What happened to Cormier "kicking Jones' ass in the fall"?

I could care less about Hendo, Gus, or even Machida getting a title shot. I want Bones to hurt Cormier and make him eat his words for 25 minutes.

And I like Sonnen. It's just a shame how people can TALK themselves into title shots these days.
Oh shut up with all the CRYING! I'm so sick of hearing how Chael talked his way into this title shot. Everyone else had the opportunity before Chael was given it and they turned it down so SHUT THE HELL UP about it. STOP ******* crying already.

I think Mousasi takes this fight, Machida will KO Hendo so lets have Machida vs Mousasi for the #1 contender fight.

Really, bro.

Ppl complain about Chael fighting for the title at 205, and say nothing about Rashad being a candidate to fight Silva at 185.

If they take issue with Chael fighting for the title due to him not fighting in that weight class recently, why does Rashad get a free pass to fight Silva when he's never competed at that weight in his career?

Likewise with Daniel Cormier. He's never fought at 205, and people seem to have no problem with him fighting Jones.

Don't see a reason Chael fighting Jones is a big deal or anything out of the ordinary.

Where is your evidence for this? I take issue with both of those fights too, neither of which will happen now.

I guess they will tell Hendo to sit out another year and try his luck when he is 44 years old.

The matchups Silva is making in this division are stupid. Lets give Hendo a stalking brawler a fairy who dances around for rounds. Lets say if Gustaf wins his next fight he gets a shot. But lets give him Mousasi a guy many casual fans don't even know. That fight in Swedan on some sort of delay or weird time live isn't a good way to promote a possible title contender.

Chael's coming off a loss, that's everyone's main gripe pretty much, I'd have no problem with it if he had smashed Forrest like I thought he would its also not an intriguing fight like Glover, Hendo, Gus, or Cormier.

Machida will take Hendo out of the picture though.

Hendro has a better chance of beating Jones than Machida, Gus, or Sonnen.
