    Also Bader has a good shot off knocking off Glover. I can't remember the last time Glover fought anyone like Bader. I think Bader might be able to take him down and pull out a decision.
    Are you for real?

    I agree with most of what you are saying the point i wanted to point out was that the ufc didnt give vitor the fight instead of machida like someone had implied.
    Very few even wanted that fight due to not having enough time to train. That wasn't a fair deal to either party and Machida shouldn't have gotten dinged for that.

    If you're saying the Vitor fight wasn't as disgusting as the sonnen bout, I agree with you. At least Vitor was a former LHW champion, sonnen had never fought at 205 in the UFC. It's the perfect example of what I mean when I say zuffa whores titlefights to guys they know are marketable.

    No offense, but your predictions are generally terrible.

    I think Bones keeps winning until DC knocks him out in the first round. I think DC is gonna make Bones look bad. The funny thing is that two of my buddies are huge Bones and Anderson fans, I told them that Weidman was the man to knock off Anderson, and I've been saying the same about DC. They have been taking me a bit more seriously ever since their indestructible hero went down.

    Difference is that GSP had an educated opinion because he had trained with Weidman.

    Noone else implied it. You thought you were making a unique point against me, whereas I was refuting the claim you made that Jones has already cleaned out the division when you said "Who really deserves a title shot at this point". Well, that obviously depends on the rankings.

    Like I said, Gus and Glover are new challengers. Machida is in the wings after getting dicked around by Dana White. There's plenty of options for the next two years.

    Goose is going to KO Jones in the first round.

    Jon Jones the former champion will get a rematch before Glover gets a title-shot.

    Don't see anything indicative of Gus being able to KO a top 10 fighter.

    That being said if the LHW belt wasn't so clusterfucked by the sham fights, I'd have said Tex needs to face Machida, Henderson or Rua after Bader. But I'm fine with him getting the win with a decisive victory over Bader. I've been a fan of Lyoto for years, but that fight with Hendo was a draw, not a rematch-earning win.
