Glover Teixeira goes for a UFC record

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira, who is due to fight for the vacant championship belt with American Jamal Hill in a month, spoke about the record he wants to break before he retires from his professional career.

“Now I want to go down in history,” said the Brazilian in an interview with MMA Junkie. “I am 43 years old, I feel amazing, and maybe I will break Randy Couture’s record – he is the only one who is ahead of me”

UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture remains the oldest fighter in history to hold the UFC championship belt at the age of 45 years and 60 days. In addition, the American is the oldest fighter to win the UFC at the age of 47 years and 68 days.

Recall that the light heavyweight title fight between Glover Teixeira and Jamal Hill will be the main event of the UFC 283 tournament, which will be held on January 21 in Rio de Janeiro.
