Man, MMA fans are ridiculous. I don't see how anyone, anywhere, can complain if a fighter is being "gifted" a title shot yet by thier own words would smash everyone in the weight class. Where it the logic?

Well you may think that the fighter would crush him but it's a matter of earning it tbh. Imagine DC getting the title shot over Gustaffson, wouldn't that be weird?

Imo Gustaffson getting a title shot over Hendo and Machida would be much wierder. Machida was #1 contender and Hendo has a title shot. That takes priority to me by far. The man who beat Gustaf is still fighting around him and his only loss is to Rashad Evans in a #1 contender fight. Gustaf needs to beat Phil Davies to be a contender right now to me.

Could just turn out schedule wise that he is ready, lets be real Gutaf is supposedly getting it, Machida/Hendo is supposedly getting it, Sonnen is doing the TUF and now Cormier. Truth is with injuries and what not who ever is ready to go when Jones is will be fighting him.

I have nothing against Cormier but this has gone beyond silliness. Does Dana have no concept of weight classes or climbing the ladder to a title shot anymore?

Dana needs to stop promising everyone and their brother a title shot.

If Glover does to Rampage what I think he'll do to him he'll probably say Glover's next or something like that.

There's absolutely no logic in gifting fighters title shots, especially when they have had ZERO fights in the UFC and there are many suitable candidates already in the division that have earned it and paid their dues.

Yes I do think Cormier will smash everyone at 205, but he has to earn it like the rest.

Big Cormier fan. But I don't understand why after having liver failure due to cutting that he would be willing to do it?

More power to him if he can get there healthy. I think he has the best shot of beating Jones out of pretty much anyone at 205.

Now this would make NO sense. It's not exactly tough to get a UFC title shot these days (see Edgar, Diaz, Sonnen). But, Cormier is pretty unknown and isn't even a LHW. Heck, I've never even seen Cormier fight.

I think DC would throw Jones on his back. He would also be hard to submit being so compact as a fighter.
