Anthony Johnson-Glover Teixeira Contest Now Takes Place At UFC 202

Officials have moved the Anthony Johnson-Glover Teixeira light heavyweight title-eliminator to UFC 202, according to a report by MMAjunkie.

The two were originally scheduled for next month and UFC on FOX 20, but family issues forced Johnson out.

Johnson (21-5) has posted a 12-5 Octagon mark over two stints with the promotion, but he has found the majority of his success since deciding on 205 pounds. “Rumble” has picked up wins over Jimi Manuwa and Ryan Bader since a loss to current champion Daniel Cormier.

Teixeira (25-4) is on a three-fight win streak and 8-2 with the UFC overall, including a victory over Rashad Evans. The Brazilian lost via decision to Jon Jones back in 2014 for the belt.

UFC 202 takes place August 20 from Las Vegas and features a rematch between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor.
