    this guy used to train with the ICEMAN and now he is taking ice baths with kids in a garage and picking cucumbers in his backyard. what the hell happened to this guy?? remember when joe rogan would talk about him nonstop "if only this guy could get his visa, he has a 30 fight win streak and is the best fighter out of UFC blahblahblah" how can anyone take glover seriously while RUMBLE is training at a world class gym??????

    What happened to him is that he's in a number 1's contender fight...

    TS needs knives shoved underneath his finger nails for even making this stupid thread. Glover isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    He's finished his last three opponents and is in a number one contender fight so he is clearly doing something right.

    I like Glover he seems like a real down to earth dude if he were fighting any other LHW he would back him... But Rumble gonna bury him in his own garden use him as fertilizer... Just having fun no butt hurting

    Glover IS a top guy. His record speaks for itself.

    You can't garden as a hobby and run a MMA related business on the side while training MMA?

    The hell is wrong with you TS.

    You heard TS Glover is terrible. He is doing non MMA related stuff but Rumble is MMAing non stop. Even when he is dating a girl he might MMA her! LOL kidding no fighter bashing. I like Rumble and Glover. Should be a great fight and Glover has enough experience to drag him to deep waters. I wish this was a 5 round fight.

    I think your attempt to shit on Glover only strengthens the argument as to how good he actually is. Simply put, yes, Glover is top LHW. TS knew that though and is just being a turd.

    GT is a top guy still. One of the best fundamentally. He can hang with any LHW still. That says it all.

    He was dominated by Phil Davis, if you don't think Phil Davis is a top LHW, you should feel the same about Glover since Phil is better than Glover.

    When Ryan Bader is the 4th ranked LHW you kinda know the division doesn't have much in terms of a plethera of talent. YES Glover is an elite LHW just becasue LHW really only has DC,Rumble,Glover,Gus and maybe Bones if he fights again.

    What the hell does Rumble's performances at weight classes 20-35 lbs below where he currently fights at have to do with the issue of Glover as a top LHW?


    lol the weight difference between Vitor and Rumble on fight night was 7 lbs. They did a weigh-in on fight night and Vitor was 205 and Rumble was 212.

    Glover is a killer. Ask Rashad.

    You realize the "if only this guy could get his visa" talk was ten years ago right?

    It took him years to finally get his visa shit sorted out and he came in and fought for the title. Dude became a title contender and you're questioning his credibility?

    Dude is getting older, one of the oldest in the division and he's still kicking ass.
