Liza is right and you as well as others just don't understand it. There is no proof that Teixeira is the 2nd or 3rd best LHW fighter. He might be the 2nd or 3rd best LHW fighter that hasn't already lost to Jones but that doesn't make him the best of the rest. He hasn't faced any of the best yet, his best wins are Bader and Jackson who are barely top 10 fighers now. And Teixeira didn't even look that good against Bader...
I don't see why Davis is mentioned there..but fair enough.

It's just odd given how pitiful guys like Henderson and Evans have looked as of recent that somehow Glover looked worse.

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.
Not really. Gus has no real clear method of victory. His power is pretty overrated and he doesn't even use it anymore...he used to sit down on his punches and throw with bad intentions until he turned into this fancy foot work Cruz wannabe prancing around the cage potshotting.

And his wrestling and overall grappling is still really bad. At least Glover can threaten Jones on the mat or with a guillotine.

Roflcopter, no offence, but do you understand anything about this sport?

You do?? Oh, then why do you talk about Alexander as if he is a ballerina when in fact he is a great great fighter who convincingly beat back to back idiots like Rua and Thiago Silva. They have not been the same since their mauling.

I don't know how Bader lost to this overrrated Teixeira, but I do know that it wouldn't happen again. Had Bader used his superior intelligence and developed a submission on Teixeira the moment he busted his weak chin, we would be seeing a worthy strapping LHW contender, but now we have to hear all this ringing about how this bum, who got his butt kicked by Ed Herman, is going to be the one to beat Alexander. No, this will not happen. Alexander is ten years younger than Texeira, and you Rolf think he has less chance of beating Jones?

Typical.

I have no doubt he has a tight bottom game but that's the last place anyone wants to be when its Jones on top of them, IMO its just too risky.

Its a styles make fights opinion, I see glover as one hell of a fighter though.

As far as Bader goes Tito in his twilight put him on ice, nuff said IMO.

Just seen the fight. Not read through this thread.

The counter combo that put Bader down was utterly magnificent.

That is all.

That first round was garbage, it was so so so less significant than most haters make it out to be but they wont stop latching onto the fight because it gives them hope..

What exactly did he show us? That Jones can beat him up striking, rock his world with a mean punch and step in and coke him to death?

Jones was tooling him in the second and Machida landed a whopping 8 strikes total in the first round, and you think that show Jones has weaknesses striking?

If you want to analyze Jons striking you have to look at some other fight because Machida didn't do shit to Jones.
This showed us that JBJ can get absolutely rocked by Lyoto "LOL" Machida. Dude might as well have shouted out "Here I am! Du-du-du-duuu". The Bones era will be over sooner than any of you think.....

First Bader was like "I'm gonna hit ya!" but then Glover was all "How about I hit you back!" and I was like "Dayyyyyyyyyum!".

You realize you are not helping Gus cause with such statements, don't you?
