Glover Teixeira vs. Phil Davis In The Works For UFC 179

1

According to sources in Brazil, top-ranked UFC Light Heavyweight contender and recent title challenger Glover Teixeira (23-5) has verbally agreed to a fight with fellow top-ranked 205-pound contender Phil Davis (12-2) at UFC 179.

Teixeira is coming off a one-sided loss to current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones in his last fight at UFC 172. Prior to that, he was riding one of the longest undefeated streaks among the active UFC roster.

Davis is coming off a loss in his last fight as well, as he surprisingly lost on the same card to the newly emerging UFC Light Heavyweight contender Anthony Johnson.

UFC 179 takes place on October 25th at the Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and features a main event of Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes for the UFC Featherweight Championship.
