    "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.

    Gus also skipped machida. I really don't agree with that match. It will look like Gus vs Davis 2 except Jones has better striking than Davis. Gus should have fought a good wrestler before jones to show he's improved his wrestling defense

    I understand what you're saying. Gus probably should have had one more fight before his title shot against Bones. Tex should probably have one more fight against a top 10 fighter. The problem is those are the two closest fighters to title contendership.

    LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT
    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.

    Chael Sonnen after he squeaks out a boring win against Rashad Evans, come this is the UFC and all.

    Absolutely, but I think the UFC still wants to match him up with DC or A.Silva. I think it depends on timing.

    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).

    ah...but did you whine this much when Jones got a title shot without a top 10 win? Or when he got to face sonnen who had never even won a fight at 205?

    The LHW division has gone from one of the deepest to one of the shallowest in the UFC.
