"jones can't stop glover".
I hate the Brazillian hype train, because way too many people drink from the train!
Glover almost got stopped by bader.
RYAN BADER almost beat glover.
Jon Jones will bury him where he stands!
And i fuckin' hate Jon Jones.
That's where I stand as well.
Bader, Phil Davis, and Sonnen are likely the weakest strikers near the top 10 at LHW and Bader checked his chin twice.
I don't see this train going much further than one more fight.
Champion : Jon Jones
1 Alexander Gustafsson
2 Glover Teixeira
3 Lyoto Machida
4 Phil Davis
5 Rashad Evans
6 Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
7 Dan Henderson
8 Gegard Mousasi
9 Chael Sonnen
10 Mauricio Rua
Look at those rankings. Who else do you give a shot to? The only fight I would say that makes sense is Davis/Tex. After that maybe Dc if he can cut the weight. But the entire division is a post apocalyptic wasteland of contenders. We'd need a Thunderdome to sort it out.
After disposing of Teixeira and Gustafsson I think it's time for Jones to move up.
He's clearly owned the division at this point.
If Bones can get a quick win against Goose and come out of it healthy, he fights Tex NYE or Super Bowl time
Meanwhile DC beats the brakes off of Nelson, calls out Bones, and goes on the Karen Carpenter diet.
That should set up a fight between the two around late spring early summer.
The only wrench I see thrown in is A Silva winning against Weidman and getting set up with Jones for one of those Super Fight things.
Which would give time for DC to properly cut the weight and maybe even have a fight at LHW before getting a title shot (crazy thought, I know).
