Glover Teixeira shares his opinion on Alex Pereira avenging his loss against Jamahal Hill at UFC 300

Glover Teixeira and Alex Pereira train at the Teixeira MMA and Fitness in Danbury, Connecticut, and have played a crucial role in helping each other progress in their combat sports careers.

Alex Pereira registered the first defense of his light heavyweight title by knocking out his predecessor Jamahal Hill at last weekend’s UFC 300 pay-per-view event. Interestingly, Hill captured the title at UFC 283 by defeating Teixeira, who called it a career following the defeat.

As a result, Alex Pereira’s devastating knockout win over Hill is being perceived as revenge for his teammate’s loss. Teixeira, who has a strong personal bond with Pereira, gave an interesting opinion on ‘Poatan’s’ victory over Hill:

“Hey, man! Don’t beat anybody’s big brother, you know. Because the little brother will come after you. Don’t be a bully!”

Watch Teixeira make the statement below:

Heading into the fight, Hill engaged in the trash talk that seemed to have irked Pereira. Although it was expected to be a tough back-and-forth battle, the relatively uneventful fight ended in the first round after Pereira’s trademark left hook sent Hill crashing down to the canvas.

The referee stepped in to stop the fight as ‘Poatan’ rained down follow-up strikes. Alex Pereira enacted the meme after his victory as a response to the disrespect that Hill showed.
