Glover is a beast, I would like to see him fight either Davis or Te Huna next. Maldonado is extremly tough he wobbled around like a drunk Irish men after taking that extreme beating early but like a drunk Irish Men he kept swinging and still got some good shots in.

Getting stopped once doesn't disqualify you from that conversation.

Nelson is extremely hard to finish and the one time he was finished, it was under extremely questionable circumstances.

I was trying to think of fighters who could withstand that type of punishment. That was some serious display of a rock solid jaw and heart.

I could see Glover getting a bit bewildered. He was landing some incredibly hard shots over and over. Fabio just wouldn't go away. There should be a new award for this.

Maldonado should fight Kingbury again...since the first was controversial. Sadly it would probably be a loser leaves town fight.

Ironman vs Ironman, they both impressed the hell out of me in there last fights.

Glover's stand up looked really good at the start of the fight. He was clipping Fabio easily and even dropped him. Just shows that hitting someone a thousand times in the face can tire out your arms.

Anyways, anyone notice how biased Rogan seemed in favor of Fabio? Teixeira dropped him early in round one and Rogan barely reacted, and as he's ground and pounding Fabio's face into the mat basically, Mike is the only one who seems to be reacting a lot toward it. It seems like other fights where something even less brutal is happening, Rogan's eating it up and overreacting.

Then when Fabio hits Glover flush once, Rogan's all over it and screaming like Glover got dropped. I just watched the punch and Glover didn't seem that hurt at all in my opinion. He seemed to slow his offense after that, but he wasn't on super wobbly legs or anything. Rogan acted like he was in survival mode and trying to just make it to the end of the round, but if you watch the fight without listening to Rogan, it doesn't look that way at all. Teixeira looked fine, he took a hard punch and didn't even really get knocked back much. I'm sure he was rocked a little, but that's probably the extent of it.

Funny how biased Rogan's reactions can be sometimes. "OH MY GOD TEIXEIRAS HURT! HE IS HURT MIKE! OH MY GOD IF FABIO CAN JUST FOLLOW UP BLAH BLAH" "Okay.. Teixeira drops Fabio.... He's hitting him with a lot of punches now.. hmm.." (paraphrasing, but you get the idea.) The commentary seemed cringe worthy in the first round to me.

Rogan has talked about that on his podcast. He says its not anything to do with liking one guy more, its just that when he expects it to go a certain way its hard for him to keep commentating and be interested, so when anything happens that's "off script" he goes nuts because he excited.

I suppose that makes sense. It was still kind of annoying though. Him also saying "Glover taking it to the ground now cause he doesn't want to take any more chances." was weird too. I think it had more to do with him throwing so many punches and landing nearly all of them. It would be naive to think that his arms weren't tired from that assault. Before that punch, Glover was dominating the fight on the feet and on the ground.

Before and after that punch landed he was dominating really. He definitely slowed down quite a bit, but was still dominating Fabio. He just had a Melvin Manheouf moment and got sloppy and too over confident in his stand up for a split second and got clipped.

That's true, and if anything, it was good that he got caught. To a lot of fans who don't follow him, he's unproven. Getting caught flush on the chin and still continuing to dominate after shows the guy can take a solid punch as well as give one.
