After having his lengthy winning streak snapped at the hands of the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter, Glover Teixeira appears to have a stiff test on his hands to get back on track.

According to a report from Brazil’s Combate news site, Teixeira (22-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC) has verbally agreed to fight Phil Davis (12-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) this fall, potentially at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro. Combate cited sources close to the UFC, but the promotion has not yet announced the fight.

The UFC 179 pay-per-view is set for Oct. 25 at Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio. The event currently has just one bout set – a featherweight title headliner between champ Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes, a rematch from their UFC 142 fight, which also took place in Rio.

I'm striving desperately to think of a single reason why I don't want to skip the rest of summer and go straight to the fall.
In my mind this also confirms rumble vs osp/bader

This fight probably sends somebody to middleweight with a series of excuses

Exactly what I was thinking when I saw this announcement. I'm okay with it too.

If Davis cannot TD Texeira it should be a repeat of Davis vs Johnson, maybe worse.

Tex knocks out Davis, or Davis loses in 15 minutes by running.
