Why are people so set on giving Weidman a title shot? He only has 9 fights. His most impressive win is a submission over Tom Lawlor. His win over Maia was sloppy(I don't blame him at all for that but that's the truth), he beat a fat Mark Munoz, Alessio Sakara and some guy named Jesse Bongfeldt.
I recognize that he's a very good fighter, but he hasn't established his name yet. No casual fan has ever heard of him and the PPV wouldn't sell well. Let him beat someone like Belcher, Bisping etc THEN we can talk about title shots. No need to rush it.
Plus, Weidman is turning down fights too so he's no different.
