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.
