Fabio can't forget that he went to war and lost against .. Kyle Kingsbury, while Glover made him look like an amateur in every aspect of MMA. I'm sorry for using MMA math, but I'm so sure of Glover just mauling him and teaching him a lesson about over confidence. (Says the guy who seems over confident in Glover, heh.)

Fabio is rubbish and his striking is stupidly over rated. As has already been pointed out, he's good on the inside with body punches, but his tactics to get in on the inside are terrible. His defense is laughably bad. He's going to get clocked by a sweet right hook by Glover as he's trying to step in with a jab and end up getting brutally KO'd.

That's what his record says. The fight tells a different story.

Maybe, but even having a fight competitive enough to the point where you could possibly lose a controversial decision against a guy like Kingsbury shows a lot. I don't like to be disrespectful, but Kingsbury isn't a very good fighter.. At all. I'm not even sure how he got into the UFC considering he performed badly on the ultimate fighter and didn't make it far in the tournament. Wasn't he eliminated in the first round by Bader? Then in the finale, didn't he lose again against Lawlor? Must be a really nice guy to get all these chances..

Anyways, didn't mean to go off topic. If the off chance happens and Glover is at a disadvantage standing, he should have a big advantage on the ground. I don't think he will need to take it there, but the option is there.

Maldonado appears to have an iron jaw, so i doubt he gets knocked out.

He has got a good chin, gotta credit him on that, but I still think Glover will KO him.

He leaves his chin wide in the air when stepping in and Glover packs a lot of power.

He might not even have too. I could see him taking advantage of Fabio's poor defense by just dropping him and going for another submission.

I think a submission win is the most likely outcome.

I think Tex stands for a little bit. He then gets a TD when the chance arrives. Then he goes on to get a rear naked or arm triangle. Texeria is a very good grappler who started in BJJ. Maldonado works with the Nogs and appears to be decent, but he started as a pure boxer. Tex should have the wrestling, BJJ, and strength advantages.

This fight is pretty underrated. Too bad I've never seen Glover's older fights and he's 32 already. Likin' his backstory. He's a journeyman who fought his way into America to make a name for himself.

Can he rise up to challenge the throne...

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
