I love all the Debbie Downers. People are fans of Glover and excited about his prospects. Yet we get "he has nothing for Jones!" "You think he can hang with Jones???" "Glover got rocked in 2 fights!!!".

Settle down people. Can't people get excited about a fighter that is exciting? Of course he probably won't beat Bones. We got excited for Diaz, Condit, and now Hendricks. Does it mean they were going to beat GSP? Bones is a P4P top guy, of course he is going to be favored against anyone at 205.

But Glover is well-rounded, and exciting fighter who is ALWAYS looking to finish, seemingly a humble and nice guy as well. He probably has a better chance than Gustaf or at least more ways to possibly win.

This place is hilarious. Anytime anyone gets excited about a fighter or root for a guy, people are quick to say "NO WAY HE BEATS SO AND SO!!!" WHo cares. Tex is one of the best guys to watch in MMA. And he isn't a dick. He should have more fans than he does. No one is claiming he is the next all time great. There is NO ONE at 205. People should be excited at what he brings to the division rather than write him off just because he will be a big underdog just like Rashad, Rampage, Gustaf, Machida and any other legend/elite fighter of the division was.
