    So allegedly Cory was promised that he’s still a win away from a title shot. Who should he fight? I’m thinking it’s Dominick Cruz or Rob Font. Either of those guys would be good match ups for TJ too.

    Sheesh both Cory and I missed out on our win bonus there

    Shame on Corey being the out for you there

    But I bet you were excited when Elkins pulled it out of the hat

    Maybe you got one free to have another taken away

    oh life, always ends upp with its dick in your ass

    jk life is awesome

    A guy who’s 2-2 in his last 4 is a win away from a title shot in a stacked division… okay buddy.

    He needs to get out of the habit of believing the UFC's promises...

    Have him fight the winner of Aldo vs Munhoz

    That's fair. He fought a razor close fight with a all time great BW.

    Sean Shelby have him his word? Damn, that's almost as solid as a promise from Dana White

    He and Sterling should've fought for the belt instead of Yan and Aldo

    If he was 1 win away from a TS before, and rhe only thing that's happened since then is a split decision loss against a top contender...it sounds normal to still be 1 win from a TS.

    It's not just who you beat (or lose to) but how

    Same thing I've been saying when haters scratch their head as to why Islam moved up the rankings so much for 2 back to back dominant wins. It's also how you win not just who you beat.

    Meanwhile Tj going in for knee surgery with a face that still isnt healed and Corey doesnt have a scratch on him. Guessing leaning on a guy is some superior martial arts technique that is highly reguarded by judges.

    doubt it happens.

    Sandhagen has no excuse for it going the distance.
    TJ is 5" shorter
    1 Leg
    1 Eye
    2 years out of the cage
    6 year age differential, at 35 TJ is arguably out of his prime for 135.

    Yeah, seriously, who loses to a diminished version of arguably the greatest BW ever. What a scrub, that Sandhagen guy.

    That is sick! You clearly know your MMA, betting on two fighters coming off losses and the third who's lost most of his fights over the last few years.
