Sherdog.com: How would you approach a fight against Jones?
Teixeira: As I always say, beat the hell out of him Mike Tyson-style.
Sherdog.com: What was it like meeting Tyson, one of your idols?
Teixeira: Honestly, it was different. I felt several emotions. The last sparring session I had with Chuck before coming to Brazil, we beat the hell out of each other. It was like a brawl. Then Chuck hugged me and said, with his eyes filled with tears, “I’ll miss you. Come back soon because you’ll be champion, I’m sure.” It was a big thrill. With Tyson, it was very similar. I almost cried. He gave me tips, asked me to move my head more, like he did.
