    Phil is unquestionably #3 in the rankings while Glover is what? 7? MMA fans are too fickle about rematches and, for that reason, many contenders don't have to earn their way up simply because they are a different face.

    Gustafsson was interviewed recently by BT Sport, and said he thinks Jones is trying to avoid a rematch.

    "If I look at Jones' perspective I don't think that's strange, because he tries to avoid me," said Gustafsson. "Everyone can see that. I can see that. He does what it takes to not fight me. For myself, it doesn't make any sense. I think DC is a great fighter. I respect him and I think he's a top contender, but I think he has to have another fight or two before he will fight for the title. The only thing that makes sense, in my mind, is me versus Jones next."

    When Anthony Johnson kicks his head off, I hope to never hear from Phil again.
    A tiger never loses sleep over the opinion of sheep.

    Phil Davis thinks Jon Jones may still back out of UFC 172 title defense
    “He may not fight at UFC 172,” Davis told MMAjunkie. “It’s not too late for him to back out of this one. It’s happened before.”
    “I’m ready for a title shot whenever it’s available,” Davis said. “If he happens to back out of this fight for whatever reason, I’m willing to take on Glover Teixeira for an interim championship.”
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    “It’s not too late for him to back out of this one. It’s happened before.”
    and when has Jones ever pulled out of an already scheduled fight...?

    It'll be hilarious if Jones backs out again

    This fight has been delayed three times now, and I seriously doubt that it was Glover's decision.

    so the UFC champion - who has defended the belt 6 times in 4 years (about to be 7 and possibly 8 by the end of the year) had a fight pushed back a few months even though it was never officially scheduled to happen at any time just rumored....shame on him
