Marital Life of Peterson and Glover Texeira


When Glover Texeira relocated to Connecticut in 1999 to help support his family, he met his wife, Ingrid Peterson. At a gym, the two people first met. The couple fell in love and was married in 2001, two years after starting to date. Their relationship faced a test at that point. Since the UFC acquired the WEC, the organization Teixeira was then a part of, and since the visa requirements were tightened (as a result of the 9/11 attacks), Teixeira had entered the US illegally.

Teixeira had no choice but to return to Brazil and deal with the visa problems. Following were four trying years. Teixeira and Peterson hardly ever interacted despite being married. The problem gradually ended once Texeira made significant strides in the MMA world. In 2011, a green card was awarded to him. All of Peterson’s difficulties had to be endured.
