    Chad Mendes just won tonight via KO 1st round.

    But he doesnt deserve KZ right now just because he knocked out a one trick pony Cody and Yaotzin Meza who I've never even heard of.

    KZ is not fighting till March and Edgar vs Aldo is on February which is perfect timing for KZ's recovery. KZ should get the title shot next.

    On the other hand

    Mendes should just fight the winner of Poirier vs Brookins which is happening tommorow. Mendes vs Poirier most likely imo

    KZ and Mendes have trained together; not sure they would take the fight if there are other options.

    Yeah, a guy who's only lost to Aldo doesn't deserve KZ. Good one.

    But who has he beat in the last couple fights to be deserving a fight against the number one CURRENT contender?

    Translation: "I'm a fanboy of Jung, and want the UFC to shield him from Mendes."

    Also, LOL @ the CONSENUS #2 fighter in his division not "deserving" anyone that isn't the champion.

    Technically Koch should be the next man up and KZ should be fighting HIM for the next #1 contender. Current contender is Edgar.

    No need to answer to TS, he is an extreme Korean zombie nuthugger.

    I like KZ, definitely my favourite fighter, but I would love to see this fight,
    it is not Chad's fault that his opponent pulled out in short notice.

    the only reason he fought McKenzie was because the UFC wanted to get him "back in the mix" and he fought Meza as a last minute replacement, he was originally supposed to fight Hacran Dias, which would have been a much more relevant fight

    man I'd like to see KZ get his Aldo fight. I think he's in the doghouse cause he was crying about fighting in Asia and then when they put the fight in Macau, he got his knee rehabbed instead.

    but Koch shouldnt even have had the shot in the first place. wtf?

    KZ already went through the number one contender fight which was against poirier.

    Why would he need another one?
