He gets clipped for half a second by one of the best pure boxers in the sport, and people are saying his standup is bad?

Maldonado is damn tough. Holy shit, I was in awe.
People are just nit picking I guess. They fail to realize that Glover was out striking Fabio easily up until that point, and probably only took him down in the second because his arms were so tired from you know.. beating the @#%$ out of Fabio in the first round.

It's funny how a guy who has never been knocked out in professional MMA (he's been TKO'd once, and that was in 2002) somehow has a questionable chin from getting caught flush by a very good boxer with solid power and only being rocked by it for a few seconds. Interesting how some people think.

Anyways, Glover looked great everywhere, while Fabio showed unlimited heart. That's the story of this fight.
