“I was sitting listening to him give his interview – he’s not wrong,” White said on the UFC Vegas 13 post-fight show (via Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie). “It’s like, ‘I deserve the shot, I’ve been here forever.’ He’s on a streak, he looked great tonight. What’s funny is, every time I count this guy and think that I don’t know if you got it in you, he proves me wrong. He looked incredible tonight.”

Israel Adesanya is expected to get the next title shot, but Jan Blachowicz won’t be ready to fight until March.

The UFC President also admits that he is taking Teixeira serious going forward.

“That’s something we need to figure out,” White said. “But I heard him and I agree with him and I’m taking him serious. So, yeah. I’m not going to doubt this guy any more.”
