There’s no clear answer on who is the No. 1 contender in the UFC light heavyweight division. Glover Teixeira moves up in the rankings with his recent fourth win in a row for the promotion.
If Teixeira gets the chance inside the Octagon with champion Jon Jones, he’s almost positive that he leaves the victor.
“If the fight was today, I would have 99 percent chance to beat him,” said Teixeira to TATAME. “I’m ready. If we were to fight now, I’d fight.”
Sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson is thought to be the closest to a title shot, but nothing his confirmed by the UFC.
Jones is out after a nasty big toe injury in his UFC 159 win against Chael Sonnen.
