    Not even close.

    First, Till did not even beat Thompson even after missing weight badly

    Till beat an old Cerrone at 170 and for some people thought he was going to beat Woodley?

    Till has only one weapon, he just throws his left hand. His striking is actually terrible.

    Usman and Colby would both have destroyed Till as well. These hype trains need to stop

    UFC doesn't care who fans consider deserving title shot and who they don't

    He was a very popular up and comer, that qualifies him for a title shot in today's UFC.

    Well, he was an undefeated middleweight.

    Woodley had never fought one of those guys before.

    Nope. I agree with you 100%. BUT we live in a time now where popularity gets you a top spot not just skill. Sometimes personality will allow you to skip the line completely. How do we know who the best truly is ? We no longer live in a time where a champion will fight the TRUE next guy in line like GSP had to do whether the fight was exciting or not.

    They expected Till to be the next big star and pushed him too fast. Most MMA enthusiasts knew it as the casuals just believed what they read.

    Beat Cerrone then Wonderboy and was undefeated. He was only behind Covington for a title shot.

    He wasn't the first choice. It was supposed to be Colby.

    Till was awful.
    He threw what? Two punches ?
    The size difference was almost laughable and he still did nothing

    He got dropped the same amount of times he threw punches and tapped out like McGregor.

    But Habib beating Al Iafrate qualifies for a belt.

    Now that’s legit.

    Why are you stating the obvious? Dana wanted Till to be the champ

    Since when are most title shots even earned these days? What's so different about Till?
