Former title challenger Glover Teixeira continued his climb back toward title contention on Saturday with a stoppage win over Patrick Cummins at UFC Fight Night 77.
Teixeira (24-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and Cummins (8-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) duked it out in the first round, trading back and forth. But in the second, Teixeira hurt Cummins pretty early in their co-main event and went on to get a TKO stoppage.
UFC Fight Night 77 took place at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. Following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, the rest of the card aired on FOX Sports 1.
