Saturday night the UFC Vegas 13, a historic night for Glover teixeira, who now wants to go for the title. He himself liquidated Thiago Santos in the star, squeezing one of the best in the division.

With both of them leaving absolutely everything in the octagon, the veteran exhibited his technique intact.
«In my last five fights I had four finals, the best contenders. The last two guys are guys who made a decision with Jon Jones, and I was able to finish them off and put on a great fight. I wanted to end the fights to prove a point and I think that’s exactly what I’ve done all this time. It is for something that I am here and I want to reach the top », was what the legendary fighter began saying.
At the same time, Glover He recounted a detail that was crucial: “I could see all the blows. In the second round it was somewhat more noticeable. I could see he was getting weaker and I knew he was getting weaker in the third round too so I knew I was going to catch him. He was getting tired and he could see that from a distance. So I put even more pressure and went after him. I wanted to finish it as soon as possible. It was tough, I’m not going to lie. But then I saw him tired.
He will not lower his arms
“If it was ten more seconds, I sank into the choke, and it was deep. He heard the applause for the entire ten seconds and I got a little discouraged, but I squeezed it out a lot anyway. But it was ten more seconds. I know the strangulation was profound. He defended well in the fight and that also made him unable to finish it earlier. He is a great fighter, “added to his remarks, who wants to go for the Semi-Heavyweight title.
To close with his words, Glover teixeira He commented, “Right now, I just want to have a pizza and relax, okay? We’ll see what happens. I don’t want to make a decision about that right now to talk about fighting now. My face hurts. Let’s see what is happening now. I want to take a few days. I’ll see what happens after this. Everyone knows that I want to go for Jan Blachowicz’s belt and I think I deserve it.
