Teixeira and Jackson are set to meet at UFC 153 from Brazil, providing Teixeira a chance to compete in his native country.
After having visa issues keep him from the UFC, Teixeira made his debut earlier this year, dominating Kyle Kingsbury and earning his 16th consecutive victory.
“I’m going out with him in the standup,” said Teixeira, during a recent interview with Sherdog. “I have to be smart and not stand still.”
Jackson will be making the final appearance in the UFC on his current contract, though UFC president Dana White did mention recently that you never know how “Rampage” is going to act one day to the next.
