    Anyone going hmmmmmmm over this? I wonder if those wins leverage him to an automatic title shot against either later in 2021 or is he still 1-2 win away? With Jones at HW, maybe returning to LHW makes sense. Gus always making me go hmmmmmm. Calling it now Gus LHW champ by 2022.

    He also lost in pathetic fashion to both Smith and Werdum.

    Depends if he can get his motivation back really, I think he's mentally checked out.

    It's a shame because prime Gus would have a good chance of winning the title.

    If he's gonna do it it'd be a good idea to get on it before Rumble comes back.

    Mind you, Gus is probably washed at this point in his career now.

    He's lost chances at his title shots twice and is on a bad losing streak.

    Gus is done

    The wars with DC and Jones plus the Rumble beating has taken a piece out of him that he wont get back

    He looked amazing against Teixeira (May 2017) but it has been a steep downward trajectory since then.

    Smith didn't beat the fuck out of him, that was a close fight until Gus got himself in a shit position and managed to lose.

    He made one mistake and that was it in that fight. Noone can afford to give Werdum their back.

    Gus is one of the best fighters to never have won a title (or at least an interim title)..

    If he racks up a couple of wins and gets a shot at the title, would be nice. He's the Michael Bisping of the LHW division.

    He’s not even ranked in LHW right now, and you want to give him a TS? This is ridiculous.

    What about Corey Anderson?

    That was Glover's last loss and Corey dominated him.

    Gus for some reason out of nowhere completely lost his motivation and checked out mentally. I believe he was on vs Jones 2 but something happened in that first round.
