I had no problem with Diaz getting the title shot after coming over from Strikeforce or beating Penn. After beating Penn, I thought he wholeheartedly deserved it.
As far as him getting this title shot after a loss and coming off a suspension, it's ridiculous and I'm starting to lose respect for the UFC because of it. Chael Sonnen gets a title shot in a weight class he hasn't fought at in years, and is coming off of a loss. Frankie Edgar is getting a title shot in a different weight class after TWO losses. And now Diaz getting a shot after losing? At least Rua/Gustaf will determine a legitimate contender on Saturday.
Oh well. I get to see Diaz fail again. And I love to see him fail and throw a fit.
