    Of anybody to ever get a title shot in the UFC? His UFC record is 15-13

    Edit: seems like some people didn't get it, I'm not saying he's getting a title shot I'm saying if he manages to pick up another win and then does get a title shot. Basically the point of this thread was to find out who has had the worst record of anybody to ever get a title shot in the UFC.

    Record does not matter if you are 40-60 if you fight your way through that top 10 you get a shot.
    Plus he has not been given a title shot he is still one fight away from a title shot because the winner of Frankie and Brian gets the title shot and he does not want a lay off that long, that is 9 months

    Look at his record. All of his losses are to top of the food-chain fighters.


    Renato Moicano - undefeated at the time

    Frankie Edgar - Ex LW Champ - Top 5 FW

    Max Holloway - Current FW Champ

    Charles Olivera - Borderline top 10 FW

    Cub Swanson - Top 5 FW

    Donald Cerrone - Top 10 LW

    Anthony Pettis - Top 10 LW - Went on to become LW Champ

    Records, and rankings don’t matter in the UFC, anymore. So, it’s not worth worrying about.

    Records still matter, just not overall records. Recent records are more accurate.

    Unfortunately for Stephens even his recent record isnt great. 5-4 since 2015, 3-2 in his last 5

    None of that matters though. You don't get points for losing to good fighters

    I wouldn't be so quick to give Jeremy a title shot . Cub Swanson, Artem Lobov, Jose Aldo... Let him get through that hall of killers first and then talk about title shots...

    As if I didn't know any of that already, thanks for asking my question btw... What I'm asking is if somebody with that kind of record inside of the UFC has ever worked their way to a title shot.
