Later on this evening (Wed., Sept. 4, 2013), in the main event of UFC Fight Night 28: "Teixeira vs. Bader" from the Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader will duke it out in a light heavyweight showcase pitting one top contender, the former, and an Ultimate Fighter winner hoping to attain that status.
Teixeira lets us know he has his eyes on the prize:
"I just want to be the baddest man on the planet. That's the motivation, that's why we're in this sport. I have a dream and it's to get the title. I want to prove to myself and to the fans and to the UFC that I am ready; I'm ready for the title."
But so does Bader, who you still can't count out:
"I've fought the best guys in the world and I have been for a long time. I'm more hungry now than I've ever been in my whole career. My ultimate goal is to get that belt."
Who will it be?
