Since joining the UFC ranks in April of 2013, “OSP” has gone an impressive 6-1, with his lone loss coming to Ryan Bader via decision.
Meanwhile, former UFC title challenger Glover Teixeira (22-4 MMA) will be looking to get back on track when he faces Saint Preux later this summer. Teixeira has suffered back-to-back losses in his most recent efforts, dropping decisions to Jon Jones and Phil Davis respectively. Prior to the setbacks, Glover had put together an amazing 20-fight win streak, which included 5 victories under the UFC banner.
