Glover Teixeira appeared at the weigh-in at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro on the 21st and looked better than Jamahal Hill. He was a bit short, but his body seemed bigger. He couldn’t seem to tell who was younger and who was older.
However, on the main card of UFC 283 on the 22nd, they will fight for the light heavyweight title, and they are 12 years old.
Teixeira was born in 1979 and is 43 years old, and Hill is 31 years old, born in 1991. In terms of strength and endurance, there is no choice but to be different at this age.
That’s why Teixeira is an underdog even though he is ahead in all aspects, such as grappling skills and game experience.
Teixeira has +113 and -117 heal. It’s a gap that I can overcome enough, and considering my age, it’s the same as Topp Dogg.
It’s a better prediction than when he passed Jan Vlakovic and won the title at 42 years and 2 days. At that time, the odds were well over plus or minus 300.
Even so, Teixeira’s stamina is the biggest problem. The decline in physical strength for one year after the age of 40 is similar to the two years in the early 30s. There is no difference between 31 and 32 years old. 32 might be better. However, the 42-year-old and 43-year-old are markedly different. Teixeira knows that better than anyone. His strategy is to lead the round by grappling. Fighting on the hill and in the middle of the octagon is a shortcut to defeat. We will exchange fists, but the conclusion will be a takedown and it will be wrestling. “Last year, last year, and now are the same. He trained with the idea of going all the way to round 5. I will put on a really good game and be the champion again. There is nothing to be afraid of.” Teixeira said confidently. It’s not quite what it sounds like, but it didn’t sound very empty either. 온라인바카라
Hill is a lucky fighter. In their last three fights, they’ve knocked out Jimmy Krut, Johnnie Walker and Thiago Santos in three straight matches, but they’re not in a position to fight for a title. However, after two deciding matches, he was given a title shot. MMA 11 wins 1 loss, UFC 5 wins 1 loss.
Teixeira, which may be the last stage. If you lose, it will not be easy to hold out in the Octagon any longer. But he’s not thinking about losing.
He wants to show that even a 43-year-old ‘old fighter’ can play a winning game. MMA 33-8, UFC 16-6.
