Glover Teixeira kicks Ricco Rodriguez’s head off

Ricco Rodriguez gets taken out by Glover Teixeira. This finish is extra sweet because it was also for a good cause or something:

Promoted by the Department of Health and the State Government of Rio de Janeiro, the event MMA Contra a Dengue (MMA Against Dengue) brought the proposal of educate the public to the dangers of contracting the disease, but also helped to spread even more MMA in Brazil.

Teixeira is currently stuck in Brazil over ‘visa issues’, which is a pretty unfortunate situation for people who wanna see him in the UFC and the Brazilian fighters who have to face him in the meantime. He’s now 5-0 this year and 18-2 overall. Let’s hope he can manage to get himself international sooner or later. If it’s a paperwork issue, it’s just a matter of time. If he’s suspected of murdering a hooker in Sao Paolo … it might take a bit longer.

    Fuck a sloppy head-kick, let’s hear it for ring girls with curves.

    At what point does Teixeira stop being a prospect? Dude’s been “on the verge of going big” for about five years.

    I’ve heard Glover’s name forever and assumed he was a veteran journeyman. Ricco needs to get to 205

    Ricardo Arona would be pleased about this, if he wasn’t too busy staring at himself in a mirror somewhere in southern Rio

    There’s loads of Brazilians out there with decent records and decent performances that have never broken through. Glover is pretty much a perfect example of this. Don’t think he’d last longer than 2 years in the middle of the UFC LHW pack but I’m sure he’d take out some of the trash lower down
