The number of fights Weidman has shouldn't be taken into account when it comes to a title shot, especially when he's won 8 of those 9 fights in very impressive fashion.
9 fights only doesn't mean he can't get a title shot.

It just means a guy with 9 fights isn't entitled to anything. Especially in fighting the best of all time. It shouldn't be so dramatic as if he is getting robbed of a shot if he doesn't get it right this second. He has been inactive and is currently hurt as well.

Brock got the shot because he was the biggest seller in UFC history. Cain got a shot because HW was thin as ****. So it isn't like your examples are totally similar. Neither of those guys were sitting on the bench with injury calling for title shots either.
