    Kelvin hasn't done enough to be gifted a title like that. If they go interim belt it needs to be against someone tougher.

    True, but he's also on a longer win streak than anyone ranked above him. Momentum is key to getting a TS these days.

    I know that but those rankings are dumb and have many inconsistencies. Both Rockhold and Weidman don't deserve their spots based on recent losses and inactivity. Rockhold isnt even apart of the division according to him.

    Souza is top level for sure...i believe rockhold should he at 205...possibly romero too..but hes alittle short for the division but rockhold seems like a good fit at 205..could see him matching nicely with jones actually

    Sit down, and take a few minutes to think about things before going ham on the keyboard.

    Wasn't yoels fault either, it was the commission fault because the head of the commission couldn't be bothered waiting 2 extra hours which is part of their rules despite him just needing to cut like .2lbs. Shouldn't have the 2 hour rule if the commissions can't be bothered waiting lol.

    hahahah, not at all. Adesanya should fight real competition, feed him to Romero or Jacare

    I just imagine the UFC booking Adesanya/Whittaker for another Aussie event later in the year and whittaker pulling out last minute again. maybe bring over a alternate to the down under next time given the last two events?

    If UFC allows Romero to fight Cejudo for 3-round bouts repetitively repetitively, he can have a much loooooooooooonger win streak, but it does not mean anything. I mean, look at who Adesanya's opponents were!

    They have losses but also have wins, while other lower-rank fighters cannot even beat them.

    Bro if Romero can make 125 good luck to him. His last three opponents were ranked, two in the top ten. Look, if you think someone other than Adesanya or Kelvin has a case for it then I can't tell you you're wrong. My point is, someone needs to fight for the belt and sharpish imo.

    I recall many Sherdoggers bitching about the Bisping-Hendo fight from the moment it was booked. I was one of them.

    I did too but I’m sure polls will show otherwise. Memory is real.

    How does Isreal earn a titleshot for a sparring session against a 43 year old ranked #15?

    if anything his stock dropped, he needs to fight someone in the top10 and perform more then run his mouth.

    Because Dana fucking said so...

    A Canadian in my own city with a 12 yr old account just actually asked this???

    Thanks for giving Edmonton a bad name.

    Well, a win streak includes catchweight, I guess. The point is that Adesanya needs to win at least one top-5 before a title bout, or it would be unfair to other fighters.
