After Jon Jones defends his title against Alexander Gustafson later this year, there is a short list of viable contenders to fight the winner. Glover Teixeira thinks he is one of them, and hopes to prove in his September bout with Ryan Bader:

"When I said I didn't think I had done enough to earn a title shot, it wasn't because of my confidence or my skills," Teixeira told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "When I said that, it's because I'm new in the company. But I think I have the skills to go over there today and fight for the title and fight Jon Jones."

"My skills and my confidence, I'm ready to fight for the title tomorrow," Teixeira said. "I'm ready to get the title. If Gustafsson gets hurt – and I hope he doesn't, I don't want that for anybody – but I'm always there. If I don't get hurt in the Ryan Bader fight, I'll fight Jon Jones."

IMO teixera is the only lhw that bones hasn't defeated with a chance of beating him.

I concede the chance is extremely slim but at least it's a fresh match up and he's well rounded. Phone Post 3.0

Glover IMO is JBJ's toughest matchup out there. I feel like JBJ will be the dominant fighter in this fight, he will be the one deciding where the fight takes place. How will Glover handle being taken down and beat up?

Yes, make him fight another wrestler after Bader - Phil Davis perhaps.

Anderson could move up to LWH permanently after the next fight with Weidman. Now there is a guy who could take out Bones.

Glover is my favorite contender in all divisions right now, the man is a kid in a candy store like JDS he seems unbelievably cool.

 

You have Pettis practically praying for the Grant Injury and even saying he should volunteer to step aside at LW, and I like Pettis don't get me wrong he seems like just a driven impatient guy, and you have Glover who is probably excited about watching his competitors fight and having a beer with them after he gets fight them at LHW. 

Very different situations but Glover seems like he wants compete and at the end of the day shake hands and toast to a good battle.

Good guy Glover wants a title match and is respectable about how he gets it. I think he has a great chance at taking the title but it's going to be a war. Phone Post 3.0

Based on the link on the front page, Glover and Feijao were obviously separated at birth.

Strange Brew - 

Whoever is in charge of this new shit lately is blowing it. A few days ago their was an article about Breaking Bad that had nothing to do with MMA. Someone eventually took it down. Use some of that blue name fundage and get it together.


They must have hired a replacement for the duration of the holidays. Maybe a sweet girl from Entertainment Tonight?

Glover you need to learn from before. If Gus gets hurt Jon won't fight the replacement.

He needs ample time to prepare.

They must have changed it right after I posted that. When I went to the front page from my bookmark, it was Feijao.

Jones Vs. Texeira, aka the last serious championship fight at LHW. Other than Texeira, every other fight is an inevitable blowout.

Besides Glover, Jones has nobody else at Light Heavy.  I say give Jones glover after the Gustaffson fight (assuming both win) and then superfight with Anderson (if anderson regains title) or superfight with Cain/JDS.

Jones has the length, but Glover would have the girth
