Glover's certainly got things to work on, just like every other fighter out there, including the champions. But I don't think many people gave Chris Weidman a snowball's chance in hell of knocking out Anderson Silva.

I wouldn't even call myself a diehard Glover fan. But the manner in which some people so casually dismiss him is ridiculous. Yes he's been stunned once or twice. But he's also dominated and won all of his fights. How one outweighs the other is beyond me.
I have to agree. It's as if people expect Tex to have to steamroll everyone without taking any damage in order to have a chance against JBJ. I believe Jones will finish anyone he can take down and get on top of, but if it stayed on the feet Tex would smash him.
