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!
    This^

    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.

Diaz is still the only real clear top guy for Hendrix to fight, should he beat KOS. Fitch would either hold Diaz down for 3 rounds or get his ass whooped badly on the feet, and personally I think Diaz could sub fitch too should it go to the ground. I really dislike Diaz, but as a fighter I think he's going to be the future WW champ of the UFC.
    That "holding him down" you refered to is called wrestling/effective top control, and it is the other guys job to stop. Fuck I am sick of wrestlers getting discredited because they exposed a hole in their opponents game, but in a non exciting way. It is the most annoying part of being an mma fan hands down.

    Are you saying that Chael does not deserve a title shot at LHW??
    Man, he said "YES" when all the rest said "NO". He is a warrior, he is a true american gangsta. He almsot defeated Anderson TWICE! He won the first Anderson fight and if it was not for his little slip, he would have definitely won the second fight.
    BTW Jones vs Chael is a fight everybody wants to see!! And Dana simply gives us the fights we wanna see!
    WAR CHAEL P. SONNEN!!!!



























    End of sarcasm

    The problem with Hendricks is that he is not entertaining outside the octagon. He does not talk shit, he does not say some stupid stuff. And everybody knows that it is very important to those things if you want to get a title shot.

    If Hendricks wants a title shot, he should begin a series of attacks towards GSP in Twitter. He should say that he promises that he will KTFO GSP, that GSP is a coward, that GSP sucks, that Nick Diaz is a bum and he would not waste time fighting that little punk ass bitchy thug. Stuff like that. He can do that for a couple of weeks and his chance of getting a shot will increase dramatically.

    I dont see the fight as a way to cement hendricks as the number 1 contender, but a way for UFC to discredit diaz. the guy is a great fighter but has soooo much baggage hes not worth the risk of having as a top guy. not hating at all, but he could win the title and flake out or fail a drug test and make the UFC look horrible.

    as mentioned earlier, iron fist vs iron jaw. hendricks' stock will rise 10 fold if he knocks out diaz and dana can blacklist him out as not being that good after all.

    but diaz has a natural ability to fuck everything up and will probably win. i kinda hope he does cause i still want to see him fight george

    I like Diaz a lot he is one of my Fav fighters but if Hendricks has to fight him to get a shot at GSP that's a travesty.

    If they do this it means the UFC only wants Diaz VS GSP for the money it can generate and devalues the belt imo

    How do you think he's going to be future champ? He couldn't beat Condit when he had that shot, and wrestlers like Fitch would grind him down. Fitch has some of the best wrestling, top game control and submission defense in the WW division. That is a recipe for disaster for Nick Diaz.
