    I'd definitely put Brock & Cerrone on the favored list...

    Then add Shields to the against.

    Cathal Pendred and Diego Sanchez on the for list.

    Against most LnP fighters.

    No disrespect to Diego btw. Just saying hes won some decisions he shouldn't have. Same with Cathal.

    brock was thrown to the wolves and cerrone had to fight umpteen times for a title shot, thats why they are on my list. I could see how it could be seen a different way

    Most recently:
    Favored Conor in giving him whatever he wants

    Against Aldo in not even considering him for an immediate rematch

    Aldo and Frankie definitely against

    I mean, I guess. I just think it's more of a favor because he was gifted a title shot after going 1-1 in the UFC(2-1 overall) beating Heath Herring... Cerrone also chose to fight so often.

    I don't know about Brock remember brocktober and his title shot after beating herring ( not bashing him I am a fan ) I'd say the UFC liked him him even after he bashed bud Weiser and gotta have Conor on the list

    i can see it that way too. looks worse for brock though if randy wouldve knocked him out zombie style. Kind of like how people think its inhumane to put cm punk in against a top mw

    It's called business strategy. At the end of the day,
    the UFC is a BUSINESS people. It's not a liberal
    arts college campus. This is how the real world
    works.

    They're against Dillysnake or else he would've gotten the immediate titleshot. Even Barao is more favored imo.
