Glover Teixeira ‘Upset’ He Is Not Facing ‘Rampage’ Jackson Later This Year

Glover Teixeira made the most of his UFC debut, storming through Kyle Kingsbury earlier this year.

After visa issues kept him out of the UFC for several years, Teixeira was anxious to get right back inside the Octagon.

However, after news of Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s exit from a planned October encounter with Teixeira was announced Tuesday, the Brazilian expressed his anger via Twitter.

The UFC has yet to make any official announcement, as it appears they are working to secure a replacement for Jackson to face Teixeira.

Fabio Maldonado has expressed interest in facing Teixeira in an all-Brazilian battle.
