He could have blamed his injuries. He could have blamed his opponent for not trying to close things out. He could have blamed a lot of things for failing to capture the light heavyweight championship at UFC 172 on Saturday night, but Glover Teixeira offered no excuses.

Hat’s off! Glover Teixeira = Class Act
