Machida: Glover Teixeira Can Beat Jon Jones


“I believe Glover is the next champion. I don’t see anyone in the light heavyweight division to stop Glover Teixeira. Not even Jon Jones. We train together for a long time. To do well against him, you really, really need to know what you’re doing. He’s too strong for this division. He’s a heavyweight, and he’s durable. He will hurt you for five rounds.”

In tonight’s UFC Fight Night 28 main event Glover Teixeira will look to cement himself as a title challenger with a win over Ryan Bader.

His longtime training partner and former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, recently told MMAFighting.com that he believes Glover is the future of the 205 pound division and the man to beat Jon Jones.
