The 39-year old Brazilian veteran Glover Teixeira (29-7-0) is always a UFC fan favourite in the Light Heavyweight division and he takes on Ukrainian veteran Nikita Krylov (25-6-0) in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 158.
This exciting event is headlined by Donald Cerrone Vs Justin Gaethje and takes place at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada, on Saturday, September 14th 2019.
Nikita Krylov comes into this co-main event bout on the back of a highly notable win over former title challenger Ovince St Preux, so that’s probably why the 25-6-0 fighter is trading as the slight bookies favourite, this and the fact he holds an age advantage.
However, Glover Teixeira has defied his years in the past and can do so again. A well rounded fighter with KO power and submission skills, Teixeira appears to be healthy and motivated once again, which makes him a dangerous opponent for anybody in the 205lb division.
