    NOT COUNTING SHORT NOTICE REPLACEMENTS

    who do you guys think had the easiest path to a title shot in modern UFC? (Let's say since FOX)

    I think it has to be t woodley.

    He got a split decision over gasalumni then spent the next 18 months being undefeated against no challengers

    What yall think? Anyone have an easier path than woodley?

    Borko was before fox deal, but arguable

    I think with respect to their divisions, beating no one at ww is easier than beating anyone at 125... I could be wrong though

    Randy Couture against Sylvia. Last fight was a loss at LHW. Received a HW title shot the next year and hadn't fought in the division in ever.

    I like the picture of Din Thomas too :icon_lol:

    wilson reis had a 1-fight win streak and then got a title shot vs mighty mouse. granted, mighty mouse pulled out with an njury, but still, that matchup left everyone scratching their head.

    Thats probably the pre-fox winner, but I'm kind of wondering post fox when they tried to pretend they had rankings and things

    Rose Namajunas has to take the medal.

    None of you have heard of her, but she was involved in the first 115lb womens title fight, which she lost to Carla Esparza.

    She was 2-1 at the time, coming off a loss. Same record as Brock when he got his shot except Brock wasn't coming off a loss at the time.

    No, no he wasn't. Jones didn't accept the fight where Sonnen was the replacement for Henderson. Then they ended up doing a whole season of TUF where it was Sonnen vs Jones.
