Glover Teixeira Wiki Update Wiki

Teixeira is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt under Luigi Mondelli. Teixeira currently trains and instructs at The Pit with instructor John Hackleman, former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell, and also with UFC, WEC veteran and current DREAM fighter Antonio Banuelos. His background includes a variety of grappling and MMA tournaments: Grappler's Quest, NAGA, Sport Fight (where he was the light heavyweight champion). Under submission wrestling rules, he grappled well known fighters Jeff Monson and Brandon Vera. He won the 2009 Brazilian ADCC trials in the under 99 kg division and in the 2011 Brazilian ADCC trials he took the second place. Teixeira defeated future UFC and PRIDE veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou by KO on October 12, 2006 at WEC 24. Teixeira was featured in the second season opening episode of the MMA reality television series TapouT.

At UFC 146, Teixeira made his highly anticipated debut against Kyle Kingsbury. Teixeira put on a dominant performance en route to a 1st round submission victory at 1:53 into the fight. Due to the imposing nature of this showcase, many fighters have been apprehensive with regards to accepting a match up with the aforementioned Teixeira. Originally, his next bout was scheduled to be against former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. However, Jackson pulled out of the fight with an injury and he was replaced by Fabio Maldonado. Before he was slated to fight Maldonado, there were several reports that former UFC Light Heavyweight Champions Mauricio Shogun Rua and Rashad Evans had turned down the proposed opponent. Teixeira would go on to defeat Maldonado in vicious fashion with a TKO coming by way of a doctor's stoppage following the conclusion of the 2nd round.


Glover's next fight would come against former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson on UFC on FOX 6. Teixeira would go on to win by unanimous decision. He would keep his winning streak alive when he defeated James Te Huna at UFC 160 winning the Submission of the Night in the process for his first round finish. At UFC Fight Night 28, Teixeira would go on to defeat Ryan Bader by first round knockout en route to extending his win streak to 20 fights.


Texeira's winning streak would end when he faced Jon Jones for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 172. Texeira was unable to mount any significant offense against Jones and lost the title bout by unanimous decision.
