Hope Glover knocks his ass off his high horse.

I love it! I don't know how good Glover's chances are but I completely counted out Gustafsson so i'm just gonna ignore my instinct on Jones fights from now on.

Jones has a pretty favorable resume against Brazilians. I think he can finish him just inside the championship rounds.

Who would you rather have fight for the title other than Glover at this point?

No big suprise

Hotel and flight are paid for
Glad Jones finally is fighting in Vegas
Amazingly Jones hasn't defended the title once in Vegas
His last fight there was against Ryan Bader ages ago

My thoughts exactly no one is more worthy than Glover for a crack at Jones.

What does a persons nationality have to do with it?

He beat 3 Brazilians and 3 Americans and a sweed since the night he took the title. I'm just trying to understand why Glover being Brazilian would have anything to do with how the fight would play out? Is that part of your pick strategy? Just seems of all the reasons to pick Jones that would be the last one I could have come up with.
