After the bout, the 43-year-old Teixeira announced he is hanging up the gloves, after fighting professionally for twenty-plus years.
In the co-headliner, Brandon Moreno (21-6-2) unified the flyweight crown, by scoring a TKO win over Deiveson Figueiredo (21-3-1). The fight was stopped after round three concluded, as Figueiredo’s right eye had swollen completely shut.
