Plus there's actual beef between the 2.
It is impressive.

However Jones vs Gus I + Manuwa fight tops that.

Instant rematch or he earns the shot back. Manuwa is not the answer. Trust me I too wanted the rematch but DC earned the shot, not Gus.

So he deserved an instant rematch, but because he didn't get one (thanks to Jones wanting Glover) he hasn't earned one after beating Manuwa?

Your logic is fucking backwards my man. I get that you prefer the DC fight but that shouldn't cloud your judgement.

I didn't prefer the DC fight, I wanted the Gus fight. My point is we are getting the fight that's deserved because DC earned it.
Gus and DC only have 1 top 10 win at LHW. DC was wrecking HW and dropped down. He has 2 wins and that's 1 more win than Gus.

Just because the fight I wanted didn't happen, doesn't mean the replacement isn't the rightful contender because he is.

So true.

But, I'm still going to gloat and act like it wasn't a perfect match-up.
