3 more seconds in the 4th round Glover would of been finished for sure Jones was beating his ass at the end of the 4th

Well he won a controversial decision in Brazil vs. Machida, so I don't know what he's thinking necessarily. Maybe he's just planting seeds in the judges minds.

Why are there multiple people assuming Glover is a poor wrestler just because he's Brazilian? The guy has been training with wrestlers in the US for a decade and is has wrestling accolades (Brazilian champ) to his credit. He has all of the tools to be a nightmare for Phil Davis, he just has to be sharp and make sure he's not outpointed by long range body kicks and jabs.

How many times have fighters said they're going to rip eachothers hearts out, only to pussyfoot around trying to eek out a decision?

He's catching flack because he's complaining about the judging of Brazil being unfair when he actually was awarded a close decision there

Yeah I think he's just being realistic.

I think a big reason he hasn't been finished yet while fighting Rumble or Machida is because he already does fight scared. He commits to his punches less than anyone I've ever seen in high level MMA. He's always ready to react by rolling away from a punch because he's never really committed to throwing his own.

So IMO he already does fight scared against basically anyone he can't take down.

He still moves like a robot. Needs that gymnastics and ballet time.

Well we all know a decision ala Machida is pretty much his only hope. His striking isn't very good, certainly not better than Glovers and even if he can get Glover down, I don't see him keeping him there for long.

He is just being realistic. He doesn't really have the ability or tools to finish.

Some fighters are like that, for example Jon Fitch.
