That's because McSweeney was much faster than him and used his kickboxing.

That really has nothing to do with Maldonado's ability to punch.

Especially considering he uh...shattered the dude's ribs by punching them later in the fight and stopped him.

The only reason Glover got rocked was because Fabio looked out on his feet and was just flailing his arms so Glover had his hands down baiting Fabio into exposing himself ended up being Glover who was exposed.

I don't really understand the logic here.

Glover Tex goes out and puts quite possibly the worst beating I've ever seen in the cage, standing, on the ground, everywhere, even outdoing Cyborg vs. Finney and Edgar vs. Maynard II (round one). He gets clipped for half a second by one of the best pure boxers in the sport, and people are saying his standup is bad?

Maldonado is damn tough. Holy shit, I was in awe.

I think a lot of us are just letting our respect for Maldonado's heart carry us away. Ask us again tomorrow.

But for tonight Glover's chin is garbage and Maldonado would have had him in the 3rd.

People are just nit picking I guess. They fail to realize that Glover was out striking Fabio easily up until that point, and probably only took him down in the second because his arms were so tired from you know.. beating the @#%$ out of Fabio in the first round.

It's funny how a guy who has never been knocked out in professional MMA (he's been TKO'd once, and that was in 2002) somehow has a questionable chin from getting caught flush by a very good boxer with solid power and only being rocked by it for a few seconds. Interesting how some people think.

Anyways, Glover looked great everywhere, while Fabio showed unlimited heart. That's the story of this fight.

Because all it takes is 1 punch and Maldonado was nearly out so it is a worry if he could take a punch the similar way from a guy like a Rampage

I liked Maldonado before this because he had a bit of a Diaz style of boxing. But now, fuk that, he's in my top 5. Reminded me of Frazier Vs Ali when they stopped the fight even though it was virtually even on the score cards. Glover was ahead in both rounds, but Fabio has taken so much damage, like Frazier, that the fight should have went on to allow him to go out on his shield and see how far it could have gone. Glover's impressiveness is stifled by Fabio's awesomeness.

Glover committed a sin - thought there was no threat for a second, nearly paid for it. Maldonado hits hard and the shot was clean as fuk, this is not a sign of a terrible chin
