I'm sick of everyone complaining about BJ getting a title shot and Anderson not!!

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.

2. BJ lost a controversial spilt decision to the current WW champion.

3.Anderson has no such grudge match with the current LHW Champ Forrest Griffin.

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.

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.




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

Anderson Silva also doesn't really have an interest in taking the LHW belt. He's stated that the LHW belt is Machida's. He took the fight with Irvin at the UFC's request.

Will almost completely disagree:

1- Point, but he never defended that title before bolting the UFC.

2- It's mainly only controversial to BJ nutties, though it was a very close fight.

3- That's encompassed in #2.

4- All divisions, except the HW division, has legitmate contenders- a lot of people just like to dismiss fights before they actually occur.

5- Seriously- he cleaned the division out with 1 title defense. Seriously?!?!

BJ shouldn't get a shot however neither should Anderson.

No one should get shots without earning them but when you have promotional titles that is something you have to get used 2.

Edit - Walker he has cleaned out the divison who deserves a shot. Thiago? He can't make weight. Diego? He needs a big win since he lost 2 in a row. Koscheck? GSP just beat him. There's no one to face ATM.

2nd edit I just read point 5 that's not true. He didn't beat Thiago or Diego just because they don't deserve title shots doesn't mean BJ does.

I didn't know Silva was getting a title shot. Chances are there will be complaints about that too.

I can't say I agree with any of your reasons though. 1-4 seem irrelevant and 5 is wrong.

Get used to it BJ getting the shot and keeping the lw division waiting for him is complete bullshit. If you want to jump weights there goes your belt simple as that.

jdun is right. People just hate BJ. Who is there at WW? People complain that Alves never made weight for his fight with Hughes, Koscheck lost to GSP and it wasen't really close. After those 2 there are a bunch of guys who are 1 or 2 fights away. Guys like Diego,Karo Kim,Yoshida and Swick are still a bit away.
On the other hand the LHW divison is a huge cluster fuc k, with lots of guys having a claim for a title shot.
But i don't like BJ holding both titles and defend both of them pick 1

He's not, he's already stated he won't challenge for the LHW Title because he feels it belongs to Machida.

This fight has to happen between BJ and GSP, the UFC knows, GSP knows, and BJ knows there is no better time for this fight to take place. Both men are considered unstoppable in their weight classes and have a natural grudge that could lead into a MAJOR rubber match. I'd hate to see this fight take the plunge the Liddel/Wanderlei fight had happened with both fighters going on losing streaks.



This Time ... Break It!

Im not saying BJ deserves a WW title shot. I am just stating reasons why he is getting one and Anderson isnt. Im just sick of hearing Silva fans are cry about it.

All those fighters being one to two fights away, is still closer then BJ penn who should be, the maximum number of fights away.

Imo, the best case for Bj penn vs GSP is the event its taking place. The new years eve event is generally about putting on a spectacular show and has more room for "unfair" fights.
