    if he earns it.

    or talks a lot of shit, causes a lot of controversy, and gives any reason for braindead fans to tune in. or whatever, you know.

    he has a lot of options at this point.

    I am obviously not saying an immediate rematch, but if he wins another couple against top 10 guys, I would give him another shot.
    I honestly do not see the logic here. I'm not trying to call you out on it but I would like to use it as an example of why I am against immediate and one not contender rematches. Again I love rematches. They can give us classics and lead to trilogies. However I think the UFC has over saturated us with rematches to the point of well he did good against the champ to now well he had a reason he lost.

    The eye pokes should have cost Jones a point. They didn't and it still wouldn't change the Dec. Glover's arm was hurt by a legal move. The palming....well I thought it was against the rules but if its not called when its obvious then that is the rules they are fighting by. Glover didn't even win a round. In a rematch he might win the whole fight. But I question whether he can earn a rematch at this point in his career. Rematches just don't mean shit if they are not earned or given because the boss scored it different than the judges.

    The UFC is the biggest MMA organization there is. Instead of giving out rematches when they don't like the outcome they should push there weight around to get the AC to change. Giving quick turnaround rematches cheapens everything from the first defense to the out come to the rematch to the title itself.

    I never said that with 4 or 5 dominant wins he could have a chance if he fights Jones again.
    I think it was evident that Jones is in another league and that he would beat Teixeira 10 times out of 10.

    I said that if he wins 4 or 5 fights in a dominant way, then maybe he could get another shot at the title, and he may get that title only if the champion is not Jon Jones.
    Imagine that after a series of events Rumble Johnson becomes champ. Well I think that Glover may actually beat Rumble.

    I kind of thought he had more of a shot before I watched the fight. As for when he gets another title shot, same as anyone else that loses a title fight that wasn't even close. He needs to work his way back up. The clocks tickin.

    When he earns it.

    Right now he shouldn't even been in the picture or discussion for the title fight. This is my issue with immediate rematchs and fighters getting lower ranked opponents to fight. His next fight should be a top 10 guy. If he wins then talk about the road back to the championship. If its a top 15 guys I could live with that but I would think the road would be a longer road back.

    I love rematches. When they are earned and done properly. There isn't a set number of fights for this though. If Glover goes out and was to KO DC it would hold a lot more weight than he if DEC Te Huna. He is definitely more than 1 win away from a title fight, so let him go fight get a win and judge it from there.

    I watched the first fight from my seats in the ACC , and plan on being there for the 2nd time Gus wins, but for real this time!
    On a side note the crowd building was mental during that fight and i would say it was split 50/50. I look forward to that atmosphere again.

    I am a fan of Glover's, but he should get back in line and work his way to another title shot. There was nothing about the fight that leads me to believe that any exceptions should be made by giving him a shot any sooner. He fought a good fight, but Jones dominated him.
