    Edgar who's lost 2 in a row, Sonnen and Diaz. I realize I'm stating the obvious but here's the the thing. I don't care! I want entertaining fights and these upcoming matches should deliver. Why so much anger around these parts regarding these fights? #lightenup.

    I think Edgars' matchup is justified because he's dropping weight and he was previous LW champ and gave Henderson a helluva fight.. Nick Diaz I think he should have fought one more time before he got his title shot. And I don't understand Chael getting the shot over Gustaffson, Machida or Dan Henderson...

    I still think Lamas deserves the shot over Edgar and Koch.

    You do realize you're promoting the "anger" by enabling those "angry people" with your post?

    Do you just want attention?

    #thisisnttwitter and I don't really see Sonnen or Diaz winning their fights so I guess it ultimately won't matter.

    Agree with 99silva. Bendo was lucky to get the wins over Edgar and he dominated Penn, wow that's happened a lot recently but I digress, Diaz lost to Condit of which I have no doubt, (not a Diaz hater but I didn't consider it controversial at all) an Sonnen always brings it but really?

    Dan turned down the fight cause he is injured,Machida turned it down cause he wanted more time,Gus well he is only known by hardcore supporters,and chael well he is very well known a ppv draw and he said yes to the fight on like 3 days notice.

    Jones/Sonnen and GSP/Diaz will not be competitive.

    Only in the UFC does this trend happen. Cain should also be added to this list of non-deserving title matches

    That's actually pretty funny.
    I don't like it, though. None of those guys deserve a title shot, except maybe, just maybe, Edgar. But there are plenty of other fighters Aldo could take on instead, so it's kinda unwarranted.

    It's like they make all the good contenders keep fighting until they eventually lose just so they can jump them for people they think make an interesting matchup. Total BS.

    To the Cain basher I do believe he deserves it. One loss to the champ followed by dominating a man who beat Fedor. What's a guy got to do to please some people? No really, to all the Cain haters what would impress you?

    Actually its 4.

    Sonnen, Diaz, Edgar & Rousey.

    Were coming off a huge loss of Hendo/Machida not being a 5 rounder

    Lol, not really. But you're on here a decent amount of time: How many times do we need to see the same thread on these boards?
