Glover Teixeira remains a force to be reckoned with in the light heavyweight division, now on his ninth win in a row following his fight against Daniel Tabera at last Saturday’s Bitetti Combat 8 show. And with the solid results comes a peculiar difficulty for the promoters: finding Glover opponents.
“I was going to fight a Dutch fighter. He agreed to the fight and then backed out at the last minute. In Canada, my opponent said he wouldn’t put his title on the line against me, saying my record isn’t good enough, despite all my wins. But someone for me to fight will appear,” he laments.
Having had a year of solid results in MMA, now the fighter is looking to his other passion, Jiu-Jitsu. Glover says he loves the ADCC, the last event of which he qualified for at the Brazilian tryouts without a single point scored against him.
Furthermore, in the video (in Portuguese) below, the black belt comments on the difficulty he is having in getting his US visa.
“Look, if it’s decent like what Bitetti offers, I’ll fight in Brazil. But my dream is to fight in the UFC, I want to fight where I can be number one in the world.”
