Glover Teixeira is widely considered to be one of the most complete, and dangerous light-heavyweights in all of MMA, and Anthony Johnson doesn’t disagree with that view.

The fighters are scheduled to fight tonight in the co-headliner of UFC 202, and the winner could advance to a title shot. On the latest edition of “UFC Tonight“, Johnson had this to say about Teixeira, when asked if he sees any weaknesses in the latter (quote via FOX Sports 1 press release):

“Not really. He’s got pretty tight boxing and his wrestling is solid. I don’t see too many weaknesses.”

“I’ve been working hard,” added Johnson, while discussing how he’s worked on improving his game. “I’m working on my wrestling, grappling more and I’m always working on my cardio. I hold my breath with my punches in the fight and you know how that catches up with you. But I’m ready for anything.”

Johnson is coming off a first round, KO win over Ryan Bader in January. Teixeira, meanwhile, quickly stopped Rashad Evans in his last bout, this past April.

UFC 202 will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
