Honestly.. 1 fight each as crazy as that sounds. Dana White is already on record saying Sonnen might get a Title Shot against Jon Jones if he got past Forrest Griffin. Cant believe that Sonnen could almost get a Title Shot after talking alot of trash and a loss from a Title Fight in another Division, and at worst could get a Title Shot after beating a Forrest Griffin that no longer has the heart.

I can expect the same treatment for Nick Diaz when he comes back. He probably just needs 1 win and talk alot of trash and he is a shoe in for a Title shot after.

White/UFC as we have seen recently no longer cares who wins or loses anymore to get a Title Shot. Machida was going to get a rematch with Jones after 1 win after he got the 1st shot after 1 win. And Frankie Edgar was going to fight for a Title coming off a loss after a Title Fight in another Division.
