Glover is a BEAST. He has arguably the best boxing in the division, devastating power (19 wins, 17 finishes), excellent grappling ability, relentless pressure and the cardio to go with it AND has a sturdy chin.

He is absolutely a threat to Jon Jones.
Where did I say he didn't have talent?

You bring up Cain, Cain wouldn't have been tired in that third round and struggled to put away a shot, aged, past his prime fighter. Is Glover a beast? Sure but Jones is too, and Glover's cardio didn't impress me and he hasn't shown me anything that makes me believe he can keep Jones one of the best wrestlers in MMA from dumping on his head.
