“It pisses me off that everyone is overlooking me. He’s talking about a title shot, other people are talking about a title shot. Fans are saying I don’t have a chance and how good the fight is going to be between [Teixeira] and Jones. But he has a tough fight ahead of him on Sept. 4 and I’m looking to spoil all their plans. UFC is saying that he gets the next title shot with an impressive win. A lot of people are going to be upset on Sept. 4. I’m going to come out and take everything away from them.”
“He’s had his long win streak. But he’s had this long win streak outside the UFC. If you look at his record, who has he fought? If you look at our past six, seven fights and put them side by side, I’ve definitely fought much tougher guys. His hype is deserved because he has been winning, he’s undefeated in UFC and all that, but he hasn’t fought the right brand of people. If he fights the right brand of people he’s definitely going to lose, and his night [to face the right brand of opposition] is the night we’re fighting.”
In tonight’s main event all eyes will be on Glover Teixeira.
Glover is expected to win and then challenge Jon Jones for the UFC light-heavyweight title.
Standing opposite will be TUF winner, Ryan Bader, who recently told ESPN that he is pissed he’s being overlooked and hopes to derail all this title talk.
