I like how Glover has a questionable chin because he ate an all out hook and stumbled for all of .5 seconds. Some of you spew nonsense.

I think if this had been rampage vs glover it could have been a great way for rampage to go out. His wrestling would probably have stopped the takedowns and from what I've now seen I'd take rampages chin over glovers.


Fabio's a knockout artist who's only skill is punching. Glover took a flush left hook because he dropped his hands after thinking his opponent was dead in the grass.


The people questioning is standup is funny because he won the early standup exchanges and hurt Maldonado badly which lead to the ground and pound in the first place.

He only went to the takedowns when he fatigued his arms throwing over 100 punches and almost got caught.

And even late in the second round he was still winning all of the exchanges, he hurt Maldonado at the end of the round too.

This right here, thank you.

Maldanado showed a lot of heart, a lesser fighter wouldn't have made it out of that first round. That guy has a chin.

I've been following Teixeira's career for a long time, since he knocked out Sokoudjou even, back around the time Sokoudjou had a huge hype train rolling. I'm glad to see Glover getting so much exposure now that he's in the UFC. I'm also glad that he came out to Chuck's old walk out music. Good stuff!

What's next for Glover?! This guy is a beast that will be a challenge for anyone at 205.

and LoL at Glover having a questionable chin. He dominated this fight and he got barely hurt once by a guy who has legit hands and power (Glover won most of the exchanges on the feet), and he all of a sudden has a questionable chin? Some fans like to reach. Yeah, his chin is so bad that he hasn't been TKO'd in pro MMA since 2002. I don't see any knock out losses.. Hmm.... Moving on.

2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

Against a knockout artist at that.

People are acting like he got rocked by Phil Davis or something.

Yeah I agree, plus Maldonado has some power himself. I thought Glover looked like a total beast, I can see why most known names want no part of him.

Yeah, I think that shot would have dropped a lot of people worse than that for sure. Maldonado's hands are great - I remember hearing Kingsbury was pissing blood for 4 or 5 days after they fought.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Yeah, but James McSweeney beat up Maldonado for the first round. It was only until he broke his rib in the 2nd that the fight turned. I'm just stating my opinion.

QFT.

Watched Glover's previous fights and I don't remember him being rocked even once.

Fabio has solid power in his hands and a left hook that landed flush only wobbled Glover for less than a second. I think some were swayed by Rogan's commentary. Rogan made it sound like it was Edgar vs Maynard round 1.

Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones
