It could be wrong. It was a long time ago, but I thought Bader was decently ranked at the time Jones beat him. Not a top contender but at least a top ten that was a big prospect and working his way up the ranks at the time.

If DC does get a title shot, it wouldn't be because of UFC 170, but because of his previous accomplishments.

I actually don't have a problem with DC needing another fight or two at LHW before he gets a title shot. If Goose past Jimi, he should get the next shot, in my opinion. I'd give Cormier the winner of Davis/AJ...unless Goose loses and Davis wins. If that happens, I'd give Davis the next shot.
The precedent is there...but there are too many viable options right now to employ it without backlash.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
