Why would he vacate the belt to fighters who are not even fighting the same caliber fighters.

Also how can one duck when you are currently the LHW fighting the toughest grouping. I am aware as we all are that Jones already stated Gus has a rematch with him without issue but we would like to see some contention and LHW fighters put in some work.

They should put in work as they have not been putting in the same amount of work as Jones. Jones mentions that top division fighters should actually face each other and now here we are. What is funny is as of today jones is still fighting superior fighters to the entire division and now some are okay with these same fighters having to do very little to get into contention.

Before his fight with Gus, you need to go back to early 2012 since he had fought a top contender in Evans. If you don't think Gus is solidly the #1 contender the it's clear he didn't deserve his first shot. So your argument that he has been fighting the toughest competition, there doesn't hold any weight. Unless you think Belfort and Sonnen are top contenders. If this is the case I'm surprised you aren't calling for him to fight Matt Hamill next. Seeing he does have a win over the current LHW champ.
