    What's your motivation for this? And would you say he's earned a shot after Forrest?

    While i do not think anyone is a pussy for refusing to fight their friend i do admire his attitude. A lot of people will say "anyone, anytime" not everyone means it.

    But I guess it makes sense... he avoids Jon Jones' takedowns early on in their fight, one of the few to stop his takedowns... then gets taken down at will against Ryan Bader in his next fight...
    Jones didn't really try all that hard to take Rampage down early, though...whereas Bader was trying to take him down like his life depended on it. He did look better against Jones, though, but so? Rampage is a very inconsistent fighter. Looked great against Chuck and Hendo, didn't look so good against Forrest. Looked pretty good against Wandy, didn't look so good against Jardine...didn't look so good against Hamill, fought allright against Jones and then looked horrible against Bader.

    Shogun didn't look near as good against Jones as he did against Machida imo and he made 0 excuses for that fight, and that was after coming off of a knee surgery. The only thing close to an excuse I have heard Shogun say is him saying he didn't prepare for Forrest enough in their first fight.

    I do not expect Rampage to be back to the form when he fought Hendo or Wandy, so I don't think Glover should be at a title shot with that win. If Rampage was in that form, I'd expect him to knock Glover out anyways.

    Lyoto would kill Glover.

    Yes, with the way Jones has been handleing the division. They need some new challengers. The problem is getting these guys to the title shot....

    I have both Goose and Glover losing to Shogun and Rampage.... They are very solid top10 LHW's imo, but cannot get past the best.... that Jones has already beaten.

    Lets hope Sonnen gets past Forrest and gets a title shot after that.

    But if Shogun and Glover both win or both lose, a Glover/Shogun fight would be a huge win for fans. Oh wait...

    Or he could lose like Machida did. He might win a UD but I highly doubt he will be steam rolling anyone.

    Agreed

    Glover v Lyoto would be fun to watch, but if they dont want to fight, that is ok with me cause thier are a few nice fights for Glover at 205

    I don't think that it is in the best interests of the UFC to book Glover vs. Gus. It looks to me that they are avoiding this at all costs in the same way that they did with Cain///JDS until one of them had a title shot.
