It is a light heavyweight fight between number 1 contender Alexander Gustafsson against Glover Teixeira who is in the top 5 of the rankings. The odds favored Gustafsson who has the height and the speed against the bulk and heavy hands of Teixeira. It looked like a lopsided fight with Gustafsson hitting Teixeira time and again. And in the 5[SUP]th[/SUP] round, when everyone thought it would be the judges to decide the fight, Gustafsson released a barrage that knocked down Teixeir which the referee immediately stopped the fight.
