Let that sink in for a moment (Gus haters)..
Who has Gus finished? Matt Hamill?
And Gus couldn't KO Shogun who has clearly been out of his prime for years now.
Gus has TKO/KOd absolutely zero top fighters. Your point is also zero.
Edit : haha everyone owned ts in the topic so far.
Gus' best career win is Shogun.
I don't see your point?
Gus isn't much of a finisher either, but that doesn't take away from him dominating fights... Same goes for Johnson...
Havent really seen people here shouting around how Gus is going to KO Rumble.
And he didn't even look good too.
Do people forget how little of a chance everyone was giving Gus before the Jones fight? This is just the same shit again. His performance against Jones gets him the praise he's been getting, nothing before it, and hardly anything since (other than the nuthuggers who refer to Manuwa as a "huge win")
I would say Lil Nog may be the most overrated fighter, and has been for some time. And that's from a long-time BTT fan.
Gus' best win, not finish, is 'Shot'gun.
If Gus had gotten destroyed by Jones there would be no talk about him bc he didn't look all that good against his best opponents. In my opinion Gus still hasn't proven himself enough to make me think he's going to destroy Johnson. Guida looked the best against Pettis and he clearly isn't on Pettis' level.
Rumble beat AA at HW.
Also, please remember that Rumble is a natural WW so you shouldn't expect him to have cataclysmic power at LHW of all places. What he does manage to do is pure skill.
Gus KO'd Manuwa. Manuwa would KO Rumble.
But he didnt got destroyed by Jones. And he doesnt need to "destroy" Johnson, I would be completely satisfied for a Gus` decision win after 5 hard rounds. Rumble is a tough and dangerous opponent, this thread is just for those who keep shouting how Rumble is going to KO Gus easily etc. He obviously has a decent chance, but thats it. Gus is the rightfull favourite.
I actually think Gus' chin may be what let's him beat Rumble.
