    I think Holly did that as well, but I could be wrong.

    Edited.

    Yeah, I just checked. She lost her belt to Tate, and then lost to Valentina. Then fought GDR for the FW belt.

    The Aldo situation is worse because Yoel is in effect just stepping in for the #1 contender who is injured.

    It was a title eliminator fight with Costa. Costa won, but he's injured, so Israel needs an opponent... so.... what do you want? No fight?

    Yoel never really got destroyed in those losses and it could be argued that he should have won them. Before you flip your social justice warrior hair, this is only from observation of other opinions.

    As others have said Yoel is coming off a controversial loss in which many people thought he beat Costa (myself included), with Costa injured it makes sense to give that shot to Yoel. Oh and also it's YOEL FRICKIN' ROMERO!!!

    Some fighters seem to have a title shot deal in their UFC contact.

    Romero, Edgar, and probably a few others i forget.

    1. Either one of those losses could've gone the other way. We wouldn't be having this conversation if just one of them had.
    2. Izzy asked for the guy. Just like Cejudo, Dana has a full on erection for Adesanya.
    3. The only reason he's going now is because Costa is out until the summer and there's nobody else who's obvious.

    They have no faith in any other legit fighter selling the card.
