Thats right Diaz, stir up the pot and try to stay relevant.
Hendricks is a BAMF and most deffinetly the top contender. I honestly cant remember a contender having a harder road to the WW title...maybe any title.
Fitch had wins over Alves and Sanchez.(1 top ten, arguabley 2)
BJ Penn had 0 fights(0 top tens)
Alves had wins over Kos and Hughes(1, arguabley 2 top tens)
Dan hardy had wins over Mike Swick and Marcus Davis(0, arguabley 1 top ten)
Koscheck had wins over AJ and Paul Daley(0, arguabley 1 top ten)
Jake Shields had a win over Kampmann(arguabley 1 top ten)
Now Carlos Condit had a 5 fight win streak, with a alot of good names, but those names were'nt so established when Condit fought/beat them.
Jake Ellenberger-First fight in the UFC, not top ten. (Controversial win for Condit)
Rory Mcdonald- Second fight in the UFC, not top ten(Controversial win for Condit)
Dan Hardy- Lost to GSP, then fought Condit. I wouldnt call him top ten, but for the sake of argument lets say he was "arguabley top ten"
DHK-I wouldnt personally call him top ten for wins over Nate Diaz and Amir Sadollah., but again lets go with "Arguabley top ten"
Nick Diaz- 11 fight win-streak over some decent names, top ten.(Controversial win for Condit)
Then we got Johnny Hendricks.. who has wins over:
Mike Peirce by decision(not top ten)
Then Jon Fitch with a vicous first round KO(Deffinetly top 10, arguabley top 5)
Then Josh Koscheck by decision(Top ten, arguabley top 5)
Then Martin Kampmann by vicous first round KO(Deffinetly top 5)
Fitch/Koscheck/Kampmann>>>>>> Every other WWs road to the title. Possibly the hardest road in UFC WW history.
If they dont do GSP/AS next, Hendricks has GOT to be next in line....but we've seen crazier things happen.
