Chris is the most deserving contender at this time but a Rockhold unification title fight could happen and still have some respect to the weight class title.
This is why I like brackets it's simple who your next match is, and there still will be room to jockey fights due to injuries and such. It's not like the UFC title holder is going up against Belator's or M1's it's all in house title fights. So the UFC has total control, but instead they will sacrafice creditablity for extra dollars today with WWE antic's.
