"It's just business, Quinton is a great a fighter. I loved to watch him fight back in the day. I still like to watch him fight. He's a funny guy. I'm just going to go over there and take care of business.You know me. I don't do that [trash talking]. I've got confidence. I'm going to go over there and put on a great fight for the fans and try to knock him out. It's my opinion. It's not going to change." - Glover Teixeira via MMAJunkie
UFC light-heavyweight Glover Teixeira seems uninterested in getting into a back-and-forth trash talking contest with former UFC light-heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson.
Instead the Brazilian slugger is content to focus on the task at hand, and allow his performance inside the Octagon do the talking.
Teixeira (19-2), who has shown to have solid power his punches as evidenced by his two previous UFC bouts against Kyle Kingsbury and Fabio Maldonado, will be looking for the knockout against the former champion at UFC on FOX 6.
Teixeira is currently riding an astounding 17-fight winning streak -- a feat made more impressive when you consider that the Brazilian has finished all of his opponents over that stretch with the exception of Daniel Tabera whom he defeated via unanimous decision.
His opponent, Jackson (32-10), is coming off of back-to-back losses to Jon Jones and Ryan Bader. According to Jackson, his bout against Teixeira will be his last under the UFC banner as he will test the free agency market and look to fight in other promotions.
UFC on FOX 6 is scheduled for Jan. 26 inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
