    while i generally agree with everything you said, i was coming at it from a slightly different place:

    i also think Romero v Kennedy was overblown.
    i also think Tito v Evans (fence grab) was overblown.
    i also think Aldo v Mendes (fence grab) was overblown.
    i also think Shields-Diaz-Melendes v Mayhem was overblown.
    most certainly i think Fedor v Lindland was overblown (rope grab, or Fedor placed his hand on top of the ropes momentarily - depending on whether you like Fedor or not).
    i also think Serra potentially touching GSP's back of the head during the strike was overblown.
    i also think Hughes reaction to GSP v Serra was overblown.
    i also think A Silva's thigh slightly touching Sonnen's chin (2nd fight) was overblown.

    generally i think fans need to get the fuck over themselves.

    cheers.

    Kelvin vs Brunson doesn't sound right,if Rockhold does stay at mw his next fight should be vs Brunson,both coming off finish losses.

    In our defense he looked like a stud.

    I think Jacare may be a slight step ahead of Chris at this stage of their respected careers. UD or possible sub.

    He needs to fight someone lower ranked then a number 1 contenders fight if he wins that.

    2 wins away from titleshot IMO.

    And he was a stud. I don't know about now, but the Chris that fought against Anderson and Machida, and earlier, was actually really good. The way he cut off the cage and got his takedowns from a traditional wrestling stance, by entering with backhand straights and hooks, was very unconventional and P4P level at the time.

    This sounds like the Luke Rockhold story. Outside of Weidman, Luke hasn't beaten a under the age of 35, at the time he fought them, since Strikeforce Challengers.
    But for whatever reason The Chris is the only one that gets called out for it.

    He was a damn monster against everybody he fought until the IV ban. I think that really hurt him. And that's not taking into account any potential steroid abuse he may or may not be guilty of.

    Me too. I think Chris goes derp mode and tries to wrestle Jacare, ends up on the bottom and then subbed. Cool fight, would like to see it.

    Did he ever.

    I gave him the Rockhold loss, okay don't throw that kick again... Romero loss was pretty bad, but Romero's a freak, he still could have bounced back. They probably should have given him a lesser opponent than Mousasi to get back on the horse though, UFC kind of threw him under the bus (even though they were probably hoping it was Moose who went under the bus in that one)

    I don’t disagree with you at all. Especially about Mous. I just can’t really think of anyone else to fill that top contender spot after Romero/Whittaker and for the love of god, almost no matter how it ends, I don’t want to see an immediate rematch.

    Romero missed weight. Not like he should have many options imo.

    He's gonna fight Jacare like the majority of people have bitched about, he's gonna win and the same people are gonna bitch about Jacare being old and past his prime.

    he filled in on late notice and missed by only 2lbs and doesn't have a history of missing weight. He gets a well deserve pass on that one. not even the saltiest of salty fighters in rockhold complained. That should say everything anyone needs to know
    Romero gets the title shot for obvious reasons
    Weidman maybe gets a top 5 opponent

    Woah, woah, woah, let's not say things we can't take back!

    His leg was jacked against Rocksalt, he only fought to save the card.

    He played stupid games again Moose and got a stupid prize. But he's not washed up by any means.

    The division has changed, you don't get a title shot after beating Mike Munoz anymore!
