01:01 PM ET 07.22 | UFC light-heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira is one of the few fighters in the mix at the top of the organization's 205-pound division and he is prepared to take the next step and fight for the title. Teixeira is on a 19-fight win streak that began in 2005 and his next fight will be on Sept. 4 against Ryan Bader in Brazil. If Teixeira is able to add another tally in the win column, he will be very deserving for a crack at the title and when that opportunity comes he will be ready. Teixeira has been spectacular since joining the organization with a lot of hype and the fans are ready to see the Brazilian fighter jump to the next level.

Kind of sad when you have to beat Ryan Bader to get a title shot.
