Heard on twitter that Teixeira doesn't want to wait for winner of Sonnen-Jones. He wants to have another fight soon.

Teixeira vs Gustafsson for number 1 contender?

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

You are the worst poster around. Amazing how you always find opportunity to offend other posters. Clearly you have no idea how to behave in a public forum and respect people. I hope your recurring bad attitude ends before mods get tired of it. Most are tired already.

Yeah he said that on the post fight show.

The way I see it, there's Glover, Bader, Phil, and Shogun all free to fight with Jones/Sonnen, Machida/Hendo, and Gus/Mousasi booked.

With Feijao suspended, match those four up. Glover/Bader and Davis/Shogun or Glover/Davis and Bader/Shogun.

Like most of us, I'm excited about Teixeira. But let's keep things in perspective here folks. For starters, he hasn't beaten anyone of consequence in the UFC yet. Rampage is no longer an elite LHW. He's turned almost purely into a boxer, and his motivation has been questioned for years now. Second, his gas tank worries me a little. Don't get me wrong, it's good. But it's not as good as it's been advertised his past two fights. He clearly slows down considerably after the first round. And last- but certainly not least- when he's having success, he gets overzealous, let's his guard down, and let's his opponent get back into the fight. This happened against Maldonado too and he was murdering him. This is what worries me the most about him. He's well-rounded. He's a threat. But there are holes in his game.

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?
I never said Glover will beat Jones, simply that the two of them will have a five round war. I'm confident Jones will emerge victorious, I just think Glover will be his toughest test by far.

Bader is a notch below Teixeira though. That submission loss to Ortiz and getting knocked out against Machida really threw him way down the ladder. He might have to win one more fight in convincing fashion before he should be considered to be in the "title mix". A win against Bader won't really help cement Teixeira's title shot. With the Rashad-Lil Nog fight being next week, Teixeira can fight the winner to determine the number 1 contender. Teixeira-Rashad would be a good test of Teixeira's wrestling and cardio.

Davis's only loss is to Rashad but he was totally nullified in that fight and made to look like an amateur. Davis-Shogun sounds just about right considering their position in the division. Don't think either is near a title shot though, unless Davis gets a rematch against Rashad and does a lot better.

What I hope to see is:

Rashad vs Lil Nog with Rashad coming out on top.
Winner of Machida-Hendo getting the title shot in August/Sept.
Gustaf vs Mousasi takes place. (I hope Mousasi wins).
Jones vs Sonnen happens with Jones winning.
Jones fights winner of Machida-Hendo in August/Sept.
Rashad vs Teixeira in May.
Winner of Gustaf-Mousasi and Rashad-Teixeira fight in August/Sept to determine number 1 contender.
Winner of that fight gets Jones on the NYE card.


A little too much to ask for? Teixeira would deserve that title shot if he gets a win over Rashad though. Gustaf would be asking for the title shot if he beats Mousasi. Whole thing might not work out.

@GrappleRetarded: To each his own then. I think Rashad is a bigger challenge than Teixeira though.

Edit: I realise I use the word "though" a lot. Really good word to use though. Or maybe I'm just using it wrongly.

Ah yeah I forgot about Rashad, that would be a great test for Glover depending on if he wants to keep fighting at 205 or go fight Anderson.
