The only people that should get title consideration at this point over Gil and Eddie is Pettis. That's assuming he beats Cowboy. But after that both men are more deserving then Cowboy, even with a win over Pettis and Maynard, who has fought for the title in 2 of his last 3 fights.
So unless people are biased against the non UFCers, I don't see any issue with this. Plus with the new info that came out today the wording of the contract does not guarantee an immediate title shot. It's a "quick shot" with possibility of immediate.
