The UFC reportedly is planning to book Glover Teixeira/Ryan Bader and Jacare Souza/Yushin Okami for their September 4th Fox Sports 1 event in Brazil.

I think Teixeira/Bader will look a lot like Chuck vs any wrestler he fought in his prime. If they are going to match him up against someone who isn't on any kind of win streak like he is on, I would have rather seen him matched up with Wanderlei or Thiago Silva. I'll pick him to get the KO/TKO in the first or second round.

I'll also take Jacare to get a sub in the first or second.

I love the Jacare/Okami fight, it's just tough to say how it could go. I can't remember the last time Okami was even close to getting submitted and he's never been subbed in his career, and it's almost certain Jacare will test him so it'll be interesting to see they're game plans going in.

Teixeira/Bader is alright. I don't see Glover having much trouble with Bader and I was hoping they'd match him up with Rashad or maybe Rogerio even though I doubt they would fight each other, it just makes more sense to me.

I'm really not sure on Jacare/Okami. I do like the fight quite a bit

Teixeira should handle Bader in most facets of the fight so I see Bader constantly pressuring and pushing him against the cage. I still think Glover can handle it

A step down for Glover.

Great fights for Brazil. Wish they would have added one for the Brazil ppv. These days the free cards are better than the ppv. Ufc wonders why ppv rates decline
