Ryan Bader battling Glover Teixeira at UFC on FS 3

Ryan Bader battling Glover Teixeira at UFC on FS 3

UFC light heavyweight Glover Teixeira has faced a number of notable opponents throughout his career and come out on top against a plethora of styles as a result. However, despite more than twenty tilts to his credit, he’s never locked horns with a high-level wrestler.

That will change this fall when Teixeira takes on Ryan Bader at UFC on FS 3. Porto do Vale Tudo was first to report the fight. The two were scheduled to square off last month before Bader was forced out of the duel due to injury.

Bader holds an overall record of 14-3 with past success against opponents including Vinny Magalhaes, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Keith Jardine, and Quinton Jackson. We last seen submitting Vladimir Matyushenko in the bout’s opening round, his third win in four fights.

The 21-2 Teixeira is a top contender with a 4-0 mark inside the Octagon. All but three of his wins have featured some form of finish.

UFC on FS 3 is scheduled for September 4 in Brazil. Other scheduled scraps include Jussier Formiga-Joseph Benavidez and Ronaldo Souza-Yushin Okami.

    This should be another good test for Glover and a good one for Bader as well. Hope to see Bader derail the Teixeira hype right here with a solid win.

    Can’t say I think Bader will win, fanoftna33, but I’m glad to see Glover tested against a good wrestler before he challenges for the title.

  • Dufresne says:

    Someone better set Bader’s alarm clock. I like the guy, but I think he’s over hyped in a big way.
