With Lyoto Machida out of the light heavyweight title picture, a path has been cleared for Glover Teixeira.

Not surprised but would definitely like to see how he does with Bader, a dominant performance would warrant a title shot imo.

I think Glover has the ability to damage Bones. But i didn't see the fight last night with Phil Davis. But i think he's got a chance with his wrestling and sub skills and a nice range.

I think Teixeira has the best chance at because I think he's the most well-rounded fighter that Jones has faced.

Makes sense, Glover has the streak and the hype. I would think Davis comes right after that...he won a controversial decision over Machida, it really wasn't a great fight for either though.
