The Chuck Liddell Protege, Glover Teixeira (20-2) continues to shine, as he defeats former champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (32-11) at UFC on Fox 6 in Chicago. The fight proved to be a majority stand-up affair with both men exchanging combinations. Teixeira was able to rock Jackson early on, but unable to capitalize. It was likely single leg take downs in the second and third, as well as the knockdown that earned Teixeira the judges unanimous nod.
Glover Teixeira defeats Quinton “Rampage” Jackson via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)
The contender is yet to lose a fight in the UFC , riding an astounding 18 fight win-streak. With his current string of highlight stoppages, not many light heavyweights are lining up to take on the heavy handed Brazilian. Despite the performance, the belt will be in hiatus until after April as the champ handles coaching duties on The Ultimate Fighter against Chael Sonnen in a build up to their showdown.
