Glover Teixeira’s pursuit of another shot at the light-heavyweight title was seriously set back tonight at UFC 179, as the feared slugger was decisioned by Phil Davis.

Teixeira came out aggressively early on, and threatened with some hard punches, but Davis was able to put his renowned wrestling game to work. Throughout the remainder of the bout, Davis was able to take Teixeira to the ground on multiple occasions, and land shots from the side position.

Teixeira never appeared to be seriously hurt, but the contender was largely unable to land any offense of his own and lost via unanimous decision.

With the win, Davis could move into the division’s top five rankings.
