I voted Yes.

With Gus currently lined up to fight Bones and Machida moving to MW, I think Glover is the best choice for the next shot at Bones.

I voted yes also, because if Jones retains the title, who else is there for him to face?

I'm all for Jones vs Teixeira if they are both victorious in their up coming bouts.

I went yes. I don't want to see Cormier beat Nelson and get an instant title shot coming down in weight before Glover.

I voted Maybe, but there isn't really anyone else left for Bones so it kinda has to happen.

I don't see Teixeira doing very well against Bones, though.

Honestly, I can't understand why Glover's fighting Bader in the first place.

Glover's takedown defense is pretty good, and he has knockout power in his hands.

Explain your answer.


I don't take orders from you.



But yes, there will truly be nobody left in line other than Glover. Gegard has expressed MW interests and Davis is behind Glover at this point...and injured.

Glover by default.

Then I say move to heavyweight.
Or tangle in it like Silva did with light heavy

It really sucks that there's no one else for Bones to fight, because Glover doesn't stand a chance.

He almost got KO'ed by Bader

Glover has a better chance then Gus and Bones last all opponents I think.
