Bio

Glover Teixeira was born in Brazil on October 28th, in 1979. At 20 years old he moved to the United States and 3 years later made his professional MMA debut. The 2nd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was surprisingly knocked out in the first round of his MMA debut.

After winning 15 straight fights with only one of those fights going the distance, Teixeira signed with the UFC in 2012. His winning streak was at 20 in a row when he was defeated by then UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Teixeira lost his next fight too, this time to Phil Davis, but rebounded to win his next two fights. After scoring a knockout win at UFC Fight Night 77, Teixeira was ranked 4th in the UFC’s light heavyweight division and likely a win away from a second title shot.
