... is (most likely) coming to an end. At least for the near future. Now I know that the next title challenger is a Brazilian and if last week taught us ANYTHING it's to not count out anybody but I'm sorry. Glover is a great fighter but I simply do not believe he has what it takes to beat Jones (I know I know people-myself included- thought the same way about Gus). And beyond him there isn't anybody left. Lyoto is moving to MW. Shogun and Nogueira are near spent at this point. Thiago Silva? Feijao? Riiiiight. Obviously there will be brighter days for them at some point in the future but this will be the first time in well over a decade without a Brazilian at or near the top of the division. Ever since Wanderlei Silva knocked out Sakuraba to become the Pride Middleweight Champion there has always been a Brazilian either at number 1 or in the immediate stream of contendership to get there. And usually more than one. From Wandy's heydey Shogun's GP run to the Machida era. more than a Decade of very tough men from Brazil terrorizing the division. Sad to see it end in a way despite not being Brazilian.
