Glover Teixeira The Man To Beat Jon Jones, Says Coach


“I think Jon Jones is great. I think anyone’s beatable. A couple of people have come close, maybe if that armbar was a little better from Vitor, or if Lyoto stayed a little more aggressive with his punches, anybody can get beat. If anybody could hit him in the chin just right that would be one thing. Vitor came pretty close, caught him in a submission. I think Glover can beat anyone because he has such hard hitting that that could change any aspect of any fight ’cause he has that one-punch knockout power.

“Anyone can knock anyone out if they get hit just right, but some people just have that one-punch knockout power and its easier for them to knock people out. And then, he’s a really good wrestler, has unbelievable jiu jitsu, black belt and multiple tournament winner. To top it off he’s a beast when it comes to conditioning. He’s going to be a hard guy to beat, but Jon Jones is as well. It would definitely be an interesting match up and I think Glover would love to take that fight.”

John Hackleman, one of the many people behind the fast rising Glover Teixeira, tells MMA Fight Corner that he believes the Brazilian top contender is the man to beat Jon Jones.

Agree?
