I think sonnen has a better chance than glover and gustafsson and hendo now that I think about it, he's the only one good enough to stick with a constant gameplan to pursue a takedown and never give up and he also has a good chin, of course he may get obliterated but still sonnen I think has a better chance to make jon most uncomfortable rather than anyone else at 205.

1) Being punched in the face knocks confidence, which decreases performance. This is not applicable to everyone.

2) Anyone who can get punched by Hendo for 15 minutes then give it back for 10 more is either in amazing shape or abnormally tough and in good shape. Or both very tough and very well conditioned. I do not believe Shogun has been well prepared for all of his fights.

3) Rampage is a legend and was a great fighter. If you disagree that's fine but... Kinda weird. Where were you going with this anyway?

Confidence has nothing to do with cardio so I don't know why you say that, shogun only gave it back to hendo because hendo punched himself out and remarkably gassed even more than shogun due to the beating he gave him and thus was easier than dan hardy against gsp to take down so again not good conditioning, and i'll concede that some think page is a legend we all have our opinions on that even though I don't understand what significant things he has done in comparision with unanimously named legends like fedor and anderson.

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.
Glovers lack of a jab? Did you not watch the Rampage fight, he utilised the jab effectively throughout. A good stiff, straight jab every time Rampage tried to close the distance and start swinging. He often uses a straight jab to set up those brutal ripping hooks he likes to land on the inside. Closely watch.

Just because he may appear to be predictable with his style, get in your face and swing brutal hooks, doesn't mean it isn't exremeley effective. Nick Diaz' boxing is very predictable, but not many strikers are able to stop the onslaught. Same kinda thing with Glover, he's so effective with his boxing style.

I also don't think Jones is a better boxer. He's the better over all striker and is much more diverse and unpredictable, but stick the two of them in a boxing ring with boxing rules? I don't think Glover would have much of a problem. Jones uses his kicks as jabs, rather than his punches.

I see Glover having the power, endurance, boxing ability and relentlessly aggressive style as well as his top notch BJJ and wrestling game to easily give Jon the toughest fight of his career.

I will rewatch the fight later to see if Teixeira utilised the jab effectively. Stream was laggy so I felt like I was watching 5mins of fight out of 15. Teixeira hardly used the jab in the fights against Kingsbury and Maldonado though. It seemed like he was just throwing hooks and uppercuts all the time.

Teixeira's boxing may be effective against lesser fighters but it ain't gonna work against Jones. As you said, Nick Diaz has very predictable boxing. See how he got outstruck by Condit and I believe GSP will outstrike Diaz as well. Diaz always chases his opponent towards the cage and starts hurting his opponent. He keeps his stance narrow. Condit utilised a gameplan of circling and forcing Diaz to keep turning and become unable to work his boxing. What I'm saying is, a good gameplan will easily nullify Teixeira's boxing. Furthermore, we can trust Jones's camp to come up with a good strategy.

Well, just a different opinion. Wanna have a credits bet when the fight comes?

Edit: Somehow I wrote "Used the fight" instead of "Used the jab". My bad

Jones' boxing is pretty mediocre, he just masks his mediocrity with his ridiculous height, reach and eyepoking ability.


Gustaffson might have better boxing. Gustaffson vs Glover would be fun. Gustaffson has better movement but we all know he had suspect takedown defense and submission grappling and Glover could exploit that.

Rampage would have put a show on that kid a few years ago. Rampage just doesn't care anymore.
