As UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones critiqued on Twitter after the bout — Ryan Bader rushed in hastily when he smelled blood. Unfortunately for him, this gave a ‘rocked’ Glover Teixeira the perfect opening to capitalize. Capitalize he did, landing a beautifully placed right on the chin of the overzealous Bader rushing in, and following up with textbook ground-and-pound. Herb Dean calls the fight early in the first.
The victory marks Teixeira’s 20th straight victory, with 18 by finish, leaving controversy as to when will Teixeira get his shot? Because of the near loss, UFC execs are questioning if the slugger will in fact be next inline. Fair? You let us know.
