You got Ross Fisher who beat Spencer Fisher and Dennis Siver comfortably, but got dominated by Cole Miller. Cole Miller has that win but lost convincingly to Matt Wiman. Wiman has a win over Danzig too however lost a clear decision to Sam Stout.
Stout has that win another good win over Joe Lauzon, however lost to Jeremy Stephens. Stephens also beat Cole Miller but lost to both Spencer Fisher and Joe Lauzon. its so damn confusing!
For the love of God can someone just go on a run like Jim Miller has so we can get some sort of idea where everyone stands!!
Good points, but the reality is: MMA math doesn't work!
Daley beat Kampmann
Kampmann beat Paulo Thiago
Paulo Thiago beat Koscheck
Koeschek beat Daley
SOme of the fights you brought up happened some time ago. That's the key.
For a fighter, all that matters are his latest performances.
You can go on a 5-0 run, but if you lose, you pretty much have to start all over again. And in that time, another fighter may jump in front of you.
Soti for example. He was 7-0 in the UFC. This loss means a lot. Before this fight he was 1-2 fights atay from a title shot. Now, i would say he is 3-4 fights away, if not more, given the massive talent in this division.
And yes, Miller has a great chance of getting the title shot. If he wins by TKO or submission, i think he gets the shot. If he takes a decision, he may be forced to fight another time before getting his shot.
WInner of Guida-Pettis, Siver and Guillard are the names that can make a claim for a title shot.
Let's not forget, Pettis had the title shot promissed by the UFC, and we all know what happened.

NO F***in way!
As much as i like BJ....that would be retarded.
Let him earn a title shot!
Edgar and Maynard worked their asses off to get a title shot.
And guys like Guida, Guillard, Soti, Miller, Siver and others are in the same situation. Miller is on a 6-0 run, Guillard on a 7-1, Soti was on a 7-0 run also, Siver is on a 7-1 run.
If BJ drops back down, let him fight at least 2 contenders before getting a shot.
Names souldn't get you title shot.
Victories should get you title shots!
