Glover Teixeira finally seems to be heading to the UFC. The light heavyweight prospect has not lost since his 2005 bout with Ed Herman. MMAJunkie reports the Brazilian fighter will make his debut in early summer.
Teixeira is probably best-known for his appearance on the second season of TapouT where he appeared in an episode featuring fighters from The Pit.
Teixeira was expected to make his UFC debut years ago but visa issues kept him out of the US for several years. The issues led him from moving from The Pit to Blackhouse’s Brazil location.
After resolving his visa issues this past December, Teixeira is looking to continue his winning ways in the UFC with the help of his old and new teams.
The Brazilian fighter combines powerful boxing with black belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has only seen a decision three times in nineteen fights.
