After getting a first-round finish of Karl Roberson at UFC on ESPN+ 1, Glover Teixeira put in a request : He wanted to fight fellow countryman Mauricio Rua , hopefully in Brazil.

Lauderdale on the main card of this Saturday’s UFC on ESPN+ 8, it’s obvious he didn’t get any part of his wish. Teixeira, however, isn’t exactly losing sleep over the circumstances. “They called me, and I’m not the type of guy to ask for fights,” Teixeira told MMA Junkie on Wednesday. “They offered it, and I took it.” It probably helped that the matchup didn’t come out of the blue
