Next month Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira will throw-down for the UFC light-heavyweight title.
No one knows who is going to win this pivotal title fight, but UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, has an idea and it comes in the form of his former Ruas Vale-Tudo teammate, Glover Teixeira.
“I’m sure, I have no doubt in Glover’s victory. He’s a very cool guy and has a lot of talent in his wrestling and ground game. I’m sure he will be a very tough challenge for Jon Jones. Jon can think he is superior but certainly if Glover hit him with his fist the fight can end.”
“I’m a disciple of them, all I learned about kickboxing and muay thai was with them, this is the school from where I came. I trained a lot with Marco and also with Pedro, the guy that I always tried to emulate, the low kicks are almost the same watching Marco, me or Pedro. I’m one more in the Ruas Vale-Tudo family. Marco was a guy that marked MMA, he did this transition of everybody training everything, that is thanks to him.”
