For the third time, Jeff Monson was expected to face Glover Teixeira at Bitetti Combat and pulled out. Jeff’s manager Alex Davis addresses the matter.
“Jeff sustained injuries in his match in Abu Dhabi and is unable to face an opponent of Glover’s caliber so soon,” says the manager, who plays down the organization’s responsibility in Monson dropping out.
“The situation with Jeff really is complicated. I’ve tried talking to him by email, but he doesn’t reply. I have to take action. He has to face Glover, if just because part of his purse was deposited ever since the event in Brasilia,” he adds.
