Glover Teixeira went to fan-boy level 11 on Mike Tyson. Again.

Glover Teixeira went to fan-boy level 11 on Mike Tyson. Again.

After Glover Teixeira won his fight at UFC 160 against James Te Huna, he all but got down on one knee and proposed to Mike Tyson. I am making light of the situation, but I get it. I really do.

Growing up, I idolized Michael Jordan. I have a 15 year old son and his named Jordan. Did we name him that because of a man-crush? No we did not (That’s what I tell my wife. *Shhh*). Michael Jordan was my biggest source of inspiration when I was growing up and his name signified ‘greatness’ to me.

After this past Sunday, there will be a lot of November babies named ‘Thomas’ and ‘Brady’. That, I can guarantee you.

This Saturday night at UFC 208, Glover Teixeira will take on Jared Cannonier. He looks to get back on track, after his 13 second knockout loss to Anthony Johnson at UFC 202. Glover and his wife took a road trip to Iron Mike Tyson’s old gym for motivation.

Whatever you need to get your head in the place you need it to be, you do it. If visiting Mike’s old gym while wearing a ‘Tyson’ shirt is what Glover Teixeira needs to draw his inspiration from, so be it. Everyone has their own thing.

Look at Conor McGregor fan-boys. Every day on Instagram they offer to bathe him like a cat does a kitten.
