PREVIEW: Glover Teixeira vs Alexander Gustafson

By: BryceThis Saturday, Alex "The Mauler" Gustafson returns to face fellow 205 elite Glover Teixeira. These two have long been a staple at the top of the division, and the winner of this may fight Manuwa for the No. 1 contender spot following this summer's Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier sequel. To get you hyped up, let's look and see what these two guys do best.  https://youtu.be/cAZN89c0Mug As you can see, the nickname "The Mauler" is fitting. He's a long, strong, well rounded 205er that can hang with anyone. He is coming off of a win over Jan Blachowicz and hopes he can keep it going Saturday night. Also, it is important to note he is fighting in front of his hometown of Stockholm Sweden.  https://youtu.be/ySf43YrAutw Glover is one of those guys that bounces back very well. He has lost 3 times in the UFC, two of which are regarded as some of the best Light Heavyweights in UFC history in Rumble Johnson and Jon Jones. He is also a well rounded fighter who possesses one punch KO power. With the crowd against him, look for Teixeira to close the distance in the taller fighter and try to slug it out.
