UFC light heavyweight Glover Teixeira may have only had two fights inside the Octagon, but company president Dana White has already been impressed with what he has seen thus far from the Brazilian.

Teixeira made his UFC debut at UFC 146 in May, where he choked out Kyle Kingsbury in the second round. He followed that up with a TKO stoppage on Saturday night against fellow Brazilian Fabio Maldonado at UFC 153 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil...

Rashad or winner of Shogun/Gus. Good way to fast track him to a title shot to keep the division moving and the contenders fresh.

Could not agree more...I personally think someone who is fast and can wrestle will beat Glover....Rashad Evans

This, except Gustaffson will also beat the shit out of Teixeira. Dont get your hopes up guys, 5-0 Melvin Guillard is still just Melvin Guillard.

Lets see Glover gas like that against Mr Wonderful after a single round. He would be teabagged into submission.

Gotta love Teixeira. He is a gamer and comes to fight. He wants to finish fights and goes balls to the walls to try... glover vs shogun might be more of a slugfest than shogun/hendo

Yeah I hope Shogun shows up at his best and gets past Gustaffson, and we get to see a healthy Shogun fight Glover, I still think Shogun wins a five rounder, but I don't think he has that fire anymore.

his chin is a little suspect that may be his one weakness a fast guy could hit him enough times before he can react.

Check his cardio... thats why his chin gave.

People mistake pushing when tired as not being tired. He was exhausted in 1 round.
