    so if Cub Swanson beats Artem Lobov at UFC Nashville and:

    - Jose Aldo beats Max Holloway at UFC 212
    - Frankie Edgar beats Yair Rodriguez at UFC 211

    Cub gets next crack at the belt, right?

    a win over Artem gets you a title shot for sure ...

    Unless Conor comes back to fight Aldo at 145.

    UFC logic would dictate so.

    More like if Lobov somehow beats Cub then he'll get a title shot.

    Artem should get an interim belt if he beats Cub.

    In that scenario I think cub would need to beat either max or yair, or beat Frankie in rematch.

    Cub has already fought Holloway and Aldo and got smashed in both. Have no interest in seeing it again

    As long as Cub isn't the #1 contender. Those guys don't get title shots.

    By Aldo fan logic the loss to Aldo was a complete fluke. It ended quicker than Aldos loss to Conor and proved nothing. It would never happen again like that. Rematch!

    I mean being Conor's training partner and just 2 fights removed from asking for your own release with a .500 record gets you a main event against a top 5 opponent...

    Is Swanson potentially getting a title shot the part that offends you?
