Same here. He's obviously much more suited for 205 lbs but you never know...

I was against Dana's excessive lifetime ban, but we gotta be somewhat real here. Nobody's on his back, per se. It's sorta like Tony Romo when the game is on the line -- whether you love or hate the Cowboys, you're still expecting him to go full Romo.

I hear what you're saying, though. Rumble took a lot of flack heading into this fight, but it's not all undeserved. You miss weight as many times as he has and people are going to expect certain behaviors. If he's able to successfully continue to make weight at this division and not have any further issues, I'm sure that his weight-cutting problems will turn into a joke of the past.

That would definitely improve his weight situation.

I held my breathe too seeing him read the rumble weight.
Rumble was about to drop his shorts

JJ really should have no trouble with Glover, but here's to hoping that Glover knocks his head into the second row with his patented left hook. Glover has a bunch of weapons, not only does he have a punchers chance, he has improved wrestling and a BJJ black belt. It's gonna be tough for him to get on top of JJ, but stranger things have happened, and if he were able to somehow get that position, I think he would finish Jones with strikes or an arm triangle.
