UFC veteran Glover Teixeira seems set to get a possibility to regain the promotion’s mild heavyweight title amid experiences that he’s set to rematch champion Jiri Prochazka within the UFC 282 headliner in December.
Teixiera, who turns 43 in October, misplaced the 205-pound title in what was his first defence of the championship towards Czech fighter Prochazka in Singapore in June in what was an excellent back-and-forth battle, which was finally claimed by Prochazka by late submission in what was simply his third combat for the organisation.
Teixeira was up on two scorecards heading into the fifth spherical, whereas one other had it scored as a draw — and each males have indicated that they had been typically sad with how the combat progressed, regardless of it’s thrilling nature.
And regardless of former champ Jan Blachowicz’s marketing campaign to be the following title challenger, it appears each Teixeira and Prochazka are eager to run their first assembly again after reports emerged that each have verbally agreed to the competition.
The Brazilian had urged that he was near retirement — however apparently not earlier than one final world title combat.
UFC 282 is scheduled to happen on December 10 at a venue but to be introduced, although the T-Cellular Area in Las Vegas is he more than likely host.
