He had a pretty easy road it's true, but at the same time, everyone recognizes his potential, I don't think you will find too many people who will complain about his easy (relatively) road. I definitely would like to see him fight someone on that list before he fights for the title, but I don't care that much, I'm quite sure he would get a shot eventually either way.

Besides, who else could you give it too? Machida coming off a loss, Rampage turned it down, Rashad injured, Couture is too old, Franklin lost, Thiago Silva had a decent win, but just hasn't been that impressive. Griffin would be the most likely candidate for me, especially since his previous win over Shogun would make a nice back story, it might have made more sense to give him a shot and make JBJ fight one of the others, but I can live with Jones getting the shot instead.

Now the kid really gets to sink or swim.
