Jones doesn't have powerful shots (aside the elbows) but he hits you a lot more than the other guys in the division will.

That's not entirely true either. Machida had to be rocked pretty bad by that hook that dropped him to be caught in a standing guillotine. He doesn't have prime Rampage power, but his jabs don't back people up because of their confusing lack of power.

...I missed the vote on this thread because it was pretty obvious to me one way or another- Bader was gonna get smoked...and smoked he did. Nasty combination by GT dropping Bader hard. Glover is not going away. He's another brutal Brazilian who is just a fight or two away from getting a title shot. GT is pretty much the scariest dude out there at 205 right now. I don't see anyone---including legends calling him out. Nobody wants to face Tex...pretty understandable. Glover called out Rampage and schooled him convincingly. Glover Teixeria is becoming the man to beat at 205 with perhaps has one of the most complete games in MMA...

Does he? At least standing i find his workrate is pretty low these days (it used to be higher, but he also used to gas out against Bonner), on the ground he is a beast though, better workrate than most.

Gosh, Glover Teixeira's winstreak is even longer than Jones full MMA record. Just saying.

I wasn't saying Jones has weak punches, just that his approach to the striking aspect is different that to those with heavy hands. There was a debate about Jones' punching power.

Tex has fought almost twice the time JBJ has and Jones has almost the same amout of fights, not to mention he's accomplished more than Tex probably ever will.

Really? Even though he is right now very close to be #1 contender by his own merits?

"...probably ever will...". Give the guy a break here.

You actually think Glover has a chance of beating Jones and then dominating all the other top LHW fighters?

Glover has a LOOOONG way to go to catch up to what Jones has accomplished in his much shorter career.

I love all the Debbie Downers. People are fans of Glover and excited about his prospects. Yet we get "he has nothing for Jones!" "You think he can hang with Jones???" "Glover got rocked in 2 fights!!!".

Settle down people. Can't people get excited about a fighter that is exciting? Of course he probably won't beat Bones. We got excited for Diaz, Condit, and now Hendricks. Does it mean they were going to beat GSP? Bones is a P4P top guy, of course he is going to be favored against anyone at 205.

But Glover is well-rounded, and exciting fighter who is ALWAYS looking to finish, seemingly a humble and nice guy as well. He probably has a better chance than Gustaf or at least more ways to possibly win.

This place is hilarious. Anytime anyone gets excited about a fighter or root for a guy, people are quick to say "NO WAY HE BEATS SO AND SO!!!" WHo cares. Tex is one of the best guys to watch in MMA. And he isn't a dick. He should have more fans than he does. No one is claiming he is the next all time great. There is NO ONE at 205. People should be excited at what he brings to the division rather than write him off just because he will be a big underdog just like Rashad, Rampage, Gustaf, Machida and any other legend/elite fighter of the division was.

Getting excited about Glover and stating that he is the top contender, 2nd or 3rd best at LHW and possibly going to eclipse Jones' accomplishments are 2 very different things.

Some people have gone way too far overboard with their expectations of Glover and unfortunately he is due for a slide when he starts facing the big boys in the division.
