UFC on FOX 19: Dana White’s on Board With Glover Teixeira – Anthony Johnson

UFC President Dana White

By FCF Staff

After Glover Teixeira knocked out Rashad Evans at UFC on FOX 19, the light-heavyweight called for a fight with fellow contender Anthony Johnson; Dana White is on board.

While speaking to Joe Rogan in the Octagon, Teixeira called out Johnson, who was sitting cageside in Tampa. While appearing on FOX Sports’ post-fight show, here is what White had to say about the proposed bout (quote via MMA Junkie.com):

“When he called him out I go, ‘Oh, I like that fight. That’s a fun fight,’” White said. “Glover looked awesome tonight, Rashad Evans is always a dangerous guy. Rashad has speed in his hands, he has knockout power himself and he got caught. You know I don’t make fights after fights, but I’ve got to be honest, when he called him out, I liked that fight.”

Johnson is coming off a quick, KO win over Ryan Bader in January. The only man who has defeated Johnson since 2012 is reigning champ, Daniel Cormier.
