Poirier was pretty much no.1 contender when they fought.
You can't seriously watch the KZ V Garcia fight and claim that Garcia won. There's a reason he got pushed up the rankings after that fight and it's because everybody that watched aside from two judges ringside thought he won.
Also if you are gonna bring up WEC losses then how about Lamas getting finished by Alcantara and Danny Castillo?
The nod could've gone to either guy.. I'm just hoping they still have a good fight for Lamas.
Alcantara last I checked is a top 10 FW.
KZ has one good win in his career basically. Well Omigawa is solid.
Koch, Hioki, Cub, Mat Grice >>>>>>>>Leonard garcia, Mark Hominick, Poierier.
Just saying. On paper, Lamas deserves it more. Especially considering he has 2 nice wins since the last time KZ even fought.
I like KZ. I'm just saying, this idea that he is some long awaited #1 contender is completely false.
