Yes I thought Akiyama was about to get a titleshot after the fights he was getting.

I think Lesnar did get one favourable matchup in Heath Herring. I think Zuffa knew Herring lost his MMA motivation before the fight also.

Akiyama for sure has been matched with the most challenging fights and agree with most champions not having a path that difficult.

I think if you come into the UFC on an inflated record and an inflated contract to match Dana and co basically seem to want to punish you for costing them more money, they did it to a lot of guys that rode in on hype.

One fighter that comes to mind is Mike Pierce. He's gotten a few tough fights since his start.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre
