Jon Jones Not Very Impressed With Glover Teixeira’s Performance

Glover Teixeira defeated Ryan Bader last night by TKO at 2:55 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 28. After the card had ended, the UFC confirmed that Teixeira would face the winner of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. That fight takes place in 16 days at UFC 165 in Toronto.

During the post-fight interview with Jon Anik, Teixeira wasn’t happy with his performance and knows their is room for improvement.

“To tell you the truth, I wasn’t happy with this fight,” Teixeira said immediately after the fight. “I was disappointed he was able to knock me down. But I’m telling you, this belt is going to be mine. It doesn’t matter if it’s Jon Jones or Gustafsson. It’s mine.”

It doesn’t seem like the light heavyweight kingpin wasn’t very impressed with Teixeira’s performance.


Jones and Texieira have two common opponents in Bader and Rampage Jackson. The champion defeated Bader by submission in the second round at UFC 126 in February of 2011 and Jackson by submission in the fourth round at UFC 135 in September of 2011.

Teixeira defeated Jackson by unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 6 in February and the first round stoppage of Bader last night.

Only time will tell if these two will square off.
