In today’s fighter profile, we are going to know about Glover Teixeira net worth, personal life, professional career, endorsements and assets, and more. A thing about the UFC light-heavyweight is that people deteriorate with age, he on the other hand gets better and better. At the age of 41, Glover competes for the second title shot, possibly an age where most people call it a career.
The Brazilian mixed martial artist is a force to reckon with as he owns a five-fight win streak before his fight with the UFC light-heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz. Teixeira has a total record of 32 wins, 7 losses in his professional MMA career. And to say that he has been there forever won’t be an exaggeration for Teixeira has been fighting since the WEC and Pride days.
Glover Teixeira Professional Career
Prior to his MMA career, Teixeira was well known in the grappling circuit and fought for Grappler’s Quest, North American Grappler’s Association and ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships. He secured a Gold Medal in the 2009 ADCC Southern American Championships. He is known to grapple with fighters like Jeff Monson and Brandon Vera.
So to not much surprise, Teixeira holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but it’s the knockout capacity that gives him more respect in the octagon. During his pro-MMA tenure and before UFC, Teixeira has fought for WEC, Pride FC, Impact, and Shooto. He first caught major attention when he knocked out UFC and Pride veteran, Sokoudjou at WEC 24 in 2006. Teixeira came to mainstream notice with his build-up before his fight for the light-heavyweight title with Jon Jones.
Teixeira is one of the unusual fighters whom you would consider to be truly having no weaknesses as much in any aspect of MMA, whether it’s striking or grappling. As mentioned before, though Teixeira is a submission specialist, the Brazilian has secured 18 knockouts in his 32 win stint and only 7 submissions. His notable victories include those over Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos, Corey Anderson, Rashad Evans, Ryan Bader, “Rampage” Jackson, and many more veterans!
