    Glover is open to being a stand-in opponent for Blachowicz vs Adesanya but thinks a great performance could leap him to the title shot and he's not overlooking Thiago but thinks he will finish the fight.

    I agree and think he's a big threat to Jan. Against Izzy, he may get knocked out due to Izzys speed advantage.

    Rumble won't be available until March/April at the earliest. I would also like to see him at heavyweight instead of vs a guy he knocked out easily.

    Respect to Glover for still competing at a high level at age 41. But Father Time gets everyone, he's living on borrowed time right now. If Thiago is 100% healthy and back to fighting how he was before the injury, this one may not end well for Glover. 100% of his focus should be on Saturday.

    Just give us jones vs Rumble at HW ufc.

    Honestly the winner of this is getting screwed winner here should be fighting Jan. If Israel wins he's probably fighting Whittaker next so it's going to be forever for their shot.

    I think this is why he needs to be impressive and show that he deserves the title shot ASAP. He’s seemingly found the fountain of youth and has looked the best he’s probably ever looked in his UFC career, but the more time that passes by, the less of a chance he has at winning the title...

    There was a time years ago where Jim Miller looked almost unstoppable for 2 years, but he was never able to fight for the title during that run. Not long after he lost a step and could no longer perform at that level.

    Equally one bad fight and he begins to stare down the barrel.

    I’m going with Santos. I think we are going to see a new animal after his time off. Glover has had some good wins recently but overall he is in his decline, age doesn’t lie. He isn’t pre USADA Randy.

    Glover has both never looked young and not aged a day in the past 10 years. Also, seems like a genuinely good dude. Even more so than others - Wonderboy seems a bit brainwashed, Whittaker is holding back and Stipe is just serious about his work, but a dudebro during off hours.

    Glover looks so slow these days. I just cant picture him winning this fight. I think this may be leading to the end of the road for Teixeira.

    Agreed, this is his last shot at it. If he's ever gonna get another title shot, he needs a big W over Thiago on Saturday.

    I disagree that this is the best he's ever looked in his UFC career though. When he first came into the UFC, he was an absolute killer. He entered the UFC on a 15 fight winning streak, and won his first 5 UFC fights with some impressive finishes over decent competition. A lot of people actually thought he had a shot vs Jon. His recent 4 fight win streak is nice but the competition hasn't been that great and he looks noticeably slower to me. He is the underdog vs Thiago and rightfully so, but I'm definitely not counting him out.
