09:09 PM ET 01.29 | Top UFC light heavyweight Glover Teixeira bested Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson at UFC on FOX 6 on Saturday, but that doesn't mean he's ready for the big leagues. Teixeira said he'd rather take a fight now before worrying about the result of Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen in April. "That's not my job. The No. 1 contender right now is Chael Sonnen. You have to respect that," Teixeira said after the fight. "I think Chael is a good fighter, but I believe Jones is going to keep the title. [Waiting for the winner] is going to take too long. I want to fight before that."
