Glover Teixeira fans had some scary moments on Saturday, but following UFC Fight Night 73, their guy remains in the title shot mix…

Yes, not long into the headliner, Ovince Saint Preux had Teixeira in all sorts of trouble, after hurting him with a body kick and several, booming punches. Teixeira, to his credit, weathered the storm, and launched his comeback by going the wrestling route.

OSP continued to battle on and managed to get back to his feet more than once, but finally, in round three, he fell victim to a rear-naked-choke.

After the card, Teixeira spoke with UFC cameras backstage, and explained why he elected to take OSP to the mat. You can watch the interesting interview below.
