Glover Teixeira Always Remains Ready To Fight, Meets ‘Rampage’ Jackson At UFC On Fox 6

Glover Teixeira knows he has a tremendous opportunity come UFC on Fox 6 when he steps inside the Octagon against former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

After waiting several years to enter the U.S. and compete for the UFC, Teixeira plans to make sure he is always ready to fight when the promotion comes calling. The Teixeira-Jackson bout is set as the co-main event next Saturday night from Chicago.

“I train for everything,” said Teixeira, during a recent interview with MMA Interviews. “If the opponent is changed, I have to be ready.”

Jackson (32-10) pulled out of a planned meeting with Teixeira (19-2) in late 2012 due to an injury. Instead, Teixeira faced Fabio Maldonado, earning his second stoppage win since joining the promotion.

“Being professional in the sport is being ready for everything,” Teixeira said. “Injuries happen because we train so hard. We have to be ready to fight anybody out there.”

Teixeira is currently on a 17-fight win streak, but will be facing his toughest competition in Jackson. “Rampage” hasn’t fought since early 2012 when he lost to Ryan Bader, and has stated this will likely be his final fight inside the Octagon.
