Time to disect this little baby!
Here is a list of reasons why BJ getting a title shot at WW is ok while Anderson getting one at LHW is not.
1.BJ is former WW Champion, Anderson isnt former LHW Champion.
This is true. The only reason BJ lost the WW title was because of contract disputes. But you forget that BJ already had a title shot against Matt Hughes and he lost. He hasn't done anything in WW division that would warrent him getting another one.
2. BJ lost a controversial spilt decision to the current WW champion.
Controversial? Hardly. At first I thought BJ won because he did more damage in the first round. But after thinking about it BJ hadn't done anything worthwhile in the next two rounds. Georges took him down at will and kept BJ on the ground. Even though it was LnP, Georges was still in control of that fight while BJ couldn't do much of his back. Therefore Georges won that match.
3.Anderson has no such grudge match with the current LHW Champ Forrest Griffin.
Won't dispute that!
4.There are a ton of fighters out there that can make a claim for a LHW title shot, Machida, Thiago Silva, Chuck, Wanderlei,and even Rashad are possible opponent for Forrest.
Can't really dispute that!
5.GSP has no such opponents, he has cleared out that division. He has beaten everyone in the division handily with the exception of BJ.[/QUOTE]
Not true! There is still Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez. MAybe even a rematch with your boy Kos. Besides that BJ hasn't cleared out the LW division. He still has Tyson Griffin, KenFlo, Frankie Edgar, and a rematch with Sherk.
As you can see I only half agree with you! Anderson doesn't deserve a title shot at 205. Hell, I don't think he even wants one considering that division belongs to his buddy, Machida. But BJ getting a shot at the WW title is riduculous. For one, he wasn't as dominant in LW division as GSP was in WW. He only had one title defense and now he is going to stall the LW division. It was bad enough that division was stalled because of Sherk's torn ACL and battling with CSAC because of steroid accusations. So why shouldn't people complain?
