It would be fucked up, if Glover wins and doesn't get the next title shot Phone Post

Winner of Machida vs Henderson should get the title shot, considering it was Dan's anyway. I'm a Machida fan, but it should be Jones vs Henderson.

Also, Gustafsson is more deserving than Glover in my opinion. Glover is for sure in the mix, though.

Glover absolutely tooled Lyoto in this video... I'm guessing they obviously just skipped the times Lyoto caught him for this one...

Of course it was edited to show Glover's skills. We will make a highlight video of Machida as well prior to hit fight & hopefully get an interview like this to go with it. Thanks for the support guys!

NotImpressedByYourScreenName - Even though 90% of me thinks glover will outclass rampage, rampage has a habit of pulling one out of the bag, eg Chuck Lidell, Wand.

Glover SHOULD win.

But also see Rampage pulling out "injured" and getting cut. Phone Post
I agree. Ill be relieved to see Rampage step in the cage. Phone Post

Page will fight count on it. Glover WILL win as long as he doesn't get caught by Page's power.

He he Glover looks good in the vid and Machida looks a little off, but it was just a random sparring session so you can not really tell. It alos looks like Glover was going quite a bit harder and more aggressive while Machida was kind of laid back and was trying to do his lets try to time and rythm stuff while doing some light patty cake sparring.

Hard to really gauge when two people are sparring at different intensities. It is kind of easy to time stuff and enforce your will when there is limited fear of retaliation of getting hit back hard. Kind of like when Machida did a patty cake flying knee on Glover, and Glover went straight to a take down. Can't really tell if that take down would have worked if the knee was was going full force.

What surprises me is that Machida didn't raise the intensity of the sparring. Almost looked like he wanted nothing to do with the sparring, did not want to escalate it, and was just trying to prevent himself from getting injured. I mean who leaves a jab out there to keep and space distance like that during sparring.

I'd be fine with this. Perhaps if glover wins he fights Gustafson for title shot.
I know when he beat shogun he was told he'd get a title shot but we all know how that goes. Hendricks was recently told the same thing. Phone Post
