They traded strikes before Teixeira secured a takedown and reigned down shots on Jackson. Jackson looked to return to his feet and ate two more big shots from Teixeira.

The fighters finished off trading shots before Teixeira put the result beyond doubt, taking Jackson to the mat in the closing seconds.

It what was Teixeira’s third UFC fight, the former Shooto South America 220-pound champion picked up his first decision win in the promotion after two previous stoppages, while Jackson suffered his third consecutive loss in the UFC.
