Prediction: correct Teixeira   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 2  

glover has gotten dragged around at times, but he can also wrestle a little bit so i think that will nullify misha's strengths a bit. glover should have a big power advantage on the feet.

I don't give Glover much chance here, I know a few people have chosen him because those heavy hands. And Misha got clipped last time out against Volkan, but Miesha should control this fight. Submission imo

Prediction: correct Teixeira   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 1  

Glover is the superior fighter in nearly all regards aside from age. I think people somehow interpreted the Gustaffsson fight as Glover being washed up, but IIRC Glover had his moments and survived an unbelievable beating in the realm Gus is strongest at, and Gus is at least 6x the fighter Misha is. Glover's grappling is far too elite for Misha to implement a wrestle **** top elbow game, and his striking is too powerful and seasoned to be run through. I think Glover is going to take the path of the Vet who see's a young guy who is less technical and has an inferior chin, he will walk him down, put pressure and really try to lay hands on Misha early. If that doesn't KO Misha he will then play the game, but I think we see Glover try and blow the doors off Misha.

Glover sure got tagged in the feet in this one. It's his ecperience that won him this one.

He gets hit a lot early in pretty much every fight then adjust,hell even Ryan Bader almost ko'd him.He was getting tagged though,way worse than normal but Cirkunov I think threw him off with his accuracy and how much distance he could cover quickly.
