    It's called the eye test and there is precedent for it. Chris Weidman springs to mind. KZ, Cody Garbrandt, and obviously Bisping as well.
    I don't care which fighter has 2 or 3 top middling top ten wins. The fighter to beat right now is Till.

    Why till doesn't deserve the the next title shot: it's called logic and there is precedent for it.

    Still at least one big win away depending on if he impressively smashes a top 5 guy, realistically not quite there... I’m rooting for Till BTW, Cerrohhhneey was a great win, but not a title shot worthy win.

    Eye test...lol. I think Till would beat up Tyron Woodley, but that doesn't mean he's earned his shot yet. I want to see him against 1 lay-n-pray specialist and 1 stand-n-bland specialist first.

    I'm a big Till fan. But RDA deserves the next shot. Till needs atleast one more big win possibly 2 depending how things play out.

    He should fight Colby, then Wonderboy then he would legitimately deserve a title shot if he won both of them.

    I think wonderboy is the worst matchup for him in the division though.

    Wonderboy possibly beats everyone at WW bar woodley.

    I think Till will be champ within 3 fights though.

    RDA has beaten better opposition and was the champion in the weight below. Beating Robbie is a much bigger deal than beating Cowboy.

    Whatever this 'eye test' nonsense is, it's wrong, maybe it just means the TS needs glasses.

    It's also called discrimination against grapplers which the UFC has a long history of.

    He beat Cerrone more cleanly than Masvidal did. Most folks here were clamoring for Jorge to get the title shot.

    Surely you are not dense enough to think Till will lose his next fight?

    With the UFC of course it comes down to money more than "deserves" yet I think that probably favours RDA. Ok he isn't a massive draw but he is probably at his absolute peak right now coming off of the Lawler fight, Till on the other hand I think has potential to get much more hype behind him with another good win.

    If Lawler stays fighting then a match with Till would probably be a good TV card main event and either fighting for the belt would be acceptable.
