Canadian light heavyweight Misha Cirkunov to fight Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night in Sao Paulo on Oct. 28



A light heavyweight bout between Misha Cirkunov and Glover Teixeira will take place at October’s UFC “Fight Night” event in Sao Paulo.

UFC officials announced the matchup between Cirkunov (13-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Teixeira (26-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC).

UFC Fight Night in Sao Paulo takes place Oct. 28 at Ibirapuera Gymnasium. The event airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Cirkunov, No. 9 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light heavyweight rankings, is coming off a stunning 28-second knockout loss to Volkan Oezdemir at UFC Fight Night 109 in May. The defeat snapped his eight-fight winning streak.

No. 6-ranked Teixeira, meanwhile, also is coming off a knockout loss. The 37-year-old former title challenger suffered a fifth-round knockout loss against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Fight Night 109, dropping him to 1-2 in his past three octagon appearances.
