    Arrow After three men called him out, UFC 160's Glover Teixeira hopes Jon Jones next

    After three men called him out, UFC 160's Glover Teixeira hopes Jon Jones next | News
    "Te Huna is a fighter, and he's coming up," Teixeira said. "For him, if he beats me, it's a good opportunity for him. I don't mind that. Maldonado asked to fight me. 'Rampage' asked to fight me. It doesn't matter, man. I'm just going to go there and do my job.

    "I hope Jon Jones picks me next."

    Teixeira and Te Huna meet on the main card of Saturday's UFC 160 event, which takes place at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and airs on pay-per-view. Both fighters are heavy-handed knockout artists, and the fight could prove an entertaining slugfest. Of course, Teixeira would also seem to have the option of bringing the fight to the floor and seeking success in the grappling game.

    Teixeira didn't want to reveal his strategy, of course, but he did admit that it's in Te Huna's best interest to be ready for all aspects of the sport.

    "I'm going to feel the fight," Teixeira said. "I'm ready for everywhere. I'm training a lot in jiu-jitsu, wrestling, striking. Like I said with 'Rampage,' it's his job to stop me. Chuck Liddell is my mentor, and he didn't like people to take him down, so he worked on defending the takedown. I'm ready for everything.

    "I'm going to step in the middle of the octagon and pressure, and when I see the opening – whether it's a right hand, a left hand or a takedown – I'll take it."

    Teixeira currently sits at No. 7 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com light-heavyweight rankings, while Te Huna clocks in at No. 15. The 33-year-old Brazilian boasts a a incredible 18-fight win streak, though just three of those have come in the UFC after visa issues left him unable to compete outside of his native Brazil for several years.

    As such, Teixeira realizes he's a little behind some of his fellow contenders in terms of octagon bragging rights. Still, his stock is rising, and he's not going to put limits on what victory could potentially bring. If someone else is going to ask for a scrap, it might as well be the champ.

    "I don't think I've done enough to earn a title shot," Teixeira said. "I think I do have to fight more. But if Dana White asks me if I'm ready, I'll say, 'Yes, I am. I'm ready.'"
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Goose, tex, Machida and maybe Lil Nog if he looks great against Shogun. And then the often rumored fight with Silva. Hope that toe heels quick, there's a pretty long line forming to fight Bones

    Goose and depending on how Tex looks against Te Huna this weekend are the only fights that interest me outside of the superfight with Silva.

    What was Ryan Bader's injury that kept him from fighting Tex?
