Now we up in the big leagues

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has signed top light heavyweight prospect Glover Teixeira (17-2). The Brazilian mauler is currently on a fifteen fight win streak that includes notable wins over former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez, Marvin Eastman and Sokoudjou.

The staggering part is that regardless of being a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, he has 11 knockouts.

Teixera is a member of 'The Pit' which is the former camp for former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell and led by his famed trainer John Hackleman.

Does this excite you Maniac's?
