| | Help! Update needed re: LHW division title picture
So I was gone on a snowboarding trip the last week and a bit and have been out of the loop.
Last I heard it was pretty much a forgone conclusion that Rampage was getting the title shot. So now he's fighting Jardine?
Does that mean the winner of Machida vs. Silva gets the title shot? I'm fine with Machida getting the shot after a win but I don't think Thiago is quite ready, even after a win here.
Or, is the UFC giving the shot to winner of Rampage vs Jardine? Even though it would be a long layoff, I guess that would make sense for Rampage. However, would Jardine deserve, or even take, a shot at the title after this win.
Too many scenario's for my brain to handle right now. What if Thiago and Jardine both win, who gets the next shot? What if Machida and Rampage both win, is there time for them to BOTH get shots or will it only be one of them. Did Rashad ask for a break? Is that why this Jardine vs Rampage fight came out of left-field.
