Yes.... while Glover may be better able to exploit the hands of someone like Shogun or Forrest, because of his ability to deal with Kicks... His main offense comes from his hands... playing right into rampage's game.
Coordination comes in all shapes and forms... People will just assume that if a fighter has slow or lackluster footwork that they dont train their footwork... It may or may not be the case... Rampage could have tried to improve his movement or he could have been the lazy bum everyone wants to believe he has been, I really dont know... I have seen both sides of the coin... its odd to see what people believe to be "skill" and what to be natural.
