when time runs out, it makes for the NINTH decision in a row for this card. Please shoot me now.
