    I would love to see him fight for the Title next but if not, why not the winner of Rashad/Cheal? OR Hendo/Belfort winner. All 4 of those fighters, if they win would look like a great #1 contender match opportunity.

    I don't know what his stance is on fighting Lil Nog, but either that or Davis works best.

    IMO, looking at the LHW division and its overall depth, I think he's earned the shot, especially since we can't really tell where Cormier stands at LHW. I was somewhat surprised they booked Shogun against Te Huna if Dana isn't giving next dibs to Glover, since a Shogun/Teixeira matchup would've really done wonders to build his name prior to the shot. Hell, if they really wanted to book another fight to solidify Glover, why the hell not pull Sonnen/Evans and do Glover/Evans, which would again, solidify him against the top tier and if he loses, put up a still strong Rashad.

    My bet would be Phil Davis, but I don't really see Phil offering too much to Glover or a retaining Jones for that matter.

    If it wouldn't be against Davis it would be pointless. Honestly he is stepping in line infront of Davis but the UFC has never made sense when it comes to title shots anyway.

    I have been quite on this issue but where the hell does beating Ryan Bader earn you a title shot? Glover hasnt beat anyone to earn a shot I dont care how long his win streak is! Te huna Maldanado and Bader really? God damn Tito put Bader away. He should fight Davis and atleast earn a shot, damn UFC title shots becoming more of a Joke

    Bader was undefeated because he wasn't fighting anyone even close to the top 10.

    Dont fret fanboys... I completely understand your reluctance to have Glover fight Jones.. The longer Tex has to fight other people, the longer Jones gets to keep his title, right?
