Kennedy is a big step down when Vitor has earned a step up; but I think a lot of people assumed that was a gimme fight while the title is being held out. But now Vitor, while never promised a title shot, is turning down other options. This is not going to help him with DW and the UFC. And saying the weight cut is too hard is ridiculous. If you can't make weight, go to a higher weight class.

What's really interesting to me is the comparison of situations. DW explicitly said Vitor was NOT in line for the title prior, but now he's refusing anything else. And yet the same people here who called Weidman "entitled" for complaining about DW declaring him the #1 contender and then not getting the shot are now supporting Vitor...
