What a win for Teixeira after many years on the road as a pro fighter, hopefully age is just a number after all, Saint Denis had the performance of the year for me, Dana White needs to pay him backstage at least 200k would be cool..... Maybe unrealistic but deserved

269 would make sense. I believe they have room for one more fight. Could be a good main card fight to get gamrot some exposure
