I guess the best fighting the best isn't cool anymore...If Goose beats Manuwa, he should get then next title shot. If Phil Davis beats Rumble in April, I'd put him before Cormier--if Cormier wins.
But I do get a kick out of fans who simply don't want their favorite fighter to face a threat. It's an entirely weird mindset for me...back when Anderson was still champ and he was ducking rematches and then ducking Weidman, you'd have guys who had no problem with him facing Maia within a year of Maia getting KO'd. When Georges had Hendricks on the docket, fanboys were clamoring to make excuses why Diaz was a legitimate fight. And now Jones shouldn't have to fight Goose again, or Cormier ever...
whatever. The UFC has fucked up fans in general with bullshit overhype, but it's just sad when someone has it twisted in their skull that they can call someone the best, while simultaneously hoping that they don't have to fight anyone good to prove it.
