What does he need to prove? You do not see it in boxing, they have many differnat leagues and you dont have to prove your self in every one before fighting a champ in another one. And besides they are putting him in against Tomato Can anyway, so he will get his one fight. I really dought that he will be fighting in the UFC for very long anyway, we might as well give him the belt as soon as possible, so he can fight the best competion right away. I would like to see him fight Tim, AA and Randy with the rest of his fights, before he leaves to fight Fedor again.
Diego will have to wait at least 9 months for his title shot, but I think he needs to fight Matt Hueges or BJ before he gets a title shot, because until he beats one of those 2 he has not proven himself as the #1.
