Yeah Glover would need a prayer to beat Jones. That said he's still a top 5 LHW...which is all the hardcore warwargoners were really claiming in the first place when we were so disgusted with Shogun's shameless ducking.

Juss overheard Rampage saying, "I'm a fan," to Glover. Good stuff! He's one of the few fighters who stood toe to toe with em. One other point is that Glover is pretty damn durable cuz he took some hard shots.

Won the 2nd imo, and caught glover plenty of times. Just because every time glover landed a single shot and rogan screams out loud because he's been told to promote Glover fans will buy the jones/glover ppv doesn't mean you have to believe him. It WAS close on the feet, I wouldn't be surprised if Rampage was landing more till the 3rd round where he gassed.

Just because he isn't where he used to be in the rankings doesn't mean he shouldn't drop to gatekeeper status etc.
Unless he's fighting for money there's no reason to stick around and be a punching bag.

The hell, he was dropped, hurt multiple times, had his back taken, was mounted and was all around dominated in a 30-27 losing affair.

Glover put the breaks on after the first, but you know he did mount him, take him down with ease, unload on his back. I think Rampage is still a valued member of the MMA community, he vs King Mo would be a great fight. But he'll never be in the top ten of the division again.

BTW Gustaf and Glover may be dialectically opposed strikers and I think that would be an awesome five round fight.

How many times did Rogan say Rampage was hurt? I thought Rogan was pretty biased for Glover sans the mandatory "Go watch Rampage's slam of Arona" comment.
