Glover Teixeira on Fabio Maldonado: "He's Not Human"

Glover Teixeira was expected to come out, knock Fabio Maldonado out and move on Saturday at UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar. Teixeira did that, but it didn't come easy.

Teixeira, who finally made his UFC debut earlier this year, earned a TKO victory over Maldonado after the doctor called a stop to the bout. Teixeira landed several huge shots to the face of Maldonado, causing plenty of damage.

"This guy, he is not human," said Teixeira, who improved to 18-2 overall. "I felt I could knock him out, but this guy got knocked down (and wouldn't stop). He's not human."

Teixeira has now won 17 consecutive fights, adding Maldonado to a list that includes Kyle Kingsbury, Ricco Rodriguez and Marvin Eastman.

Maldonado (18-6) accepted this fight after former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson was forced out with an injury. He has now lost three straight inside the Octagon.
