Not sure why he loses his shot due to injury
. But Reem keeps his shot after getting suspended for roids.

Hendo didn't even decline a fight either. So Dana has no room to talk there.
My guess is that he lost his shot because he hid his injury for so damn long. Wasn't he injured something like 2 or 3 weeks prior to telling Dana he was injured 8 days before the event? Hell, if I was dana, Hendo would be fighting his way back up from the very bottom.

WHY does everyone keep forgetting that Hendo wanted to fight on despite being injured? The doctor is the one who stopped him. He obviously didn't let anyone know the extent of the injury beforehand, so that Bones' camp knew he was injured and could exploit that should he gotten the licence to fight.

Sure, it wasn't the smartest thing to do. But since when has Hendo claimed to be a genius....


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

To answer the OP's original question, I would say yes. Simply because I currently find the list of contenders at LHW very unappealing. The only ones of interest have either already lost or already turned down a fight with the champion.

Like it or not, Sonnen did two things right. One, he was there when the UFC needed him to be, and two, he put up the best fight(s) to date against the best fighter in the world.

In my opinion this opportunity that he's been gifted proves two things. If you're there for the UFC, they will be there for you... and a loss to Anderson Silva does very little to hurt your career.

And this is all coming from one of the biggest anti-Sonnen guys on this board, as the majority of you can attest to.

I hope Hendo never gets the shot... Just to piss him off. **** Dan Henderson.

There is no one at 205 I'm interested in seeing fight Jones. He's already soundly beaten all of the top contenders and everyone bellow that will get destroyed.

He might as well just fight Chael cos the build up will be immense. Wonder what odds we can get one Jones crying?

Where did I get the idea from? From my gut.

Turns out I was right.




Actually, Sideways, turns out you were wrong.
Actually i wasnt wrong. Everything that played out in the LHW division has been a bit "different". Chael was offered to coach TUF. Which again is a different circumstance as to why he is going to fight Jones. If he was fighting Jones in April without coaching TUF. Then id be wrong...

pretty sure your still wrong lol.

Don't know why your defending yourself though. I don't think he was trying to insult you saying "AHAHA YOUR WRONG!!!". Just kinda a thing nobody saw coming.

Dominick Cruz | Jose Aldo | Donald Cerrone | Vitor Belfort | Fedor | Daniel Cormier

It was kind of a joke...

The "technical" WELL TECHNICALLY HE ISNT GETTING A TITLE SHOT. HE IS COACHING TUF WHICH OFFERS A TITLE SHOT.

Maybe i did it wrong.

Let me try again... *Clears Throat*

Wow! UFC look more favourably on 4 decent rounds over Anderson Silva and coming off a loss, as opposed to beating Shogun, Fedor and being former SF LHW champ!

Sorry, the decision to award Sonnen a title fight for having a big mouth is a dumb as f**k idea!

Ive just never liked him. He comes across as a total ass and he always appears to be whining or whinging about something.

I dont like the way people are always all over his nuts and I hate his face.
