What they say

Glover Teixeira: "Of course, there's nothing I can say against my last fight; all judges saw it for him. It would be funny if I were to complain. I really lost that fight. Truth be told, I was feeling ill during my weight recovery. But I'm not interested in looking for excuses. I'm already prepared for my next fight. But sometimes, right before a fight, something goes wrong."
