The thing is that this is how it should have went, and should go to even the lowest of the low.

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.
