Cole is a vet. A win over a vet with a recognizable name IS a big win.

Please, that was one of the biggest joke title shots I've seen in UFC, right up there with Chael vs Jones and the Brock circus.
That is an old, dumb and tired tactic used on this site to try and discredit someone. Using the list of who a fighter did not fight can be done to so many contenders in every division over the years and is a pointless way to address it.

The guy below answers it for you.

Swick vs Hardy was touted as a #1 contender fight (for both guys, not just Swick) which is why GSP was in attendance. I do agree with you though, sherdoggers like to use revisionism in regards to Hardy's title shot, when at that time Marcus Davis and Mike Swick were VERY good wins.

Davis had won 13 of his last 14 fights prior to the Hardy bout (the lone loss being to Swick) whilst Mike Swick was 9-1 in the ufc and unbeaten as a welterweight.

The other top guys at 170 at the time all had recent losses to GSP so one-sidedly that there was no desire for a rematch.

Alves- literally JUST lost against GSP.

Koscheck- in a bit of a win one-lose one slump (recent losses to Alves and Paulo Thiago)

Fitch- Recent one sided loss to GSP

Hughes- Two losses to GSP and thinking about retirement

any win is big for someone with a personality. I wouldnt be suprised if he got a title eliminator fight after this... even though he doesnt deserve it.
