    Cruz, Dillashaw, Garbrandt...

    Plan A and B:
    - If Dillashaw wins he will fight Cruz
    - When Garbrandt wins he will rematch Dillashaw

    Why aren't Moraes or Assunção considered?

    All divisions besides FW-MW are an absolute mess right now.

    Moraes lost vs assuncao...

    Assuncao should get the loser, and Cruz should get the winner.

    Because they are so far above the rest of the division it's not even funny.

    They got names and the fights are usually entertaining.

    None of them should be getting immediate title shots off of losses.
    At least TJ did it right by fighting several times to work his way back up.

    Assuncao already lost the TJ rematch and is boring so he won't get a rubber match.

    Moraes lost to Assuncao but if he beats a few scrubs impressively he might get a shot.

    Who else is there that anyone cares about?

    Yes, because they are trying to build a rivalry Cruz - TJ - Cody

    Hope the winner gets Cruz
    - If Cody loses, hope we will see Cody - Lineker
    - If TJ loses, hope we will get TJ - Moraes / Assunção

    Because most fans don't respect the sport and are a bunch of casual idiots

    IMO Ray Borg should move up to 135 to test himself against the best there. He would be an instant contender
