So what? It's a title fight and it shouldn't just be based on who's got time that night. In my opinion Mir moved down the pecking order after the loss against Brock and is pretty much the last person to deserve another title match. He looked great in his rebound fight, but a single win over a guy who is also coming off a loss shouldn't earn you a title match.
