    Right there is a ton of evidence pointing to Gus winning that rematch, he was so close to winning the first time and has looked like a world beater ever since

    Here's the problem with Gus and all of his fans don't understand. This dude talks about retiring or leaving the sport almost every other fight. I believe that's why he can only muster up great once in a lifetime performances only some fights. He doesn't have a champion's mindset. That's not to say he's not a really good fighter. I just wouldn't bet my money on Gus winning and keeping a UFC title. Bellator maybe, but not UFC gold.

    Rumble vs Gus 2 would be interesting if it's for the belt and if Johnson beats DC.

    Cain was so close to beat JDS in the first fight...

    Maybe he didn't look like a world beater since, but he looked better against Cormier than Rumble did

    Gus & Manuwa both said they wont fight each other.

    Manuwa should get TS and Gus loser of DC/Rumble or Jones.

    He's 2-4 against people of African descent. Not good, but not great.

    I think Gus should actually be targeting a DC rematch. Should DC beat Rumble and keep the belt, and Gus beats Glover, I could see him making a strong case for a title shot. The division is very thin outside the top 5, and he had an epic battle with DC that he lost by razor thin decision. There's a built in story line. And if Gus were to rematch and beat DC, they could set up Gus vs. Jones 2 for the belt which also has a built in story and would be epic.

    Having said that, I do think Gustafsson could beat Rumble in a rematch if he utilizes his underrated wrestling. That's kind of been Rumble's weakness and Gustafsson showed he can wrestle against Jones, DC, and Jan. Here's hoping that he looks like a killer again against Glover!

    This. People only look at his wins and losses and hate on him because he doesn't have a lot of top 10 wins. But they ignore the performances he put on vs. Jones and DC who are the two best in the division. He came incredibly close to beating both guys. His performances indicate that he is just a hair below Jones/DC/Rumble's level, and yet people hate on him. He's also a classy guy who shows a lot of heart in his fights. I honestly don't get the hate.

    I like. But instead of just giving Jones the winner of DC/Gus, make him fight Rumble in a comeback fight to see who fights the DC/Gus winner. That's the fight we all want to see.

    If Gus and Jones win, it's Gus/Jones 2.
    If DC and Jones wins, it's the rematch we've waited on forever.
    If Gus and Rumble win, we get a rematch we'd all like to see again.
    If DC and Rumble win... well shit. We don't want to see that for the third time, I guess feed Manuwa some fighters to beef up his resume and put on DC/Manuwa.

    Either way, that's a lot of conjecture, but it is nice seeing the top 5 or so guys in the division hit their stride. If only the 10-15 fighters could step it up.
