I doubt he would employ such a tactic. In recent years he has preferred to plod around the cage, defend take downs and try to knock out his opponent, a tactic which has been largely unsuccessful for a long time now. He is set in his ways and I highly doubt he will make any drastic changes to his style at this time.
As far as the fight with Glover goes, I think it will largely be contested on the feet with Glover mixing in a few take downs attempts of his own. Glover by decision would be my prediction.
Always appreciating the fine workings of Sakara, Almeida, Gonzaga
