    Jan's biggest weakness is his grappling. Almost all the best grapplers are in Bellator. I would favor Nemkov and Rumble over Jan about 7/10, Davis about 6/10 and Bader and Anderson about 5.5/10 mainly due to their chins. The last time something like this happened Liddell was champion in the UFC and his toughest match ups were fellow strikers who were almost all in Pride.

    He will get smoked soon. He’s too small.

    Nemkov dominates him IMO and Rumble could too. I very much doubt he would KO Davis either.

    Well, good thing then. He's getting paid more in UFC for, apparently, easier fights. Easiest fight for the biggest money in front of the biggest crowd - just like Chael advises.

    Prochazka and Ankalaev aren't in Bellator.

    They both absolutely smoke him.

    Maybe but they would be fighting to his strengths and they might get KOed in the process.

    Agreed, TS. Nemkov, Davis and Rumble are bad match ups for Jan. He is a Bisping level champion, only champ owing to favorable circumstances, such as Jones being gone and UFC not signing these other elite LHW's. The fact Glover is fighting for a title again says it all.

    Bellator LHW is the A leagues. When will you ppl realize you’re watching the minors? Dudes really getting excited about 40 year old LHWs yet they call Bellator the retirement home lol. Phil davis and rumble are “past their prime” but Glover and Jan are “at the top” lol.

    UFC casuals

    18 months ago:
    *Adesanya stares down Romero for 25 mins and gets a gift decision*
    “Adesanya is the best and he just dismantled a beast in Yoel!”
    Today:
    *Phil Davis dominates Romero on the feet and on the ground in a decisive and dominant decision*
    “I knew Yoel was washed up he couldn’t hang in the big leagues anymore”

    UFC casuals are pathetic.

    Lots of people favor lots of guys over Jan. Before Glover, when is the last fight Jan was a betting favorite in?

    Everyone is a "bad style" match for Jan until he hits them.

    There are about a half dozen guys out there that I think Jan would struggle with between Bellator and UFC.

    I think Ankalaev, Nemkov, Jiri, Rakic and Phil pose problems. Corey maybe, but it did worry me how easily Jan KO'd him last time. I think Jailton would cause him problems already, but I'm his chief fanboy so I can see why other people would think he needs to prove himself more first.

    And yet Jan is the undisputed champion in the number 1 outfit on the planet. He’ll beat Glover, then Jiri. I doubt he gives a damn about the guys in the minors.

    If we're being honest, the most relevant and toughest match up for Jan is his birthday.
