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.
That's because Jones in altitude no less didn't look tired.

Glover was looking a little tired towards the end and yes it was a grueling pace, Rampage was throwing big shots and Glover was returning and landing way more of them, but I already knew Glover was an animal and Rampage was tough so I wasn't exactly surprised, Rampage has been done for years. But you seem awfully confident Glover can somehow keep one of the best wrestlers in MMA if not the best wrestler in MMA from dumping him on his head and cutting him open and will make it a "five round war" and considering Glover looked tired after a three round beating that he mostly administered I'm not exactly down to jump on that train.

No one is denying Glover dominated Rampage, but that's just it, he dominated Rampage, a guy who mentally checked out years ago.
