The UFC has found a new opponent for Glover Teixeira.

The Brazilian light heavyweight was matched-up against Ilir Latifi in the co-main event of UFC Hamburg on July 22, but needed a new foe after Latifi pulled out with an injury. Anderson quickly volunteered on social media and the UFC made it happen, sources confirmed to MMA Fighting after a report from Combate.

Anderson also announced on Instagram that he has signed a new contract with the UFC.

Call me crazy but Anderson has the potential and talent to match it with the top lightheavy weights, he just has these lapses sometimes with his defence and that is pretty much his only downfall. If he plays it smart I think he can take Glover out here in the later rounds.
