Is there an indication Teixeira will look better than his last fight?

    Trying to pick a winner in the OSP/GT fight and all I can think about his how terrible he looked against Davis in his last fight - and that he had an injury since then.

    OSP has looked good,but against far worse competition

    If by guillotine you mean arm triangle then yes, you're right

    Nah. I think OSP gives him that work. Especially if Glover doesn't catch him in the first.

    I can't speak about that fight, i didn't see it, but Glover i guess is much better at bjj when hes in a dominant position. He may jsut be one of those guys that can't do much defensively (not sure didn't see the fight but it seems that way). Also glover was heavily overrated hyped getting a ts against jones.

    Time is definitely not on his side, 35 now. It's very possible we've seen prime GT come and go.

    I'll be putting a small bet on OSP I think.

    I think OSP steamrolls GT into Bellator.

    Davis makes everyone look shitty (except for Rumble.) Although I did hear rumors about Glover training out of his garage for that fight... If he comes in with a good camp I think he submits OSP. I could totally see OSP landing on him and putting him away though. Dude is crazy explosive and the only guy who's been able to hold him down was Bader, who is a much betrer wrestler than Glover. This is a tough one to bet on, I'll wait for the weighins to decide where my money is going.

    BTW just checked the Odds OSP is +100 for this fight.

    Those are good odds. May drop a little here.

    I think OSP wins a decision. I think Glover's kind of given up since the Jone fight.

    it's hard to call, it seems osp is on the up and glover is going the other way.

    A few fights back i would of said glover easily, but now im leaning towards osp.

    i dont see this going the distance either way.

    Texeira lost his last 2 fights to long rangy fighters. I think the blueprint has been laid and OSP has the size to take advantage here. There is a good chance OSP wins via decision.

    All I want to know is what happened to Glover? He used to be so dominant until Bader almost knocked him out twice, then he just kinda lost it.

    I think because of guys like A. Silva, champion until he was 38, Randy, champion when he was 44, Hendo, still fighting in his 40's, we underestimate what age actually looks like on a normal fighter.

    Glover is 35 years old. He's reached the end of the line.
