Glover is a BEAST. He has arguably the best boxing in the division, devastating power (19 wins, 17 finishes), excellent grappling ability, relentless pressure and the cardio to go with it AND has a sturdy chin.

He is absolutely a threat to Jon Jones.
not really, if he comes in with a double leg at all costs gameplan he could win it and we'll see how good jon's double leg Defense is pretty soon, but no I don't see him doing anything standing.

Where did I say he didn't have talent?

You bring up Cain, Cain wouldn't have been tired in that third round and struggled to put away a shot, aged, past his prime fighter. Is Glover a beast? Sure but Jones is too, and Glover's cardio didn't impress me and he hasn't shown me anything that makes me believe he can keep Jones one of the best wrestlers in MMA from dumping on his head.

The last guy who tried to beat Rampage at his own game got brutalised in the first round (Wanderlei). Standing right in front of Rampage and trading hooks with him is incredibly dangerous, and Glover easily beat him at it, that's highly impressive.

I think it's quite evident that most people have only followed Glover from his brief UFC stint, rather than followed him for most of his MMA career.

Again, I will repeat, Glover is a BEAST. If you can't see the talent this dude has, then keep thinking what ever it is you think he is, because he will prove you wrong.

Rampage is a legend of the sport. Love him or hate him, there's no denying his achievements and great moments throughout his career.

I don't agree but it's not like it's that outrageous of a statement.

It's 205, there's like 2 or 3 good boxers in the division.

Sure he's had some nice wins at some point but not legend worthy, anderson is a legend, gsp a legend, fedor a legend, henderson a legend and penn a legend, rampage hasn't done anything to stand out above the pack like these guys in my opinion.

Of course he has. Destroying Chuck twice in his prime. Once in Pride and then to claim the UFC LHW title from him with a brutal KO. Epic, unparalleled KO slam on Ricardo Arona. Fantastic wars with Wanderlei Silva. I don't need to ramble on, his achievements and fantastic highlights speak for themselves.

Rampage is and always will be a legend of the sport.

Glover's lack of a jab is disturbing. He is really predictable with his boxing, so I'm pretty sure Jones would come up with a gameplan to manage that. Jones has the striking ability to keep Teixeira on the outside, and Teixeira isn't fast enough to rush in and hurt Jones.

Gustafsson ( I think Gustafsson is overrated. Teixeira would beat him but Gustafsson still has better boxing ) and Jones have better boxing than Teixeira.

Now that Roflcopter mentioned it though, yeah Teixeira might be one of the top 3 boxers in the LHW division. The best? No.

The lack of good boxers in the LHW division is disturbing.

Edit: I do think Teixeira has immense talent but I don't agree with you saying he is a major threat to Jones. Jones would beat him within the distance.
