    Whats your prediction will Gus ever be the UFC lhw champion?
    In my opinion he would be an amazing champion.. very classy
    even in a controversial loss and even with Joe Rogan fishing
    for his view on the decision. But Gus remains classy and
    professional at all times and didnt complain at all.

    Right now the belt is with Jones but small chance it could go
    to glover and a somewhat real chance it could go to cormier
    as well.

    Despite which one of these dudes Gus has to fight for the belt...
    do you predict he will one day hold ufc gold?

    I think he might be champion coming, I think he will nail his next chance. He is a top level LHW now....and there really arent any new guys coming up to challenge him. I feel he can beat anyone at LHW, but I wouldnt feel confident in many guys beating him.

    The rematch with Jones is going to be epic. So maybe.

    Yeah. I can see it.

    Who knows if it will happen, but he showed he has the tools and the balls to do it.

    I feel like Jones is rethinking the idea that he "already fought his Joe Frazier".

    He has an excellent chance take it. Anyone who thinks otherwise is trolling.

    I believe Jones won the first fight, but it was close. I've always thought Gus was very good, but as a long-time Jones fan, I really came to respect Gus after this fight.

    He already beat Jones once I don't see why he won't again.

    Nope. He'll have to buy a replica. Jones will be displeased as a result.

    No it wont

    Jones was actually competent with Gus on the feet and Gus did everything right but still lost and kept it on the feet.

    It will get tougher

    If anyone can beat Jones at 205 it's Gus, but I still say no. Unless Jones leaves the division.

    Based on the Jones fight it appears that he could take out beat anyone else in the division and is a serious threat for the belt from here on.

    I say yes.. but if not I think he has a pretty good shot at HW if he decides to move up.

    I think Gus had his chance.

    I'd say no. At least not as long as Jones has it.

    If you ain't got that gold then yo ass ain't the champ. Gus did good but he didn't beat Jones.

    I think it will be easier for him. He knows he can defend the takedowns and out box Jones. What he has to work on is cardio (same with Jones) and avoiding kicks and be better prepped for the elbows.

    He will be more confident next time in throwing power shots as well...I think Gus was a bit gun shy in going with more power at times.

    I think its just easier for Gus to make a few minor adjustments.....then for Jones to improve what he wanted to do.
