So if AS wanted a shot at Bones for the belt would he be at the back of the line at 205? or would his fights against James Irvin, Forrest and now bonnar be enough to get him a shot?
It seems like its a double standard for some fighters but not others. Rankings are opinion based at best, my 205 rankings could be different from yours, or RH's or even Joe Silvas.
Its these "rankings" that are killing good potential fights, ie Glover vs. Shogun (and anyone else for that matter who tunred down that fight because he wasnt a big enough draw)
Jones said something that i dont really agree with as well;
""A part of me wants to do it for the fans the other part of me feels as if it delegitimizes the importance of [a] championship," Jones tweeted.""
Delegitimizes the importancve of a championship? How so? Because he doesnt fit into your "rankings" yet fighting Vitor doesnt do the exact same thing?
For me it goes like this; Your the champion, you fight anyone that calls out your name. Thats the great thing about being champion, you have what everyone else wants, and if you arent willing to give everyone a shot at the belt then you shouldnt be the champion
maybe im oldschool or however you want to put it, thats just how i feel
