He's earned a shot against a fringe top ten at this point. Instead the Dana is ass pounding every fighter in the division who's doing it right. No lube either. The model for a #1 contender fight can't be going 12-11, losing to every decent fighter you fight, then fight 7 guys outside the top 15 to leap frog numerous true contenders.
Congratulations to Matt though. It doesn't matter what the friek I think anyway, I'm a nobody trying to apply common sense when I already know there's a history no sense match making in the UFC. So while I hate the idea of how the fight came to be, I'll sure as hell be tuning in!
1st win of the streak- Brown was about to get cut. He should have fought somebody else that was about to get cut, or a newcomer.
2nd win of the streak- He should have been fighting either somebody else that had also recently ended their losing streak, a new guy that had won their debut, or a guy that was ranked top 15 but is on a losing streak.
3rd win of the streak- This is the turning point to me. This is the point where it is decided if the guy is on a legit streak or if he's just a guy that wins a few, and then loses a few. He should have been fighting a top 15 guy, or a young guy that is really making some waves.
4th win of the streak- The guy is on a 3 fight streak. He should be fighting in the 8-11th ranked guy range.
5th win of the streak- 4 wins including a fringe top 10 win. This is where title talks begin. He should be fighting the 1-7 guy.
6th win of the streak- if the last fight was against a top 3 guy, and there isn't a monsterous traffic jam up top, then this should be his title fight. If his last fight was in the 4-7 range, then he should be guaranteed a title shot with a win here, and this fight should be against a top 5 guy.
7th win of the streak- Nobody should get to this many wins, all in the same weight class, without a title shot.
All of this could be fixed with better planning on the UFC's part, a real rankings set up that matters, and more consistent title defenses.
