Soooo Hendricks should have to fight and beat 4 top 10 guys in a row to get a shot.
...And Diaz gets to lose his #1 contender shot, then immediatly get another one?
Makes no sense to me.
Johnny Hendricks is the only answer imo. IMO Hes absolutley the #1 contender, and no other current(maybe even past) contender in any division has had to go through a harder road to the title. (someone correct me though If Im wrong)
Everyone is saying Weidman! Weidman!, but fact is hes got two solid wins. One was top ten in Mark Munoz.
While Johnny Hendricks has 3 top tens in a row, arguabley all of them top 5.
If he were to beat Diaz hed be the "undisputed P4P WW Contender" lol, he'd pretty much beat the entire top 5-7 minus Carlos Condit.
I dont even know why Diaz is still being mentioned in the title picture, I love the guy and hes one of my favourite but he lost, he need to work his way back up. And no way in hell does he deserve a match with Hendricks.
If Hendrick's next fight isnt for the title Id be pissed. If they do GSP/Silva nexy and I was Hendricks, Id wait. Whats the sense of fighting Carlos condit coming off a lost, or Nick Diaz coming of a lost, when you already earned the shot and have more top tens wins then anybody else?
