Corey Anderson might have been the one fighting on short-notice, but it was his opponent Glover Teixeira who looked ill-prepared on Sunday.

The Rockton native defeated the UFC’s third-ranked Light Heavyweight fighter Teixeira by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) in Hamberg, Germany.

Anderson (12-4) was added to the co-main event at UFC Fight Night 134 just two weeks ago after Teixeira’s opponent Ilir Latifi pulled out with an injury.

Corey Anderson has now won back to back fights, both of them coming in the last three months.
