Glover is a cool dude as well as being an absolute beast. I'm on that wagon 100%.

I see him as a much bigger threat to Jones right now than either Gus or Davis, and if he goes through Page as easily as I expect him to he may well get that shot.

Yeah I was very impressed with him. I think he was outshined by Maldonado and his chin of steel, but he killed the stand up, killed the ground game, and didnt even look close to gassing despite throwing punches non stop. I'm on the bandwagon.

Rampage isn't good enough.

Hendo Vs Jones
Gus Vs Shogun
Machida Vs Rampage
Glover Vs Davis

From what I saw I don't think Glover beats Rampage. Rampage has a damn good chin, real power in his hands, and good takedown defense. I just don't see an area that Glover has a real advantage.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Glover wants it though, and with him being Liddell's protege, he'd be motivated beyond belief to "avenge" Chuck's losses to Rampage.

Some times, the heart and mind over come, and Rampage is a notorious slacker, the guy that beat Dan Henderson and Chuck Liddell in 2007 is dead, and he isn't coming back.

Heart and mind aside, Glover is still technically superior to Rampage. He has better hands, more power and a much better ground game.

Glover is a beast, and I agree with sports nerd about him being a much bigger threat over the likes of Gustaffsson. I think he'd maul The Mauler.

everything except his chin? what does Rampage excel at really? The UFC version of Rampage is slow and plodding and just throws hooks.

Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler
