Teixeira, Te-Huna Set To Throw Down In Light Heavyweight Tilt At UFC 160

Posted by Jack "The Hammer" Howard on 5/22/2013 7:34:13 PM

There is nothing that sports betting MMA fans want to see more than a dominant knockout win by the fighter they bet on at a UFC event. There is going to be plenty of that at this weekend’s UFC 160: Silva vs. Bigfoot 2 show. From the lightweight fights to open the card to the UFC Heavyweight title fight between champion Cain Velasquez and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, there will be a ton of striking at this event and that alone will make it worth tuning in to. One fight on the main card that may not be getting the attention it deserves in the wake of all of these other bouts is the light heavyweight contest between Glover Teixeira and James Te-Huna. These are two big men that know how to throw with a ton of power, and that should make for an exciting showdown.

There will be a lot at stake when these fighters meet as well, as both Teixeira and Te-Huna appear to be on the right track for earning a UFC Light Heavyweight title shot. When it comes to pure striking, there aren’t many other fighters in the division that have the same power that these two will bring to the Octagon. Te-Huna is an absolute mauler that doesn’t waste a second getting after his opponent and throwing bombs, and every one of the punches he throws is a legitimate knockout threat. Te-Huna has mostly relied on his standup game in the past, with one of the lone exceptions being his last win over Ryan Jimmo. Teixeira will force the issue in this online sports betting bout, but don’t expect Teixeira to back down.

Teixeira is truly as tough as they come, and would like nothing more than to gain position over Te-Huna and unload with a flurry of punches. Teixeira hits hard whether he’s standing or standing over someone, but if it’s the latter then there isn’t much chance of the opponent getting back up. Every time that Teixeira walks to the Octagon fans are reminded of what he did to opponents like Fabio Maldonado, and it is that intimidating presence that can make him that much more difficult of an opponent to fight every time.

Both fighters can wrestle as well, but it isn’t as though online sportsbook players should expect to see either one go for the submission in this fight. It isn’t as though neither fighter is capable of scoring a submission win, it’s that neither one will likely be in position to do it with the concentration focused almost solely on the striking battle. Teixeira is the favorite to win this fight and deserves to be, but in a contest where anything can happen with a single punch, it is impossible to rule out Te-Huna’s chances of winning. UFC 160 is loaded with knockout potential, and this light heavyweight bout is a big part of that.
