This Wednesday (13th), Glover Teixeira took a big step towards a future light heavyweight title fight (up to 93kg.). After running over Anthony Smith in the main fight of UFC Smith x Teixeira , the Brazilian, who returned to the top 5 of the category, prefers not to choose his opponent for the next confrontation. At a press conference after the show, with the participation of SUPER LUTAS , the miner spoke about the subject.
“Anyone (opponent), man. Anyone at the top of the division, I will love it ”, said the Brazilian.
Asked if he would be willing to repeat last year’s feat, when the Brazilian climbed into the octagon on three occasions, the fighter said the situation could be repeated. Glover, however, said he plans to rest before making any decision.
“It is a little difficult (to do three fights) with this pandemic and everything. We’ll see how it goes, but I’ll check my hand, because it’s really swollen. I do not know what happened. I hope it is nothing serious. Of course. Who knows three fights? I’m going to take a break now and ‘fall in’ in training, ”concluded the miner.
The victory over Smith confirmed Teixeira’s good phase in the Ultimate. With the new positive result, now the 40-year-old Brazilian has four victories in a row.
