Please don't take this as me being a dick, I really do want to hear your argument. As far as I currently see it Tex has momentum solely through hype, but I am more than open to hear justification to how I am wrong.

Edit: No matter how I read it in my own head I think I sound like a dick in this post when I am trying not to be.
Glover has beat two top tens Bader and Rampage, who was also a former champ. Glover is an undefeated 5-0 in the UFC and undefeated in the last EIGHT years. He has completely dominated all his opponents, not barely won. He only has two losses from more than 8 years ago in his first 4 fights.

Matt Brown hasn't beat a single top 10 fighter let alone a former champ. He is on a six win streak sure, against non top 10s, but he is 11-5 in the UFC total and has nearly a dozen losses in his record, almost in the same range as his number of wins.

The two are not even REMOTELY comparable.
