    Glover Teixeira will be owned by Jones.

      Going by his awful performance against Bader, I completely agree.

        If it wasnt for Bader throwing that same punch over and over when he had Gloever hurt against the cage, he might of won. Glover timed it perfectly. If you keep doing that over and over of course your opponent will know whats coming. He should have mixed it up with different punches and kicks.
