I cant help think that Rampage not only hasnt improved his fighting ability in the last few years, but has in fact, got worse.

Glover did a good job of fighting the fight on his terms.

As long as Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva are still around, Quinton Jackson can be as well. None of them will fight for the title again.

I guess it was, because Maldonado caught him by surprise. Those shots you don't see coming are the most dangerous. Against Jackson Teixeira was more cautious and could prepare better for the shots.

He reminds me of Tito, when Tito was the bigger fighter he was a champion but when they started giving Tito HW caliber fighters he went on his losing streak. I think Quinton is a little bit better than Tito, I think he's more durable and his boxing is much better than Tito's wrestling. Glover/Bader/Jones/Griffin were just to big for him they could exploit their reach, power and strength and that's why he lost.

I actually felt Rampage fought pretty well especially compared to his recent fights. His boxing looked decent he moved his head well and put together some good combinations. Glover though really impressed me the way he walked through Rampages combos and was the only one seemingly doing any legit damage in the stand up. I enjoyed the fight I thought it was hard fought till the finish and quite exciting because both guys have knock out power. I think Glover is ready for a real big fight next he should get Rashad or Gustaffson or at least Bader for his next opponent. Rampage I hope continues fighting hes always fun to watch, I'd like to see him in Bellator fighting in one of there tournaments or especially taking on King Mo.

Just gave the fight a rewatch. Fighting against Glover must be like trying to wrestle you dad. He's got that strength that makes his opponents look like little kids and it was shocking to see how he could do whatever he wanted with Rampage.

I think if Glover got a shot for the title he'd have to chase Jones down since I think the champ would spend a lot of time running away and throwing kicks from the outside.

It was pretty insane how much stronger Glover looked. Rampage held own in the clinch against Jones and stopped a few take downs. Rampage looked like he had never wrestled before against Glover.

People go on and on about how such and such would struggle with Jones, but if we scheduled fights on that logic, guys like Silva, GSP, and Jones would have zero challengers.

Glover dominated. He didn't rush into anything, but do people forget who he was fighting? Rampage is known for landing in wild exchanges. Glover fought smart and Jackson had nothing for him.
People only see what they want to see. Glover did dominate Rampage in every facet of the game. For those complaining that Glover wasn't so impressive because he couldn't finish an "over the hill" Rampage (LyotoLegion), can you please ask yourself when some one finished Rampage within three rounds? The last time Rampage was finished in under three rounds was 8 years ago. Jon Jones himself couldn't put Rampage away in three rounds, and methodically picked Rampage apart and dominated those rounds similar to how Glover did, yet I don't see you people complaining about Jones' performance against page.

Had it been a five round fight, and given Rampages' conditioning in the fight and body language, it would have been highly likely Glover would have finished him in the latter two rounds.

Glass chinned Rashad wouldn't last two rounds with Glover. Stylistic nightmare for Rashad. He hasn't got the grappling to lay and pray Tex, and he hasn't got the striking or the chin to trade with him either. Bring it on.

That's because Jones in altitude no less didn't look tired.

Glover was looking a little tired towards the end and yes it was a grueling pace, Rampage was throwing big shots and Glover was returning and landing way more of them, but I already knew Glover was an animal and Rampage was tough so I wasn't exactly surprised, Rampage has been done for years. But you seem awfully confident Glover can somehow keep one of the best wrestlers in MMA if not the best wrestler in MMA from dumping him on his head and cutting him open and will make it a "five round war" and considering Glover looked tired after a three round beating that he mostly administered I'm not exactly down to jump on that train.

No one is denying Glover dominated Rampage, but that's just it, he dominated Rampage, a guy who mentally checked out years ago.
