Jones was ploding, Glover was standing still

I'm not taking anything away from Jones, props to him for taking away his opponent's weapon.
Of course it had an effect, but even before that he wasn't actually doing that much. It was very early on and it surely limited the chance of a one punch knock out, but it happened due to Jones enforcing his game plan on Glover, forcing him against the cage.

Hell, the fight ended with Jones doing a Roy Jones Jr, it was clear he didn't feel threatened.

I don't disagree with you, Jones had a great gameplan. I believe that if not for the shoulder crank, Jones still would have dominated. Who knows though, maybe we would have at least seen his chin get cracked a couple times.

Bones is pretty fast. Not as fast as a Machida. Can't remember the speed difference against Rashad but Rashad is generally pretty quick.


Glover looked slow as hell, although definitely not as slow as Rampage.

Glover has a set of moves he does well but he has no unique counters. If someone watches film on someone and knows how to counter all their skills then your already beaten. You have to watch your own fights study your opponents skill and where they will attack you and where you can bait them and counter. If you want to win in the future you have to be not only physically a skilled fighter but have a gameplan that can allow you to at least alternate winning rounds to have a chance.

Jones is a plodding fighter who just uses that hand-on-face/forehead technique to keep fighters away from him.

The only time he looks fast is when he does a spinning elbow.

I was exaggerating but my perception was that most of the time Jones was just circling around Glover and he was just kinda standing there and would react instead of being proactive.

Certainly not the fastest but he can quickly explode in your face and then it's lights out. Works well for him, Jones is just on another level compared to the rest of the LHW division.
