Glover Teixeira UFC


Glover Teixeira’s UFC journey started in the summer of 2012. At UFC 146, he made his debut by forcing his opponent, Kyle Kingsbury, to tap out to an arm-triangle choke in just 1:53 minutes of the first round. His next notable fight was with the former UFC Light heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson at UFC on Fox 6, which he won via unanimous decision.


Teixeira’s performance and ability to outwrestle the former Champion landed him in a match with Ryan Bader at UFC 160. The fight didn’t take place due to Bader pulling out and Teixeira faced James te Huna at the event instead. In just 2:38 minutes of the first round, Teixeira forced Huna to submit to the guillotine choke and went on to win the ‘Submission of the Night’ award. He finally faced Bader at UFC Fight Night 28, where he won via TKO in the first round. With the win, Teixeira earned the ‘Knockout of the Night’ award and became the #1 contender for the UFC Light heavyweight Championship.


Glover Teixeira suffered his first loss in UFC when he collided with Jon Jones at UFC 172. He bounced back soon and UFC Fight Night 73 saw him winning his first ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus for his match with Ovince Saint Preux. After a lot of speculations, Teixeira faced Rashad Evans at the UFC on Fox 19 event and his first-round victory got him the ‘Performance of the Night’ award.


At UFC Fight Night 109, Alexander Gustafsson handed Teixeira with another loss but their clash got credited with the ‘Fight of the Night’ honor. His second ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus award came at the expense of Ion Cutelaba, who he defeated via a rear-naked choke in the second round at UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs Hermansson.
