Glover Teixeira made quick work of former champion Rashad Evans at UFC Fight Night on Saturday night (April 16), knocking him out in the first round.
The fight began with Evans backing into the fence early, before Teixeira dropped him with a left hook and immediately followed with a right to end the fight with 1 minute and 48 seconds left in the round.
“This fight was five rounds, but I didn’t want to come here and do footwork,” Teixeira said after the fight. “My way to fight is finish. [I’m] like [former heavyweight boxer] Mike Tyson. I take care of business.”
It was Teixeira’s third consecutive win, improving his record to 25-4, while Evans record is now 19-5 after suffering his second straight loss.
