Doesn't matter how many wins he gets, fights with Cariaso, Dodson (rematch) and McCall/Pickett winner (rematch) just aren't going to bring the numbers in especially when the champion just isn't 'over' with a lot of fans.

He won't; he's a (mostly) humble guy who doesn't open his mouth to start false feuds to make useless stories that people seem to need for a fight because ???. His lack of creating hype and the stigma around 125 will keep him from becoming a mainstream draw and this Cariaso fight will only make things worse for him. Cariaso isn't a complete can but he's a top ten gatekeeper and doesn't deserve the shot.

I think a lot of it has more to do with his competition. There's no GSP , shogun type fighters to make his name off of.

I imagine he already is a draw for flyweight fans. For the rest of us tho...we don't like to see midgets fight.
