Damn, this is a good one. Maldonado has great boxing and Glover is just a berserker. No way this is going to the judges. I'm picking Maldonado by TKO just for the heck of it.

Glover Teixeira in 1st RO

Looking forward to this match up. Maldonado has some of the better boxing in MMA, but I still expect Teixeira to be able to take him out as hes just the better conditioned stronger fighter.

Glover will continue his impressive ways in the UFC with this fight.

Maldonado's striking is so overrated, he gets hit hard and often by guys who on paper should be perplexed by his boxing. He utilizes nice combos and body punching when he has someone on the fence but his method of getting the fight there is to march forward with a static jab, chin there for the taking.

Glover will club him with something and take full advantage of it, earning another (T)KO or submission win.

Nail on the head right there... I think Glover takes this. Fabio has great striking but never utilizes it fully.

1st Rd TKO Glover.

Definitely excited for this one!

Glover in violent fashion.

Glover by whatever he wants. It may be exciting for a few minutes, but I don't see it being very competitive.

Fabio's over confidence in his standup will setup a sweet KO for Glover. I'm sure of it.
