Who will win Thiago Santos v Glover Teixeira fight?
Teixeira is a very experienced fighter who has reached 40 years old and has 38 professional fights on his 18-year career. Despite the age, the Brazilian has a great form at the moment so cannot be underestimated. He bounced back from controversial defeat against Corey Anderson with a win over Karl Roberson in 2019. After that, he also submitted Ion Cutelaba later on that year and has now won consecutive fights for the first time since 2016. After that, he extended his positive run with a win over Nikita Krylov a year ago and lately outperformed ‘Lionheart’ Anthony Smith in one of the first UFC’s behind closed doors nights. Smith was hammered by the Brazilian who made a clear statement that he hasn’t done yet with the sport.
Said that we still believe Santos to win this fight. Teixeira is an experienced fighter that will cause problems to Santos, but the latter is a lot quicker and should be able to land his strikes routinely before finishing his opponent off.
