    Default Lyoto Machida: Jon Jones canít stop Glover Teixeira

    Jon Jones, the current champion, puts his title on the line against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 on Sept. 21, but none of them can match Teixeiraís talent, according to former UFC champion and training partner Lyoto Machida.

    "I believe Glover is the next champion," Machida told MMAFighting.com. "I donít see anyone in the light heavyweight division to stop Glover Teixeira. Not even Jon Jones."

    Teixeira made his UFC debut on May 2012, and has defeated four opponents in one year. He has finished 15 of his 21 wins in the first round, and Machida guarantees heís ready to fight five rounds.

    "We train together for a long time," he said. "To do well against him, you really, really need to know what youíre doing. Heís too strong for this division.

    I think machida must've missed Glovers fight tonight, as well as the Rampage fight. Glover isn't beating Jones or Gus, forget about it.

    Such as? Personally I'm not much of a Texeira fan at all, but a lot of fighters have said this about Glover. He seems to be the real deal, and there is no one except for Jones and maybe Gus that I see beating him. Even those guys I'm not so sure about.

    I'm pretty concerned about his chin and gas tank but thats about it. He's well rounded, and has killer instinct. I just dont know if he's good enough for Jones, it's a possibility though.

    You're concerned about his chin and gas tank then ask me such as? he's so over hyped it's not funny.
