Other fighters were only offered a short notice replacement fight, not this full camp fight after 6 months. That was an exclusive Chael loudmouth Sonnen gift, any other fighter would be glad to accept that's pretty much the reason they fight.

This has been hammered to death, I've voiced my displeasure but I'm over it, I'll just say if you're that against it, then simply don't buy it. Speak with what matters, your wallet not your keyboard.

If the buys for 156, 158, and 159 bomb then the UFC will understand the fans don't want these match ups, but if they flourish then the UFC will continue to book these kind of match ups.

Hooters, BWW, streamthisbitch.com, you have options if you don't wanna buy it.

You can thank all the people that fed and stroked Chael's personality during the Anderson Silva fights. All the people loving Chael and making him a HUGE seller is the sole reason he is getting a title shot at 205 right now.

There have been a variety of reasons and circumstances that lead to title shots after losing.

Randy losing LHW title fight then next fight for HW title. Before that though he lost HW title fight then next fight was for the LHW Interim title.

Nick Diaz lost Interim title fight, next fight with GSP for WW title.

Chael Sonnen obviously as mentioned.

Dan Henderson lost LHW title fight to Rampage and his next fight he lost MW title fight to Spider. Obviously unique situation since he was 2 division Pride Champion unifying titles.

BJ Penn, Shogun and Frankie Edgar lost title fights and then got immediate rematches.

BJ, Shogun, and Frankie aren't really the same, they were controversial decisions where a lot of people thought they got robbed. Edgar and Diaz aren't the guys I'd have gave title shots to but in reflection it's not the most absurd thing, Chael has no business getting a title shot especially when there's Gus, Hendo, Machida, and soon Glover and Cormier out there. It should be Jones/Hendo and Machida/Sonnen.

I wasn't following MMA when Randy fought Sylvia, I have no clue why he got a title shot back then.

That's why I said a variety of reasons and circumstances. Same with Hendo having a unique situation.

Randy got a title shot cause the HW divison was a joke and very, very thin and Randy was a legend and former Champion. So the best fight they could make was getting Randy back and giving him a shot. At that time Randy was trying to get out of UFC contract to fight Fedor.

EDIT: I guess the Fedor shit came after the Timmy fight. But still Randy got the fight because the HW division was a joke. Just like Brock got a shot at the HW title on a 1 fight win streak. Joke of a division with no depth.

It isn't a new thing. Back in the day it was more because of the lack of contenders and big names.

The 2 recent ones, Diaz and Sonnen are due to selling more. Diaz was given it because he sells well and he fought a close fight to the #2 WW. Sonnen is getting it because he is a mouth that sells and they wanted to revive TUF.

Sonnen is getting this shot because he stepped up when no one else would.

It may be the TRT, but his balls are that big.

I think both of you are wrong. Chael is not getting a shot cause no one else would that is just incorrect. Not taking a fight on short notice and not wanting to fight Jones are two completely different animals. Right now Hendo is healed up and willing to fight Jones. Machida said he is not just willing to fight Jones, he wants his chance with a full champ to fight Jones. We have willing and able contenders but Chael got alot of attention when Jones refused to fight him on short notice. Then the trash talk came in and that alone is the reason he is fighting for the title next. Because of the media shitstorm following the cancelled event.

Also Diaz is not getting his shot because he sells. He is getting it because he pissed off GSP enough for GSP to actually request the fight. It wasn't a fight presented to him by Zuffa it was a fight he brought to Zuffa.
