If Dana was so sure about Weidman being the number 1 contender why has this fight not been made yet? By his own words whatever the fight is the fight is.

I could absolutely see saying that Vitor earned the shot. It's not great, but if Bisping would have gotten the shot with a win, then so should Vitor. But there's no way in hell a sane person says that Rockhold is the #1 contender.
A sane person would say that Rockhold is the current mw champion. You don't disrespect the champion from another organization by making the suggestion that he has to earn his shot.
On what universe does that happen? On what universe is it acceptable to have 2 champions in the same division?
What I get from people complaining about Silva vs Rockhold is that "yea basically I know you're the champion from SF but your belt isn't worth shit here.... so earn your shot bitch".
