He deserves it, he fought his way back in & hopefully he'll have a few surprises for Chuck & everyone else who saw him get beat with ease the last time they met.

I think that the Forrest fight was close winning 1 round does not count in my book as winning a fight. To say it should have been a 10-8 I dont agree and only one of the 3 judges agreed with you. That being said, who else should be ahead of him? - Nobody

I agree, the Tito / Forrest fight was alot closer than most people like to admit but in the judges eyes he won, so with that being said there really isn't anyone else at this moment that deserves a title shot, Rashad needs a few more fights to prove he's deserving of a title shot and the others just need to keep on winning they'll get their turn

i agree 100%. as i've said before, it seemed like babalu stepped out of his comfort zone as a fighter and tried to outstrike chuck, because maybe he suspected taking it to the ground might not work, for good reasons. but obviously, babalu's game plan didn't work. i wonder what's next for him?

Teach the noob, senseis...

Is there an objective number of matches and a corresponding record a fighter should have before that fighter can get a title shot?

(By the way, if you don't believe there should be a specific number of fights and that title shots should be based on subjective criteria, then this argument is pointless. I recommend you accept that the UFC's subjective choices will differ from individual fans' and that those choices can't be completely internally consistent. Otherwise you'll drive yourself crazy.)

Anyway, assuming there should be a set number of fights/wins before you get a shot at the title, does the UFC have enough fighters to sustain it? Let's say that a fighter must have 4 UFC fights (all wins, I assume) before he gets a shot, is the UFC deep enough with quality talent to allow it? OR, would you accept a guy fighting a couple of "cans" to get the requisite record?

[quote=Quietus]Teach the noob, senseis...

1) Noob? I may be a newbie to the website but I been in the MMA scene for a long time. I jsut might teach you a little

2) You have how many posts? Yeah that's what I thought...

3) I merely stated that Rashad needed more fights to ready himself and gain experience before being fed to the wolves like the UFC has done to many other fighters.

4) I also was not implying that the UFC should set a minimum wins / fights before allowing someone to have a title shot.

5) Last but not least, everyone must pay their dues first and in my opinion Rashad has not paid his dues yet , if he is deserving of a title shot then when will Diego get his? Diego definitley has paid his dues...

By the way fellow "Noob", this is my opinion and simply that, I am entitled to it and you are entitled to yours but be wise on how you state your opinion.

Tito did not get his shot too quick. He is the unquestioned #1 contender.
