Even though he is still new to the UFC roster, Glover Teixeira (18-2) feels that he has what it takes to win the light heavyweight from Jon Jones (17-1).
“There are a lot of tough guys, but I think I bring it to Jon Jones,” said Teixeira on MMA Interviews. “If they offered me the fight I would say yes, bring it to him and get that title.”
Teixeira won in his UFC debut earlier this year. He only needed two minutes to take home the submission. Even though he is on a 16 fight win streak, Teixeira knows he needs a few more wins before he gets into the championship picture.
“I’m not quite qualified to say something like that yet,” said Teixeira. “I have one fight in the UFC and have more to prove to myself.”
