Ferreira locked in a guillotine choke in the second round that forced Teixeira to tap out after a back-and-forth opener. The show is currently airing on TUF.tv, with plans for a FUEL TV run later this year.
The win moves Ferreira one step closer, while keeping Team Silva winless in the tournament brackets. The two coaches are scheduled to face off, likely in the main event now, at UFC 147 later this year.
