Glotex sounds like a tampon brand.

At the worst scenario, Tex has a puncher's chance. At his best, he will be more effective on his feet, and dangerous on his back if knocked down.

Either JJ wins by split decision or Tex wins before the 4th round.
Thank you! People keep knocking Glover's chin just because he got rocked by those shots. He showed a very good chin by only getting wobbled. Maldonado has excellent timing and placement of his punches, plus good power. Bader's a mediocre striker, but has 18 wheeler power. A punch on the button from either guy would flatline somebody with a weak chin.

4. He's gonna bring it to Jones
5. He has good offensive head movement.

Why he could be beaten
1. He's slow, and not light on his feet enough
2. He hasn't fought any legit kickers yet
3. He's fighting one of the worlds best
4. He's not fast enough to get in without taking some shots
5. He plods forward a little too much
This is a sharp analysis, and it explains why I'm picking Jones. Glover has beautiful striking and grappling technique. He does all the little things right, and he sticks to his gameplans with a fair amount of discipline. But I think he's too methodical to beat Jones.

Jones can do things that most other fighters can't , so I think the guy who beats him is going to need to pull a rabbit out of his hat. To me, the guy who beats Jones will need to be somebody like Anderson, Machida, Pettis, etc. Somebody who is a brilliant technical fighter, but is also extremely creative. It needs to be somebody who can throw combos at Jones that he's never seen before, and couldn't be prepared to defend against. That guy isn't Glover.

Also, this. Glo-tex and JoJo sound like suburban teenage girls who started listening to Drake and think they are "about that life" now.
