To be fair, submitting Gomi with a gorgeous armbar, putting a beating on Cerrone and ending his hype and beating Miller would definitely warrant him a shot. LW was so packed at one point but somehow everybody found a way to get derailed.

I could see them doing Pettis/Diaz for the title shot in the mean time. Maybe even put it on the same card.

If he beats Miller, Diaz has easily earned a shot. Thats an impressive streak.

It doesn't matter who wins between Nate and Miller neither deserves a title shot and both would be dominated by whoever the champion is. Ellenberger should get the shot over Hendricks if he faces and beats Kampmann. Especially if the champion is GSP since Jake has better TDD and striking than Hendricks.

Diaz's streak would be far more impressive than Hendricks, who flash KO'ed Fitch, and would have to beat Koscheck. Diaz had one of the best armbars I've seen, beat Cerrone for 3 rounds, and if he beats Miller, it won't be by KO, so it would probably be another impressive win.

Hendricks has Mike Peirce, Fitch and what would be, Kos. Don't know how you can say he deserves one and then say, Diaz doesn't.

I was really hoping Pettis would be next after the Edgar/Bendo rematch

I think Hendricks can beat Kos. Kos is not going to be able to overwhelm Hendricks with his wrestling and Kos has some overrated stand up.

I understand why they would not give Miller the shot if he wins considering he lost to both Bendo and Edgar already. The Edgar fight was a long time ago though.

To me it does not matter because Nate Diaz would lose to Bendo or Edgar.

Dont sleep on Hendricks, he is a great wrestler and has dynamite in his hands.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

Edit: Actually, I take that back. Miller should have some fights more since I was informed that Benson manhandled Miller and the rematch between those two would suck. So yeah. I think Dana does his thing and does this right here.
Maybe I need to watch the fight again, but I don't think Miller got "manhandled." He kept going for subs he couldn't finish, and got punched in the head a few times for every attempt. He was the aggressor throughout most of the fight but was just unable to finish Bendo.
