Glover Teixeira vs. Phil Davis full fight video preview: UFC 179

Glover Teixeira, fresh off his light heavyweight title loss to Jon Jones, will co-main event tonight's (Sat., Oct. 25, 2014) UFC 179: "Aldo vs. Mendes 2" pay-per-view (PPV) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, against Phil Davis, himself coming off a decisive defeat to Anthony Johnson. Who gets back on the hog?


"Phil Davis has very good cardio. If I let this fight go to decision, I guess that's his strongest point. He's like outpoint guys over here, you know, takedowns, working punches over there. I can't let that happen. I want to knock this guy out, I want to finish him. I'm going to push the KO in this fight and I think I have a nice advantage of my feet."


"You definitely want to look to fight guys who are higher ranked than you. He's ranked number four, I'm ranked number six. That's fine. Let's do it. I know I can beat anyone if I'm healthy, if I'm trained right, and if I employ the right game plan. I think he has a great skill set and he's been very successful with it. But I think we match up well. It all depends on who will be able to literally and figuratively get to the punch first." will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 179 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, and then the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the PPV start time at 10 p.m. ET.
