    It is good, but I think that the wake up call for him should have been that punch that Maldonado threw that rocked him.

    I like Teixeira, but I can not see how he would beat Jones.

    Teixeira: "I was overconfident, knockdown was wake-up call"

    That punch made Teixeira feel dizzy for an instant but he not only recovered, he also found an opening to connect an overhand followed by left hook that put the American down. Herb Dean then interrupted the flurry of punches and finished the bout.

    “I know exactly which strike hit me, it was a left punch. I suffered a knockdown and I knew he would come at me to try to finish the fight, but I was very well prepared and managed to connect where he was uncovered,” Teixeira says.

    “It is hard to say, but I took a knockdown and wasn’t happy with my fight. But I want UFC belt and I will be back more focused, there won’t the kind of mistakes I committed here. This belt is going to be mine against Jon Jones or Alexander Gustafsson.

    “I think I had an excess of confidence but this knockdown was like a wake-up call.”
