I hear you man, normally I would agree with you, for example if someone was coming down from MW to fight GSP and bypass Hendricks that would be pretty stupid. But given the circumstances right now with the MW division I wouldn't mind if Rashad got the fast track on this one.

And on the issue of champ vs champ I think it works if it makes sense (wouldn't mind if Rockhold or Cormier got an immediate shot), but it should definitely not be set in stone that a champ from a different org gets an immediate Title shot. Safferdine is a good example of when it shouldnt happen.
