06:34 PM ET 10.08 | Add Glover Teixeira to the list of people that think mixed martial arts will one day overtake soccer as the most popular sport in Brazil. "MMA has always been big. But after the UFC went over there it's crazy. I never thought I would see the day where I would say this; the UFC will be bigger than soccer, and I believe it's gonna be, because people are disappointed with soccer anyways. All the soccer players are doing crazy stuff over there, and not playing well. Brazil not doing very well lately in the games. People are just talking more about fighting than soccer."
