Ryan Bader vs. Glover Teixeira At UFC on FS1: 3 ?


Yes the rumors are true Glover Teixeira will be returning to the octagon to face off against Ryan Bader at UFC on Fox Sports 1: 3.

These two Light-Heavyweight fighters were scheduled to fight at UFC 160 this past May but Ryan Bader pulled from the event citing a injury and was replaced by James Te Huna. Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna fought it out at UFC 160 and when it was all said and done Glover Teixeira defeated Te Huna via guillotine choke and was awarded submission of the night.

If Glover Teixeira is able to pull out a victory against Ryan Bader at the event there is no doubt in my mind and in the minds of UFC fans worldwide that he his next fight will be for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.

But if Bader is able to upset and hand Glover his first loss in his UFC career it will put Bader in a great position to get back into contendership for the Light Heavyweight Championship.
