    The guy who has to face Anthony Johnson and is so full of his own shit about fighting for the title against Bones that he doesn't give enough respect to Johnson and ends up losing because of it. Too many people are looking past Johnson and I think that's just gonna make him more motivated to get the job done.

    Phil Davis has absolutely no stand up and if he can't get the fight to the ground against a good striker, he's fucked.

    Rumble plods forward and has power to hurt people, but Gus has the best footwork, boxing, and chin at LHW. He's gonna pick Rumble apart, and we've seen Rumble crumble when the fight's not going his way.

    Gus isn't looking past Rumble. Gus is gonna go in there, and make Rumble look like an amateur, and then he's coming for Jon Jones.

    You don't think Gus will be motivated after selling out a stadium in his own country?

    Difference between motivated and full of it. I think Gustafsson has become cocky instead of confident like Phil Davis was last year and that's going to hurt him

    The dude is from scandinavia.

    He is smart.

    He is not looking past Rumble, he just views him as an obstacle on the road to the real prize.

    AJ having great tdd is just a bad matchup for Davis who relies on his wrassling

    Gus will get past Rumble. I hope he doesn't get caught because Rumble has zero for Jon. Gus could very well become the next champ.

    BTW: A few posts on social media take up around 10 seconds of a 24 hour day. I doubt he's 'sleeping' on Rumble.

    Based on what, exactly?

    And Davis didn't lose because he was cocky... He lost because he has almost non existent striking and resorted to running when he realized Johnson's takedown defense was on point that night.
