With Win Over Bader, Teixeira Next For Title Shot

With Lyoto Machida losing his fight against Phil Davis last weekend, the UFC can now push another fighter in the former champions number one contender slot.

That man is apparently, Chuck Liddell protegé, Glover Teixeira.

According to UFC executive, Marshall Zelaznik, if Glover can beat Ryan Bader impressively in their scheduled September 4th bout he will get a chance to face the winner of Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson.

Here’s the official announcement:

    I’d love to see Bader KO this dude. Don’t think it will happen. Glover probably wins this, but he has little to no chance of beating Jones. Jonesy will power him down and feed him elbows until the ref pulls him off. But I’m rooting for Bader to win…GO USA and especially GO USA WRESTLING!!!!

    Surely announcing that Fighter A will receive a title shot with a win over Fighter B, but not vice versa, is a surefire way to guarantee Fighter B gets the win??
