Second, the UFC gave Cain a second shot after getting KOed in under a minute and beating Bigfoot of all people. For White to say it's because Vitor ate a front kick is downright foolish. If it's the TRT thing, come up with a better excuse for the press.
My point was that Vitor has earned it. Whether he should get another shot is of course debatable, but there's little question of whether he's earned it. People who constantly call for him to fight 'one more guy' need to bugger off.
What excuse tho? You are acting like Vitor keeps getting passed up.
And yes he hasn't looked like hesitant Vitor...because he fought Luke Rockhold and Bisping. 2 guys who aren't exactly "killers".
I'm not opposed to Vitor getting another shot. I'm just not going to get all mad when a guy who basically has to fight in Brazil and already lost a title shot via 1st round KO, doesn't get another title shot right this second. Between losing by KO already, being a TRT monkey, and turning down Mousasi, I don't feel sorry at all for him...He just had a title shot at 205. He thinks he is entitled to anything now.
