Glover Teixeira Says There’s No Bad Blood Between Him and Quinton Jackson
Glover Teixeira recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Quinton Jackson at UFC on FOX 6 and more. Check out the highlights:
On his UFC career to date: “Things are happening fast in the UFC now. It took me a while to get to the UFC, but I’m pretty happy with how things are going.”
On whether there is bad blood between himself and Quinton Jackson as rumored: “It’s just business. Quinton is a great a fighter. I loved to watch him fight back in the day. I still like to watch him fight. He’s a funny guy. I’m just going to go over there and take care of business.”
On trash-talking Jackson: “You know me. I don’t do that. I’ve got confidence. I’m going to go over there and put on a great fight for the fans and try to knock him out. It’s my opinion. It’s not going to change.”
On Chuck Liddell often swinging by to watch him spar and give advice: “Just having him watch me, that’s a big help, you know?
On his fight with Fabio Maldonado: “Maldonado was tough. I knew he was hard to put away. I knew it was going to be a tough fight. With the ground and pound, I could feel his nose cracking. I could feel like the bone breaking. I was like, ‘This is not going to stop.’ And he was still fighting back. Big heart, tough guy. But sometimes I wish the guys wouldn’t be so tough because of their health and everything.”
