Gil has one of if not the best deal in the business.

PPV cut, analyst gig, free TV exposure in TUF and a title shot.

And a whole lot of money, Gil won big.

He didn't. He does not deserve a shot to the title , in my opinion. Actually , I Don't understand why in the toughest division in the UFC with more than 15, monsters the golden shot went to that guy who didn't do anything impressive in the UFC

Anyway I don't think Gil deserved the shot, but since the other top 10 fighters are mostly booked of not ready for a title shot or rematches for Pettis I can see how it happened. Oh, and getting more Mexicans in high profile fights will help expand the UFC's market, so it's also good for business.

Should be a good fight, so I don't mind.

hes a top 5 LW who hasnt already lost to pettis.

Cerrone & Henderson would both be ahead in line if they hadn't already lost to pettis recently.

TJ Grant was ahead but hes injured
Thomson was ahead of Gil but didnt want to wait.
Nate Diaz decided he wants to flip burgers.

so who else is higher ranked that should get a shot first?
