All Bader had to do was use his head and he would've won that fight...it's so depressing...

Even if a couple of the shots Bader landed did rock Glover, I don't think that makes him look bad. Bader was throwing everything he had into his strikes, I expected one to stun Glover if it landed cleanly. I'm a fan of Glover, but not delusional or anything. I wouldn't bet on him (or anyone currently) against Jones, but I think he has as good or better a chance of winning when compared to anyone else in the division right now. He's been quite active since joining the UFC and has put together 5 wins in a row inside the UFC, which is a significant accomplishment in this day in age. Out of those 5, only one fight has gone to the cards. So he's winning and he's stopping guys. Gustafsson has 6 wins in a row (7 total) and one loss since joining the UFC, getting stoppages in 5 of 7 fights. I will grant you that Alexander's last 4 fights have been bigger names than Glover's, and I wouldn't be enraged if they made Glover fight another once or twice for a shot, but I'd also be fine with him getting the next shot. Especially when you consider that championship fights seem to have 6+ month layoffs very often, I wouldn't be surprised to see Glover have to fight again. I also haven't looked over every high level LHW's record though, so perhaps there is someone more deserving that I am overlooking. If that's the case, I'd probably rather see that guy. If not, then I think there's a good argument for Glover.

Bader had a shot, he just got over excited and rushed in and started winging. Props to Glover for hanging in there and pulling it out, but he didn't look like the world beater people are making him out to be.Jones eats his lunch imo.
