[VIDEO] Glover Teixeira on Rampage: “I am Going to Knock Him Out”
STUDIO MMA, RIVERSIDE, CA – UFC light heavyweight prospect, Glover Teixeira, made a statement in his debut, dispatching Kyle Kingsbury in the opening round at UFC 146. Following his victory, Teixeira mentioned dream fights with former champions Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
After impressing in his debut, Teixeira was brought up as a possible opponent for “Shogun”. However, “Shogun” and his management team had no interest in fighting Teixeira. Instead Teixeira will now take on “Ramapage” at UFC 153 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Teixeira is currently in Los Angeles helping Lyoto Machida get ready for his bout this weekend against Ryan Bader at UFC on FOX 4.

I think Lyoto and Ryan Bader’s fight is going to be a good fight and great for Lyoto. I am betting a third round knockout for Lyoto Machida. I am going to do my camp in California. It is going to be half and half time in between here (Blackhouse MMA) and San Luis, Obispo with John Hackelman and I am bringing some guys from Brazil to help me out. Fighting him (Jackson) is great because he is a, you know, and idol of this sport. I am training hard man; I am going to knock him out.”
