Hackleman: Glover can beat anyone, Jones too

 

Jon Hackleman is best known as the man that guided the career and training of UFC champion Chuck Liddell as his 'The Pit' gym in San Luis Obispo, California. Hackelmand and Liddell were an unbeatable pair and dominated that UFC's light heavyweight division from early 2004 to late 2006. Liddell ended his career on a losing skid, probably because he should have stopped fighting sooner, but Hackleman is still working in the UFC, now with long time stable mate of Liddell, Glover Teixeira

Hackleman was recently a guest on the 'The MMA Fight Corner' where he discussed why Teixeira is so good and what he feels is in the near future for him:

“I think Jon Jones is great. I think anyone’s beatable. A couple of people have come close, maybe if that armbar was a little better from Vitor, or if Lyoto stayed a little more aggressive with his punches, anybody can get beat,” Hackleman said. “If anybody could hit him in the chin just right that would be one thing. Vitor came pretty close, caught him in a submission. I think Glover can beat anyone because he has such hard hitting that that could change any aspect of any fight ’cause he has that one-punch knockout power.

“Anyone can knock anyone out if they get hit just right, but some people just have that one-punch knockout power and its easier for them to knock people out,” Hackleman continued. “And then, he’s a really good wrestler, has unbelievable jiu jitsu, black belt and multiple tournament winner. To top it off he’s a beast when it comes to conditioning. He’s going to be a hard guy to beat, but Jon Jones is as well. It would definitely be an interesting match up and I think Glover would love to take that fight.”

I agree that Glover is a beast and may be a tough fight for Jones.   However, it's laughable to claim that Machida came close to beating Jones. He frustrated Jones in the first and landed a solid counter when Jones was off balance. That's about it. At the end of the day, he landed about a dozen strikes in two rounds. I also don't know how he could have been any more aggressive. That's probably the most aggressive that we've seen him in a UFC fight along with when he fought Rashad.

Glover has a chance. They will need a good game plan but it can be done.

I love Glover, but I just don't see him beating Jones.

whatever odds Glover is at for when he fights Jones, I will be placing a flyer bet on Glover.

I'd like to see Lil Nog vs Jones but it will probably never happen.

I think Glover has the best chance of anyone at LHW excluding TRT Vitor. I really think TRT Vitor is gunna keep KO'ing contenders until he gets his rematch with Andy or Jones...

Glover would not be able to get his hands on Jones and I seriously doubt he has the bottom game to pose a real threat or even avoid taking a lot of damage. He is an awesome fighter but stylistically does not match up well with Jones (not that anyone really does).
