There's no reason to think both these guys won't fit that criterion in the near future. In fact, one will almost certainly fit that criterion after this fight and if the loser can't win his next fight either, well he wasn't going to make much of a champ anyway.
You would hope so, but it's definitely not every time. Sonnen got a shot at Jones when he had literally 0 chance.
Belforts shot at Jones he had very little, and better fighters were available.
Diazs shot at gsp he stood very little chance, and johnny hendricks was about.

Cain would completely destroy Werdum. Browne has a chance against Cain though. One guy is very unathletic and also a one-trick pony, the other could keep up with Cain.
