Well you may think that the fighter would crush him but it's a matter of earning it tbh. Imagine DC getting the title shot over Gustaffson, wouldn't that be weird?
Imo Gustaffson getting a title shot over Hendo and Machida would be much wierder. Machida was #1 contender and Hendo has a title shot. That takes priority to me by far. The man who beat Gustaf is still fighting around him and his only loss is to Rashad Evans in a #1 contender fight. Gustaf needs to beat Phil Davies to be a contender right now to me.
