I'll have to see how well Gus has improved his wrestling, but if he has improved it he'd take Glover out imo. And if he's really made significant improvement the Jones fight just got real interesting. If Gus stops the take down Jones might be in trouble quickly.

Glover didn't show me anything that says he'd give Jones too much trouble, kudos to Bader for giving the hypetrain cause to worry in a big way though.

I think Glover has a better chance of beating Bones than Gus has... Mainly because Glover seems to have pretty good wrestling, whereas Gus has zero wrestling.

Not sure who I would go with in a Gus vs Glover match as of now but neither will give Jones much trouble.

The problem with that match is Glover's no spring chicken, he may retire before Gustafsson gets out of the hospital after Jones beats him half to death.

I'm inclined to agree, but I leraned from Weidman - Silva that in MMA anything is possible.

Well, lets get real here and Im a fan of Gus more than Jones but Sonnen looked like a bitch the way Jones intentionally beat him at his own game.

Glover cant stand with Jones, cant take him down, cant beat him in the clinch, Glover has no advantages over Jones whatsoever that I see anyway. Punching power is sexy unless you cant hit me then its JACK and IMO Jones would give Tex fits standing.

They both deserve the opportunity they both earned it and they both are going to get beat by jones. JDS is Jones biggest threat or hunt with his power.

Anything can happen but nobody at LHW SHOULD be able to beat Jones.

This post should be archived to demonstrate the general idiocy of MMA fans.


Apparently a guy can be a bust or overhyped if he's probably the 2nd or 3rd best LHW in the world...behind arguably the most talented fighter to date.

You are on some magic mushrooms if you think some unstoppable destroyer that is going to "give Jones too much trouble" is just going to pop up nonchalantly anytime soon. No one said this about Glover other than he was probably a top 10 LHW talent long before the big names stopped ducking him.


He also represents the toughest challenge to Jones currently, as like Pettis, hes dangerous everywhere. He has the stiker's chance of landing something big and the scrambler's chance. Jones leaves his neck in for a guillotine on a takedown it could be over, and I'm willing to bet Glover is more dangerous on his back than a guy like Vitor Belfort.

Not favoring him by any means, clearly when you do the sort of things Jones has done in this sport you deserve to be the favour it's over everyone, but I certainly wouldn't bet on Jones hiven the number of viable ways he could lose this fight.


I do love though, that every time a guy doesn't steamroll another to 10 guy you have people that have nothing to add but "Myeh! He can't beat the champion!"

Gus is a way stiffer fight for Jones than Glover, shouldn't be much debate about that.

Id be more excited to see Glover and Gus fight for the #2 spot than I will be to see either of them fight Jones.

Bader looked pretty steam rolled laying on his back before the end of the first round.

The uncertainty comes from getting tagged by Ryan Bader in the first place... more than one time too.

To his credit, he recovered and easily kept his composure; Bader has some power so he's obviously got a chin.

It just shows some holes in his striking defense.... and his lack of speed.

Doesn't mean he's not a top 10 LHW. Doesn't mean he's not a top 5 heavy weight... I just don't see the Glover Teixeira that showed up tonight, giving JBJ any issues.

Can an old dog learn a new trick?
