  • I hope they induct him into the hall of fame. What an amazing career. From a highly touted prospect to being down and out, to becoming champion. Nothing but respect for this man

  • Glover is the exact opposite of what the Brazilian crowd was. So humble in victory and in defeat too... He's always displayed a tremendous amount of heart and was very passionate about fighting. Thank you for these moments, Glover.

    • @forwardtothepast8470 - You know, someone can agree with everything that you're saying and still say (or mean to say, even if the writing isn't explicitly nuanced) that there's a pattern of Brazilian fans acting disrespectful and unnecessarily hostile, making them stand out from other countries' fans by a matter of degree and consistency. It wouldn't be hypocritical to make that observation.

    • @Forward To The Past At least they are not invading other countries as Russia and the USA do.

    • do you know why the glover lasted so long? he was almost knocked out and the audience never stopped screaming all the time screaming I believe for those who are Portuguese and understood if this fight was somewhere else glover wouldn't do what he did today endure what he endured believe me

  • Proud of Glover! His career was literally one of the best in MMA. He never give up. He came to US as an immigrant, not knowing what to expect, but he had a dream to win in life and that's what he did. Truly champion and will always be. Thanks for putting in the show for us 🥋🥇
