Not many fighters have requested matches with Glover Teixeira. The Brazilian improved to 2-0 inside the Octagon this past Saturday with a TKO victory over Fabio Maldonado at UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar.
Originally, Teixeira was scheduled to fight former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Jackson, however, pulled out of the bout after suffering a training injury.
The match was set to be the final one on Jackson's contract. Now, "Rampage" is letting it be known that he wants Teixeira.
UFC president Dana White replied back, posting, "sounds good bro." So, we'll see if Jackson-Teixeira gets lined up in the coming months.
