Glover Wants His Shot, Not Happy With Jones vs. Gustafsson Rematch Talk

“Even I want to watch that fight again, but it’s hard to say I’m okay with it, because I worked so hard to get this opportunity. I felt like I had my hands right there on the chance, and now they’re going to take it away from me, and who knows for how long? It could be a year from now. It’s really upsetting to me. There’s no way I’m just going to sit around. I’m healthy. I’m good. I had a few minor injuries before the fight with Bader, but nothing major, and we’re getting it taken care of. I could be ready to fight in three or four months, and I don’t want to wait. If they’re going to do this rematch, then I want to get in there and fight someone else. I want that title shot. That’s all I want. I’ll sit back and wait and cross my fingers.”

UFC top contender, Glover Teixeira has climbed the light-heavyweight mountain and been promised a title shot.

With last weekend’s UFC 165 main event ending in controversy, the Brazilian bulldozer seems to be worried about his contendershp, now that the world is clamoring for a Jones vs. Gust. 2.

Should the UFC keep their promise to Glover and give him the shot at Jones or is the rematch between Jones and Gustafsson more appealing?

    You looked pretty intimidated while watching the fight man… Just my observation…

  2. GRT 3000 says:

    GUstav lost man – who cares what a bunch of Internet newbie fans say. Give Glover his shot!

  3. zack says:

    Gusto showed the holes in jones game. And glover has the power that gusto lacks that could finish jones. I think he could stuff some takedowns and get inside and KO jones. BUT he would need to do it in the early rounds because i dont think he has the cardio to close the distance in the later rounds. I say let jones fight glover and have gusto rest up and fight the winner.

    Anyone who uses the word “newbie” ought to have their face smashed in a couple of dozen times with a clawhammer. Same goes for chumps who type “jes sayin'”.

  5. RICEEY says:

    I thought the same thing…but the only reason Gusto got in on jones is reach.. Glover will not be able to get on the inside and will be KO’d / Choked out in standing position relatively easy. Trust me, no way Glover beats JBJ

    I thinjk Glover should get the fight before Gustafasson,a auto rematch is when the champ loses and he gets a chance to get it back.Gustafasson should be behind Glover.
