People go on and on about how such and such would struggle with Jones, but if we scheduled fights on that logic, guys like Silva, GSP, and Jones would have zero challengers.

Glover dominated. He didn't rush into anything, but do people forget who he was fighting? Rampage is known for landing in wild exchanges. Glover fought smart and Jackson had nothing for him.
People only see what they want to see. Glover did dominate Rampage in every facet of the game. For those complaining that Glover wasn't so impressive because he couldn't finish an "over the hill" Rampage (LyotoLegion), can you please ask yourself when some one finished Rampage within three rounds? The last time Rampage was finished in under three rounds was 8 years ago. Jon Jones himself couldn't put Rampage away in three rounds, and methodically picked Rampage apart and dominated those rounds similar to how Glover did, yet I don't see you people complaining about Jones' performance against page.

Had it been a five round fight, and given Rampages' conditioning in the fight and body language, it would have been highly likely Glover would have finished him in the latter two rounds.

Glass chinned Rashad wouldn't last two rounds with Glover. Stylistic nightmare for Rashad. He hasn't got the grappling to lay and pray Tex, and he hasn't got the striking or the chin to trade with him either. Bring it on.
