Glover Teixeira: You must be prepared for everything in the UFC

It’s fight week, and once again MMA H.E.A.T. has provided us with some excellent insight into this weekend’s featured fighters. Karyn Bryant recently sat down to talk with rising Light Heavyweight Glover Teixeira, who is set to face the legendary Rampage Jackson on Saturday night.

Teixeira talks about his fight with Rampage, noting that he has been training for all the disciplines of martial arts. He knows that Rampage thinks Teixeira will only try to take him down and hold him down. However, Teixeira believes that you must be ready for anything when you step into the Octagon.

Glover Teixeira appears very calm and collected heading into his bout as Rampage’s last UFC opponent ever. He has a great training team in place with partners like Chuck Liddell and Lyoto Machida. Teixeira seems motivated and ready to rise to the top, can the same be said for his infamous opponent?

    Glover is a classy dude, acts very professional, and is a well-rounded threat in the LHW division……the exact opposite of Rampage……

    I also likeTeixeira a lot as well, very strong very well rounded and always tries to take your head off
    Having said that, i have noticed a tendency of his to get caught with hard punches to the face.This was evident in the Maldonado fight.
    I do believe that Maldonado is a better boxer than Rampage but i consider Rampage more dangerous
    What i mean is ,that he is not very elusive as a fighter like Bones or Lyoto and that can be dangerous and prove costly against Rampage if he gets caught
    We ' ll see how it goes though…
    It will be an exciting fight IMO
