I don't think there was an argument that he stylistically matched up against Jon. Glover's age, inactivity against legit opponents, and lack of a real solid camp was always a detriment to him being an elite fighter. But no one can doubt that he is an upper tier light heavyweight right now. Certain guys (i.e. Bader) will always find a way to lose to him.

Glover will get murdered by anyone good.

The problem is that there aren't that many good light heavyweights.  Glover is probably top 5 in the world at 205, but Jon Jones should be ranked #1-3.  He is so far ahead of everyone else in the division it is kind of ridiculous.  Bader is the single best looking knock out recipient in the UFC.  When he falls he splays out like pancake batter dropped from a roof.  If you want to make someone a contender have them punch Bader one good time and you have yourself a highlight reel knockout.


This main card was surprisingly good with the top three fights solidifying the title pictures of their respective divisions.  Joseph Benavidez has the best chance of winning a title of any of the Alpha Male guys.  It seems like they have an entire camp full of #2 guys in their divisions which is kind of depressing when you think about it.  With that said since Bang Ludwig took over as head coach the entire team is 17-0.  If the Alpha Male guys were hobbits(the jury is still out) those long ass Lord of the Rings movies would have been over in about 15 minutes. 


Jacare has become a pretty well rounded fighter, which I wouldn't have guessed.  He straight smashed Okami, who has been hovering around the top of the middleweight division for years now.  He has solidified himself as a legit contender for the title, despite the fact that I see him getting beat into a bloody, broken, pulp against Silva or Weidman.

No.  He's probably the second best LHW in the world.  A fight with him and Gustafsson would be interesting but I'd probably go with Glover.  Not sure who in that division you think would "murder" him.  Rashad? Lil Nog? Those guys haven't "murdered" anyone in years.  Phil Davis would be interesting but laying on dudes for three rounds is more of his thing.
