Well, not quite, as he doesn't need a LW win...but if your point was that he's shouldn't need to earn anything to move up and face Bendo, you're probably right.
Do you think dana would make Georges jump through a hoop to face Anderson at 185, or make Anderson jump through one to face Jones? Do you think Jones would have to "earn" a shot at Velasquez if he wanted to move up?
I still think Aldo is getting shafted here.
I'm not in favor of champs dictating title shots at all...but I think the playing field has been messed with so much, it's just goofy.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
