He earned his title shot. This is clearly not the same scenario.

The only reason the ufc placed this fight on the card is so they can promote the fact that there's two title shots. It's all about getting that money from the casual fans.

Quite true..

It's a truly terrible fight, there's no getting round it.

The McCall-Pickett winner would have been a better choice while we wait for Dodson to heal.

I want the UFC to offer DJ the chance to challenge for the 135 belt. Losing to a bigger champion didn't stop BJ Penn from still being a legit, dominant and brilliant lightweight champion afterwards. And DJ would have a decent chance vs Dillashaw I think. It's time to push these guys to become something, instead of boring routine defences like Cariaso and co.
