Glover Teixera recently (5-2) recently appeared on an episode of tapout featuring his quick KO victory of Jorge Oliveria.

Glover Teixera is best remembered for KO's Soko in the WEC, and as Chuck Liddels longtime training partner.

Glover Teixera was rumored to appear on the UFC's next installment of the Ultimate Fighter, but it looks as if he will be skipping that route, signing a contract with the UFC...

I like this. He looks to be a great up and comer, and I think could make a splash in the UFC. First fight a rematch with Soko?

A fight with Soko would be nice, but I hope he would get a fight with Houston Alexander or James Irvin or maybe Bonnar

I think the perfect PPV style matchup for him will be against Luis Cane.

In Fact, I would prolly match him up with James Irvin as his first fight, then the looser of the Cane/Soko match...then later against the winner.

Awesome, kind of weird for such a decorated grappler to have won all his fights via KO. Although I think he has a strong background in Hawian Kenpo. He knocked Soku out in under two minutes.

It's a good thing he didn't go on the show, well for the other fighters because he would have torched them all.

I think the LHW division will be hitting the cutting room floor very often. I mean they had to cut Nakamura just to bring Glover in. Lambert dropped down. the division is just too stacked.
