Default Glover Teixeira vs Fabio Maldonado (UFC 153)

Quote:
Maldonado had been expected to fight Jorgen Kruth at this month's UFC on FX 5 event. However, Kruth abruptly retired, and Maldonado was expected to shift to UFC 154, where he would meet Cyrille Diabate. But UFC officials had yet to announce the new fight, and Maldonado openly campaigned for the bout with Teixeira.

Meanwhile, Teixeira made his UFC debut in May with an impressive first-round submission win over Kyle Kingsbury. The result marked Teixeira's 16th straight win. His most recent loss came in March 2005.

I actually much prefer this fight over the Rampage fight. Should be a war.

Should be good. Would've been nice to see Teixeira get the attention he deserved with a Rampage fight, though.

I was hoping they'd pick Vera, but he probably have his brains still ringing from the Shogun beatdown.
