    That's true, but he fights every two-three months. He quite recently lost to RDA. Prior to that, his streak was snapped by Pettis and prior to that... Diaz.

    Don't create illusions. There's no mystery why he hasn't been in there yet. He loses his top 5 matchups every time.

    He lost to Nate Diaz, Diaz got a title shot. He lost to Pettis, Pettis got a title shot. He lost to dos Anjos, dos Anjos is getting a title shot. Basically, whenever he's had a fight so far that would put him in line for a title shot, he's lost it. This upcoming fight with Jury, whoever wins it will probably get a title shot soon. We'll see what happens...

    I doubt it. Cowboy's got a good chin, never been kayoed by a head shot, just a body shot. Jury has decent power, but he only kayoed glass jawed Ramsey and a far past his prime Gomi in the UFC. I think Jury has a good chance of winning, but most likely by decision. If the fight ends with a finish, it's most likely Cowboy by submission or strikes.

    Cerrone is the new Kenny Florian... can beat almost anybody at 155 but chokes when it counts.

    If he were in another division, he'd of gotten the shot a few fights ago.

    The LW division is very populated, and he's not the first to go on a big streak without a title shot. In fact, people in the division go on 5-7 streaks all the time without even a # 1 contenders fight.

    It's just that stacked.

    Probably because the people he'd need to beat to get there have already starched him and the champ finished him in extraordinarily painful fashion.

    Because he's not a new upstart who has yet to be given his chance at the big boys. He's already had fights against guys where if he won, he'd have a title shot. The problem is, he loses easily every single time. It's no wonder the UFC is weary about giving him a title shot.

    Like most people said it's probably because of how bad Pettis beat him.
