At 41, Glover Teixeira defeated Thiago Santos at UFC Vegas 13 and goes for the title

At UFC Vegas 13 that was lived this Saturday night, Glover teixeira liquidated Thiago Santos and just look ahead. In one of the best crossings of the year, the two Brazilians of equal stature exploded the Apex cage in Nevada. It only lasted three rounds out of five, but they were truly to remember. With both of them leaving absolutely everything in the octagon, it was certainly one of the performances of the night.

After nearly getting knocked out in the first round, Glover teixeira was able to recompose himself and ended up subjecting Thiago Santos in the third round. With very good shots on the part of both and, with a heart that did not let them give up, the most veteran ended up taking the fight. At 41 years of age, the winner showed that he is at his best and wants to go again for the Light Heavyweight title, which belongs to Jan Blachowicz.

The sayings in the previous

“He is good and would reach the best, for sure. He is a good fighter, smart, but the difference in weight counts. I know, because I train with heavy weights and it’s difficult. Fatigue and pressure are different ”, was what he began by saying Glover teixeira, who later also added: «It won’t be easy at all with Thiago (Saints), is one of the best in the division. Without a doubt, it will be a great fight.

On the other hand, Thiago Santos summarized: “Glover he is a very experienced person. He’s got quite a few fights, he’s been through everything in the Octagon. I think he will use his experience. He will try to find gaps, see where is the best stage to fight, be it standing or on the ground. I think the fight is going to be very interesting. Not only is it going to be standing up, but it also doesn’t mean that Glover is going to start the fight trying to get me to the mat. I think he is going to feel the fight, he is going to see where the best for him is ”.
