Rampage told Teixeira to go win the title...
UFC on Fox 6 winner Glover Teixeira at the UFC on Fox 6 post-fight press conference discussed his big win over former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and his message to Glover after the fight was over.
Teixeira on Jackson's message to him after the fight was over: "He said, 'Now I'm your fan. Go get the title.'"
Teixeira on how he thinks the fight went: "He's a legend in this sport, and I feel great going in there and having that fight with him. I stood up with him, took him down, did it all. I feel great about the fight...I beat a guy who's been in the top 10 for how long? He's an ex-champ and a tough guy. Like Dana was saying, he was training hard. He was tough. He's so tough. He can take a punch. But [this win] puts me up there. I'm ready to fight anyone."
UFC President Dana White on Teixeira's performance: "I honestly believe that tonight if Glover was fighting anyone else he would have knocked them out in the first round. Rampage got hit with that shot, and not only can he punch hard, he can take a punch."
Teixeira on where the win puts him and what he will do next: "It's up to him and the UFC. I don't care. I'll fight anyone, anyone out there. I think I'm 100 percent right now, and when they call me, I'll be ready."
