Glover Teixeira def. Misha Cirkunov by TKO at 2:45 of round 1: Light Heavyweight

Cirkunov opened the bout with a crushing liver kick, but Teixeira wore it well and returned fire with the hands. Teixeira ate several clean punches as his back was to the cage and Cirkunov was pressing forward. The veteran Teixeira got the takedown, took the back of his opponent, attempting to RNC Cirkunov. The defense of Cirkunov was on point, so Teixeira opted to flatten out his opposition, and pound him out with a barrage of unanswered strikes until the referee stepped in.
