A brotherly mood settled in behind the scenes following UFC on Fox 6.
At the post-fight press conference that followed the Jan. 26 event in Chicago, Glover Teixeira revealed that he’s a fan of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and also underscored the good work he carried out in the cage.
“It was a great fight. Rampage is a legend of the sport and I’m glad to have gone there and fought him,” Teixeira said during the presser on Saturday night. “I fought standing, took him down, did a bit of everything, and I feel great about it.”
The black belt, who with the fight notched his 18th win in a row, was congratulated on his performance from all sides, even by Rampage, who joins the crowd rooting for Glover’s ascension to take him to the top of the light-heavyweight ranks.
“Now I’m your fan. Go get the belt,” the former champion of the division told Teixeira after the fight.
Now we’ll just have to wait and see how the rest of the race to the belt currently held by Jon Jones goes. And there’s no lack of people in line for their crack at it.
