UFC 160 Results: Glover Teixeira Submits James Te Huna in First Round


After two thrilling fights in the lightweight division, it was time for the light-heavyweights to show off their skills. One of the top 205-pounders in the world, No. 4 ranked Glover Teixeira, took on James Te Huna as Teixeira looked to make an even bigger impact in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division. With a win, Teixeira would vault in to the title picture, so you knew he would come out guns blazing.

Teixeira came out like a bat out of hell and landed some heavy shots out of the gate. After throwing some combinations, Teixeira locked up Te Huna and secured his head and arm before pulling guard and sinking in the fight ending guillotine choke.

That makes it four wins in a row for Teixeira, who immediately should be considered a top contender at 205. It will be interesting to see who the UFC matches Teixeira against next.
