Glover Texeira is going to be UFC LHW champion eventuallly

The man is too damn good. Want to stand with him? get systematically wrecked even if you're Rampage Jackson who 99% of people shoot on and he took rampages bombs like they were nothing. His punches and strikes in general are scary he does damage and he lands them well. Want to take him down? not likely he is a former wrestler on the brazilian national olympic team. Not to mention he has really good bjj as well and is great from top position like barnett and knows his way around an arm triangle. oh and i forgot to mention the man's enormous probably cutting from 230 or 240.

Is this under the assumption that Bones moves to HW because he has zero shot of ever beating Bones. He might be able to get the belt if that happens I could see him beating several of the top guys.

....Machida didnt shoot on Rampage....jus' sayin'.

Glover is pretty nasty, I don't think he beats Jones but mother****er is he a violent son of a bitch, that ass whipping he dished out to Fabio was hardcore. I expect him to do the same to the Australian in a couple of weeks.

i agree, glover is tough as hell and was impressed how he went toe to toe with rampage. IMO jackson vs glover was the most exciting fight in january it literally had me on the edge of my seat. but yeah he has good striking, chin, wrestling, bjj hes very well rounded and definitely a threat.

I was actually thinking of posting a War Glover thread the other day. Am getting exciting to see him fight again. If he gets past Te Huna, I hope he gets a big name and #1 contender fight. Maybe vs. Rashad/Hendo winner.

Other than DC comfortably getting to 205, which looks like something he he isn't trying to do right now, I think Tex has the best chance.

Jon Jones would destroy Glover, you guys crack me up. I think Gus, machida, Jones and Mous all finish Glover.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

1. he fought Quentin Jackson not "Rampage" and 2. he has a punchers chance against Bones. Gus and Machida beat him too. Hes good but not a Champion.

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki
