Said it before and I'll say it again, Glover is the only legitimate threat out there right now at LHW for Jon Jones. This guy is a BEAST. He has it all. Power, technical boxing, slick grappling, sturdy chin, cardio.

Jon Jones vs Glover will be a five round war. Count on it.

I was hoping for a finish, but I'm not surprised that it went the distance. The fact that Glover dropped Rampage is impressive to me. He should get the decision win and avenge his mentor Liddell's loss. He utilized everything so well in this fight. His punches, kicks, and take downs looked good. He took some good punches as well so his chin shouldn't be considered suspect anymore. Some may say his stand up became predictable, but I think he limited himself because he knows Rampage hits so hard. Jones at times even ran away from Rampage, so I wouldn't hold it against Glover too much for limiting his stand up.

1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

Plus he's an in the pocket type of fighter much like Rampage who's pretty slow. The LHW title holder has too much reach. Now if Glover had speed it would be a very good fight.

Two for two with my bets. One more to go! Good fight to bow out from. It was pretty damn entertaining.

I don't understand the logic of some people calling for Rampage to retire? :s I hear ALOT of people saying Glover is the last hope to dethrone Jones, yet Rampage goes 3 rounds in a fight that was relatively close with no-one close to a finish and he needs to retire? Just because he isn't where he used to be in the rankings doesn't mean he shouldn't drop to gatekeeper status etc.

The fight really wasn't close at all. Rampage was out classed in every aspect of the fight. He hung in there all right, but hanging in there doesn't make it a close fight. He hung in there for almost four rounds with Jon Jones.

No post fight talk with Rogan from Tex or Rampage?

Lol. Rampage raised his hand to signal he thought he won. Who does he think he's fooling?
