Teixeira: I will finish Davis before the end of the third round!
UFC 179 includes the featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes, while Glover Teixeira and Phil Davis will fight in the co-main event.
In this match Glover Teixeira (22-3) will have a support of his Brazilian fans but he does not believe it will affect the result. He especially does not believe it will go to judges’ decision. The only one concerned about the judges is Phil Davis (12-2) who, despite his fears, already defeated Lyoto Machida in Brazil via unanimous decision.
However, the Brazilian fighter has a solution which could help the judges:
“I will make it easy for everybody so Davis does not have to worry. I will finish the fight before the end of the round”, stated Glover Teixeira.
UFC 179 will take place this weekend (Sunday 3 AM CET) with live broadcast o Fight Channel PPV.
