    I think Gus is so under appreciated. The guy beat the pound for pound best Jon Jones and got robbed in a decision. He should be the lhw champion right now. He then destroys Jimi Manuwa without breaking a sweat. Which should have earned him a championship fight. But no he has to fight Rumble. Gus being the great man that he is, accepts the fight and basically gets cheated out of the win when he was in complete control of the fight up until Rumble threw an illegal headbutt.

    So finally UFC then decided to do what's right after screwing this guy over again and again. They finally give him his well deserved title shot against DC. Gus nearly kos DC and by some miracle fluke, DC steals the decision win.

    I honestly feel bad for the guy and think he makes a serious case as the p4p number 1 right now.the funny thing is he could probably go up to hw and win the belt up there if he decided he wanted to, but he would rather fight the killers in the 205 pound division.

    Wish people would give this guy a bit more respect

    If Gus had won the belt against Jones, he would have lost it against Rumble, who would have lost it to DC. So DC is the linear 'Gus won' champ as well as the actual champ.

    Doubt Rumble gets that lucky twice. That was seriously such crap how he got away with that headbutt. Gus is far superior to Rumble and I don't care what anyone says, Gus didn't lose that fight. Not fair and square anyway

    Also, I think there are several reasons Gus gets overlooked:
    1. He's only had four fights in the last three years. Only one of those fights was a win. Losing to the best three LHWs is no shame, but neither does it make you elite.
    2. He doesn't have any great wins, although he does have some good wins.

    Honestly, I think if he just fought much more often he'd get more respect. You don't have to be champ to be respected. He put on good fights against Jones and Cormier.

    So now Gus didn't lose to Jones and didn't lose to Rumble? OK then.

    Gus still lost to Cormier, so Cormier is the linear 'Gus beat Jones and Rumble' champ in addition to being the linear 'Gus beat Jones, then lost to Rumble' champ and the actual champ.

    It's funny because Gus was robbed in all three of those fights. He nearly kod DC, which means he should have gotten the nod. Everyone knows he beat Jones but was robbed. And Rumble had to cheat to beat Gus. His only loss is to Phil Davis and even then it was kind of lucky IMO

    White belts shouldn't be allowed to make threads.

    Didn't beat Rumble obviously but was on his way to an easy victory before being caught of guard with that headbutt. i would say Gus beats Rumble 9/10 times. They definitely need to rematch. I'm sure that's a fight Rumble would be hesitant to take

    No. Just no.

    He's a phenomenal fighter but legitimately lost to the best 3 guys in Division, the haters claim he beat Jones is funny, guy lost 3 to 4 rounds in that fight. I think he loses to texira as well

    Seriously man, you just made a thread earlier in which you said the exact same thing. One should begin to think it's really you Gus. How's the weather in Stockholm?

    Still gonna say the same thing.
