    So funny how before they couldn't give a **** less about Gus and now they're protecting him like their golden child or something.

    Manuwa does not even have the gas tank to go 3 hard rounds. Gus by late tko.

    Called it.

    I'll be rooting for Manuwa to get a KO Gus probably takes a UD tho or a late finish if Manuwa gasses

    That's a very dangerous fight for Gustafsson.
    Jimi is a beast!

    That would be a great, great fight!
    Hope it does happen.

    Actually this fight is a lose lose for Gus, its a dangerous fight and when he wins he better finish him or he will lose some top rank credibility but since Jimi is a tough striker himself this is a bad matchup.

    What the **** are you guys *****ing about? Who else is he going to fight? Everyone is tied up except this undefeated fighter.

    - Jones has Glover
    - Glover has Jones
    - Mousasi is headed back to 185 to fight Machida.
    - Machida is fighting Mousasi at 185
    - Vitor is fighting Hendo.
    - Hendo isn't even in a position to fight Gus if he was free
    - Chael has Rashad and Wanderlei after that
    - Rashad has Chael
    - Davis probably doesn't want the fight
    - Gus already fought Thiago Silva

    Do you see the trend? Stop complaining about matchmaking like any of you could find him a better fight.

    Cormier does not want his first cut to 205 to be overseas and that is perfectly understandable. He hasn't made 211 in like 9 years! His kidneys are shot already and we don't even know how his body is going to react to the weight cut. Flying across the pond and cutting over there is the absolute worst thing he could do.

    Damn some of you are absolutely impossible to please and will **** and moan about anything.

    This fight was kinda obvious to me I remember talking to someone on here in a thread about potential fights for Gus not long ago and I mentioned Manuwa and the London card being a strong possibility, it's an interesting fight but I hope we get a stacked card or I'll probably give it a miss and watch on tv like I did with the Manchester card.

    It might have something to do with the fact that he beat the **** out of the current champion 4 rounds to 1 and should have 12 pounds of gold around his waist.

    Because people can't take 20 seconds to think about the lack of options for him. Proceed to complain about Gus fighting a 14-0 fighter... what the ****?

    Waiting doesn't always work out when guys get in a fist fight. You never know what kind of medical suspension someone is going to have. You can't sit back and think "Well let's wait on this fight to play out and we will give the winner the Gus fight"

    The winner may break his hand. The winner may be involved in a war and not be ready for a quick turn around.

    Complain some more I'm sure it will help.

    I was kinda expecting this fight might happen.

    This is a very dangerous fight for Gus. Manuwa has nothing to lose, he might not have the same cardio, wrestling, or ground game as Gustafsson, but he can definitely stand with him and has the potential to finish Gus on the feet (or get a doctor's stoppage/injury since that's what he usually gets).

    I'd expect Gus to win but it is a very tough matchup and it's a shame a win over Manuwa probably won't give him the props he deserves if he does beat him

    Manuwa doesn't have a top 10 win yet and Gus is the LHW champion I can see why some people are confused by this fight, it's obvious they want to make sure the rematch happens with Jones I'll lol if Manuwa spoils the plans and beats Gus then Jones highly unlikely but I'd love to see it.

    They screwed Gus out of an immediate rematch already. I like Glover a lot but he could wait. Honestly Glover should be fighting Manuwa and Gus should be fighting for what is rightfully his. It didn't work out that way.

    There is other options the card is 4 months plus away, I don't mind the fight tho so whatever.

    Exactly it's four plus months away anything could happen. Gus could get injured. Manuwa could get injured. The fight may not even happen.

    You cannot wait around and see how other fights play out and bank on a certain fighter to come out of his scrap perfectly healthy and ready to go.

    Is Gus suppose to pull a Jon Jones and fight some 185er in a meaningless fight? That's your other options.
