Sometimes it is right place at the right time.

I actually think it has to do with the amount of crap DW gets when he declares only one of the fighters having a chance for a title shot. Last time he did it his twitter account nearly died, so to get less flak he makes the general statement with his hopes on his pre-planned outcome. Unfortunately for him they very rarely work out how he intends them to.
