Its EXTREMELY annoying
I'm a Huge Randy fan, but I agree it is annoying. I have always wanted to see him fight some upper level guys on the way to a title shot, and to earn it.
However, you can't argue with the reasoning behind it for the UFC. Randy is extremely popular and makes them some good money when he headlines a card. Hell, if I were them, I'd try and keep him in title shots all the time too, even there was only the slimmest justification for it.
