Rua got his shot after beating a washed up chuck.

Edgar got his shot before Maynard. after losing thier first fight he beat 3 ok-ish fighters to line up Penn.


Lesnar?... 3 times!

Hardy? beat 1 top 15 guy only.

Cote? ummm

Leites? Gets battered by Marquart and won via fouls.

It goes on...
You the man!

Plus, he was supposed to fight at least 1 more time to get his shot, but the situation is already known - rampage not taking the chance - and so, Jones was ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT CHOICE: excellent run of results, great momentum, very talented and skilled young fighter, motivated!!!

You are trolling - check
Your knowledge of MMA is terrible - check

PS: Kongo and Struve have a longer reach than Lesnar

I love this place!
