    Both are tall, young-ish, popular white guys near the top of their divisions. Who would win if they fought?

    lol

    Guys in different weight classes and absurd reasoning for wanting to know the outcome.

    Both fighters are tall, like Sesame Street, poop and breathe... how would the fight go?

    Gus would win that fight, a little bit bigger, and he would wreck Rockhold on the feet.

    Gus wins standing, but also dissapoints his fans, and even haters with how competitive it is, only clearly winning the 2nd if Rockhold doesn't try to kill his body right away. Rockhold gets pissed that he can only attempt a couple arm and leg submissions here and there instead of his preferred chokes, and is seen cussing for the subs to lock and crank. The final round is absolutely nuts with both fighters nearly finishing the other, the scores read 49-48 49-47 49-49 for Gus. It gets nominated for FOTY but wins no awards other than the ones handed out by UFC on that night. Everyone calls Luke a warrior and a lot call for him to move up to LHW, calling him a future contender there. People continue to oddly question if Gus should retire.


    I think Gus experiences success in the clinch, but then Rockhold starts attempting trips, throws, tosses, and uses those attempts to lure subs. & that's when it gets messy for Gus. I don't think Gus is as technically good as he is efficient. I don't think the gap in skill and size is enough for the fight to ever be non competitive unless Gus is just THAT much stronger than Luke. I'm probably wrong, and he's fucking strong as shit considering he went at it with Jones who is obviously a chicken legged Ox. So if Gus had that advantage going for him, he might probably sub Luke just to say he did, or knock him silly with an uppercut from hell that makes Luke miss licking Vitor's toes and shit.

    Gustaffson wins this fight via better striking and having the defensive wrestling/grappling to keep it standing. And he would have some size on Luke as well

    Gus is too big to get wrestled and better on the feet.
