    Jon Jones can be criticized for a few things (mostly revolving around PR), but delaying the defense really shouldn't be one of them. It's actually crazy how active he is as a champion. Also his 2 delays (UFC 151 to 152, and UFC 170 to 171) has both been by 3 weeks only!

    If anything his longer layoffs, while taping TUF, or even this one (which aren't really long compared to other champions), has been a blessing in disguise as it allowed time for new contenders to grow. If Jones just kept fighting every 4 months like he did at the start and he plowed through everyone, he really wouldn't have any viable challengers left. Now we have 3 potentially competitive fights to look forward to: Glover, Gustafsson rematch and Cormier. Phil Davis nor a rematch with Rashad intrigues me though but others may differ.

    On topic I will go with Jones winning via submission. Like others have said in this thread Glover has juggernaut hands but his fights haven't impressed me that much.

    Yes. He wanted to spend the holidays with his family and heal up some nagging injuries from the Goose fight.

    Jones via whatever he wants. Glover hasnt been anything special in his fights with te huna, rampage and bader i dont see him holding up against the best 205 fighter of all time. I wont fully count Glover out, as crazy shit has happened this year but its Jones fight to lose.
