Former UFC title challenger Glover Teixeira showed today that he still has a lot left in his tank as he defeated a surging contender in Thiago Santos.

In the main event of UFC Vegas 13, Teixeira submitted Marreta via rear-naked choke in the third round. Glover Teixeira was almost knocked out in the first round when Santos hammered him with hard punches followed by a heavy ground and pound.

However, Glover showed gis toughness by hanging in there and securing a takedown and dishing out punishments of his own. While Glover was outgunned on the feet, Thiago Santos could do nothing while on his back.

This scenario continued in the second round, however, Marreta came in early and clipped Glover with a hard right hand which dropped him. Santos then followed up with heavy ground and pound, but Glover didn’t give up and he turned things around and took ground control over Santos and sinking his elbow and then choked him out with a rear-naked choke.
