A little shaky, because like Glover himself said he got too confident. And probably not comfortable with all the hype the UFC is pushing behind him.

But at the end there he was blocking most of those shots. I am talking right before he knocked Bader down. He was blocking those and rolling with the punnches. He basically baited Bader in trying wild looping punches, then he tagged him 1-2 accuratly. The start was iffy, but he showed that he is definatly a good wrestler. Maybe not enough to stuff a Jones TD. But as formatable as anyone else is with the wrestling.

Wasn't flawless. But it showed many key things.
- Glover is a professional and doesn't wilt or get crazy when he gets in trouble.
-Glover can wrestle pretty well, it isn't just false hype. He is a damn good wrestler and strong.
- Glover isn't content with just KOing top 10 guys in the first round. He and his training partners know he hasn't shown even close to his best.
