Glover Teixeira's rise through the ranks of the light heavyweight division was supposed to continue tonight (Sat., May 25, 2013) on the main card of the UFC 160: "Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2" pay-per-view (PPV) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That's exactly what happened.
Te Huna opened by pushing forward with hard punches and trying to sell out to get the knockout. Really, he was fighting like he knew the longer he was in the cage with Glover, the lower his chances of winning the fight.
Sure enough, Teixeira got his hands on him, locked in a tight guillotine, and tapped Te Huna within the very first round. It was yet another impressive performance for the Brazilian, who has now won 19 fights in a row.
Almost time for a title shot?
