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.

Nope.

Instead, Teixeira was perhaps the most gracious we’ve ever seen a fighter in defeat when Jon Jones bested him for the better part of all five rounds of their UFC 172 main event in Baltimore.

Hat’s off! Glover Teixeira = Class Act

    glover is a better human than jon will ever be

      So, since he can’t beat him he’s a better ‘human.’ Nice try. I respect Glover, but Jones is a class act. Respectful of his opponents, humble and gracious both inside and outside of the octagon. Fewer haters will result in a better society, grow up.

        You grow up dipshit. JJ wins then tks Ray Lewis for being there?? Didn’t he kill someone, pay off the families of the victims and paid off the family of the dude who took the blame?? So yea…Glover is the better man. He’s not fake like JJ

            No but he played a role in it , and the cover up

          • Ron Bidelman Jr.

            Let me guess…. OJ was framed too??

          • Kenny Powers

            Donald Sterling, is that you???

          • Ron Bidelman Jr.

        You guys sound like a bunch of bitches, if you want to be the best you gotta take out the best. At the minute Jones is the best, Glover is showing true respect and not taking anything away from the Champ… Gracious in defeat, I wanted Glover to win though… Gus has fought Jones before and knows what to expect in their next bout and could pull off the upset.

    Compared to anyone that gives a shoutout to Ray Lewis we are all class acts

  • JDMMA

    Kinda look like JDS after his loss to Cain
