UFC Fight Night 28 may not have been the deepest card on paper, but when it came to the top of the heap, Wednesday's stars all passed their tests with flying colors.

The heavy-handed trio of Glover Teixeira, Jacare Souza and Joseph Benavidez joined forces to steamroll its way through back-to-back-to-back first-round finishes, capping off the action from Belo Horizonte, Brazil with a flurry of bruised jaws and swollen fists. For Souza and Benavidez, the performance inched each man closer to his ultimate goal -- a UFC title shot.

Yet for Teixeira, the powerful 33-year-old who stormed back from early trouble to flatten Ryan Bader and ignite a hometown crowd, the victory proved to be the final step in his long journey to the top. Next stop: the winner of Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson. And not surprisingly, the champ had something to say.
