How do you earn a title shot?

It is one of the cloudy issues with the UFC, i mean some fighters get a shot with 3 fights some more etc, how about a straight league working up established rankings?

This is about making money, not BS ranking like in boxing. Who sells gets the fights. I dont care what organization it is ( for you Dana bashers ), if a fighter is 9-4 but is exciting and has never had a decision, he gets a TS before a 13-0 guy with 13 decisions.

And I love them for that!!!

I hate the no finish fighters (and I still consider Evans one). It get sooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring to watch them fight for decisions.
