What kind of streak, how many top 10 wins, etc. What are your minimum requirements in order for a fighter to get a title shot?
Hard to say what the streak should be because each division has different level of depth of not only fighters, but HIGHLY RANKED fighters.
The LW division is loaded. Ranking the guys is hard cause A lot of the guys are so closely ranked but I would say 5-6 wins, with 3 top 15 wins.
The HW is not as loaded, so maybe 3 wins, with at least 1 top 10 win.
WW, MW, LHW are fairly deep divisions, so perhaps 4-5 wins, with at least 2 top 10 wins.
