Glover Teixeira Doesn't Want to Wait Around for a Jones-Gustafsson Rematch

Glover Teixeira extended his unbeaten streak to 19 fights with a first-round submission victory over James Te Huna at UFC 160 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Fighting in front of his hero, Mike Tyson, Teixeira poured on the pressure from the opening bell, looking for the single-leg takedown before rocking Te Huna with a right hand.

Teixeira, a BJJ black belt, worked the Australian resident to the mat before wrestling his way into guard. Te Huna was able to get back to his feet, but Texeira took the initiative and locked in the head and arm of Te Huna before taking him to the mat again, forcing the tapout at 2:38 of round one.

“I couldn't be happier. Mike Tyson was here,” Teixeira said post-fight. “I can't believe it, I'm going to cry right now.”

For Teixeira, the victory puts him on the short list of names in contention for a shot at UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.
