05:54 PM ET 09.25 | FC light heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira was expected to take on the winner of the UFC 165 main event between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, but an epic battle in Toronto may have forced him to have his title shot put on hold. After the entertaining back-and-forth fight, fans and media alike were calling for an immediate rematch. Like the rest of mixed martial arts fans that tuned in for the Jones vs. Gustafsson fight, Teixeira thoroughly enjoyed the bout. However, he is still holding out hope that he will get the next shot. "Even I want to watch that fight again," said Teixeira, via USA Today. "But it's hard to say I'm OK with it, because I worked so hard to get this opportunity. I felt like I had my hands right there on the chance, and now they're going to take it away from me, and who knows for how long? It could be a year from now. It's really upsetting to me."
