The fight was so close. I personally thought it was either a win for Gus or a draw. Even if FightMetric proved Gus lost the fight, do you think he deserves an immediate rematch? I think so.

No. Give Glover the shot. Gus put up a great fight, but still lost a UD. If he wins his next fight, pencil him in for the shot.

even though it was a robbery imo, no immediate rematch

I think he deserves it, but not as much as glover deserves his shot.

I say give Glover his shot and give Gus someone high up in the division. If Gus wins give him the winner of Glover/Jones. I personally scored the fight for Gus but it was pretty close. Like I said in the other thread, 49-46 Jones is ridiculous imo.

Toughest fight for Jones so far, but I agree with the 48-47 on first view.
No immediate rematches for non-exchamps. I just made that rule up.

It was close but in no way a robbery so no immediate rematch. Give Gus someone in the top 10 while Jones fights Glover then set up the rematch. If Jones beats him a 2nd time send Jones up to HW.

A rematch vs either Gus or manchita is going to be though for Jones

Let Gus win one fight then give him the winner of Tex/Jones.

No, like a few others have said, let Gus get a top opponent if he dominates let him get winner of Jones/Glover.

Extremely close fight, but Jones did win, check the Fight Metric stats, Bones had a bit of an advantage in significant strikes, overall was closer, but Bones was still ahead.

Shit, had Bones lost, I wouldn't have been that upset about it, that 49-46 was ridiculous!

of course he deserves a rematch. he won the fight in my opinion. if anyone puts on a display like he did last night should get an immediate rematch. besides, glover will get obliterated if he fights jones. the only thing he would test is how fast he can get to the hospital after the fight
