That's a much better track record than any other WW (excluding GSP but he's the champ). I can't think of any WW contendor that has had that impressive of a streak to get a title shot, hell there are very few contenders for any belt that had to do this.
Zuffa, give him his bloody title shot!
Try to think of ANY other contender in ANY other division that had to go through such a gauntlet or warriors....Ill save everybody some time and say there is none.
In one of the other threads I posted every other WWs contender road and even GSP himself didnt have such a tough road to the title.
Johnny Hendricks is without a doubt the rightful #1 contender at WW. It makes Zero sense for him to have to fight anybody else.
Shit If I was JH and they did GSP/AS next Id wait it out. Whats he going to do, fight Nick Diaz coming off a lost in his contender fight? Or Carlos Condit coming of a lost in his title fight? And if either one of those guys win they
get the title shot?
A 3 fight win streak over top 10s-5s is something that Champs are currently doing, No other contenders.
God hates me, never keep my banger on safety
My mother raised me alone, you can't break me
Like my hearts pumpin the blood of Royce Gracie! 13-4-1 in sig/av
