Im certain this will be a controversial proposal. In a sense I'm saying, should UFC throw the guy a bone? He has been in the UFC so long and has always come close, but never quite earned the title shot. Several times he has been on 3 and even 4 fight winning streaks that would have earned him a title shot in another division, but there was always someone slightly more deserving in his own. Meanwhile guys like Nick Diaz were being gifted title shots coming off a loss. Now he just beat the guy that some consider the greatest P4P of all time and some say only lost that moniker recently due to fluke losses (I disagree). Finally, he is in the latter half of his career. It's his last hurrah, and he really did just make the most of it. Give the guy a title shot. If not, then UFC needs to stop gifting other people title shots.
