When a guy coming off a year long suspension and a loss got a title shot and another man who lost eight times against less than steller competition yet he was also granted a title shot.

and now a man who almost died at the hands of the champion...he too gets a title shot.

Chris Weidman going from the less deserving to most deserving off the title contenders.

"memories like the corner of my mind"
Weidman became the most deserving contender when guys coming off losses started getting title shots.
