People when talking about Jones-Sonnen have been seen to say Sonnen talked himself into a title shot with Silva, he beat Dan Miller, Yushin Okami, Nate Marquardt, Brian Stann and Bisping himself to get his title shots. Bisping should have to do more than he has.
Funny he is fighting Belfort though, the king of undeserved title shots all he had to do was beat Franklin 195lbs and he gets his title shot even staying number 1 contender for over a year.
After losing to Maia, Sonnen beat Miller, Okami and Marquardt to get his first title shot.
For his second shot he beat Stan and a won a debatable decision over Bisping.
Since losing to Silva, Bisping has beat Miller, Akiyam, Riveria, Miller. Then a debatable lose to Sonnen followed by beating Stan.
IF he beats Belfort then of course he deserves his shot, If Bisping wins then he would have done as much as Sonnen has, except he only will have had ONE title shot.
