Esther Lin, MMA Fighting
After years of waiting to make his UFC debut, things went about as well as Glover Teixeira might have dreamed.
Teixeira, a longtime training partner of Chuck Liddell, has long been considered one of the best light-heavyweights outside of the UFC.
He came into the fight riding a 15-fight win streak, and he looked every bit of the wrecking machine as his reputation indicated.
The 32-year-old put the rest of the division on notice, saying he'd earned his green card and wasn't going anywhere. His arrival was a long time coming. Way back in 2008, he reportedly signed with the organization before visa issues torpedoed that opportunity.
He improved to 18-2 with the win.
Kingsbury fell to 11-4 with 1 no contest after dropping his second straight in the octagon.
