UFC on ESPN+ 8 results: Glover Teixeira rallies, submits Ion Cutelaba


Ion Cutelaba came into his UFC on ESPN+ 8 main-card bout vs. Glover Teixeira with a hotheaded reputation and a knack for coming out fast in fights.


But Teixeira is one of the saltiest old dogs in the game, and he knew to stay patient when his light heavyweight opponent came out strong Saturday night.


He connected on a spinning backfist, nearly hit Teixeira with what would have been an illegal knee if it landed, then started scoring offense from top position.


Teixeira simply threw his tiring foe to the mat, then wasted little time getting into top position for the winning choke.


The light heavyweight bout was part of the main card of the UFC on ESPN+ 8 event at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla.


UFC 48m ago Corey Sandgahen finished the fight in a bad position, but he’d done enough to that point to score the win.
