Respectfully disagree. Glover hit him with two pretty damn hard shots.

And Glover wasn't even that badly hurt. He was backed against the cage, yes, but you could tell he was covering well and waiting for an opening. I think some people see what they want to see.

Not sure how to describe this fight. It was messy...haha.

Bader came out on all 12 cylinders trying to end it as quickly as possible utilizing his power weapons; right overhand bombs, upper cut was nice, high kick, takedowns, and his guillotines. Give Glover credit cuz he shrugged it all off for the most part which shows he is indeed a much higher caliber fighter on paper and in the Octagon. Is he the next big thing. Not sure. He's solid, very solid though with the exception of having some defensive holes because of speed imo.

If Glover was quicker he would have a much better chance. He's a bit slow and bulky, but fairly durable chin.

I like his statement about being too over confident, "being a wake up call."

Gustaf then Glover next. Glad to have caught the main event just in time.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Glover got stunned twice and didn't look that impressive but fantastic fight nonetheless. Bader looked great out there but made a mistake and got over aggressive. Definitely a top guy still.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Good to see a finish, would like to have seen a little more fight. Difficult to really gauge much from this one.

A little shaky, because like Glover himself said he got too confident. And probably not comfortable with all the hype the UFC is pushing behind him.

But at the end there he was blocking most of those shots. I am talking right before he knocked Bader down. He was blocking those and rolling with the punnches. He basically baited Bader in trying wild looping punches, then he tagged him 1-2 accuratly. The start was iffy, but he showed that he is definatly a good wrestler. Maybe not enough to stuff a Jones TD. But as formatable as anyone else is with the wrestling.

Wasn't flawless. But it showed many key things.
- Glover is a professional and doesn't wilt or get crazy when he gets in trouble.
-Glover can wrestle pretty well, it isn't just false hype. He is a damn good wrestler and strong.
- Glover isn't content with just KOing top 10 guys in the first round. He and his training partners know he hasn't shown even close to his best.

I hope people finally start to realize the Glover would be mercilessly slaughtered by JBJ. JBJ would get the takedowns and control the ground, he would control the standup action, in short, he would win the fight however he chose to. Tex is a great fighter, and while he deserves a title not, he is no real threat to JBJ.
