Glover Teixeira likes his odds against UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones. (In fact, you may be surprised just how heavily he favors himself if they were to fight.) But knowing the champ is likely to fight Alexander Gustafsson next, Teixeira discussed what other matchups pique his interest.

I think the reason that he doesn't want to fight Machida is much the same as Anderson Silva's reason for not wanting to fight him. I also agree with him not wanting to fight Sonnen, I don't think Sonnen should be in the UFC anymore.

Honestly though, who does want to fight Machida?

Dude's style is a nightmare for anyone.

Macheetah's style is a nightmare??

The style of pseudo-attacking and running for your life, called karate, defines Lyota's "style."

To this day, I can't get enough stories of how the Japanese karatea talk about drinking their own piss in an effort to connect with their forgotten ancestors.

Yushin Okami is excluded of course.

Why should a guy, who's only recent losses have came at the hands of champions of their divisions, not be in the UFC anymore?

He's 0-4 in WEC/UFC title fights and has been finished in each title fight.

right, let's not have one of the best fighters in his division because he's lost to 2 of the top 3 p4p fighters in the world

Vitor Belfort also got finished by Silva and Jones, he should get cut too right?

So he's not a champion. Doesn't mean he should be totally axed. Plus, he beat Filho in what would have been a title fight if Filho didn't weigh in over.

He beat Filho in a non-title fight. When they fought for the WEC Middleweight Championship, Filho destroyed Sonnen. You're referring to their fight at WEC 36, I'm referring to their fight at WEC 31.

referring*

it as only a non-title fight because Filho missed weight, it was not a scheduled non title affair.
