    For all the ppl crying about him not getting a title shot. Yeah hes on a very good streak but its not like hes been beating ranked guys left and right. Edson and Thomson are the only top 10 guys hes beaten and Josh is no longer in the UFC or a top 20 guy these days.

    Rio, Kikuno and Trujillo are all unranked and mediocre or terrible fighters (Kikuno is washed, not the same guy from DREAM). Castillo is solid but many thought Ferg lost that fight. Tibau is always a tough fight for almost anyone, that was impressive even tho Tibau wasnt ranked.

    I see ppl are comparing Fergs streak to guys like Hendricks and Holloway.....omm what

    Hendricks beat 3 top 5 guys in Fitch, Kampmann and Carlos along with a top 10 guy in Kos. Holloway has beat 4 top 10 guys in a row including two top 5s in Cub and Lamas.

    Assuncao had a 7 fight streak, undefeated at BW and 2 top wins against TJ and Caraway. Plus two very good wins against Eduardo and Munhoz. Yoel is undefeated @ MW, b2b top 5 wins, 1 top 10 win in Kennedy and 2 top 15 wins in Brunson and Tavares. Jacare had a great streak with a top 5 win in Okami and fringe top 5 in Gegard, along with guys like Brunson and Carmont who was top 10 at the time.

    Tony simply doesnt have the quality of opposition going for him for most of his streak.

    Truth is there are more than one guy deserving of a title shot @ LW right now and Tony is one of them but he doesnt stand out. Sucks for him LW is that stacked.

    How many top 10s has Khabib fought?

    Anyway doesnt matter after he schools RDA all doubts will be put to rest and he can't be denied. He's not complaining about this either.

    Khabib would have fought Ferguson if Ferguson didn't fake an injury and duck him. I guess the pressure got to him.

    Alvarez got the title shot on a 2 fight split decision streak over top 10 guys.

    Ferguson has a big winning streak and sewed unholy violence upon Barboza and Thomson.

    The guy Fergy is fighting next.

    Pat Healy was also on a good streak, choked Jim Miller and fringe top 10, a better win than any Ferg has outside Edson and Thomson.

    Rumor has it he had 13k in unpaid parking tickets and didn't have enough money because he quit his job to post on sherdog.

    He was easily top 10. He was on a 5 fight streak and just smacked Cerrone.

    Tony has two top ten wins, both happening in 2015 over Thomson and Barboza.

    Khabib has one top ten win, happening in 2014 against RDA.

    Don't know why anyone wants to see Khabib fight for the title

    It's not like he's earned his shot "but but he beat RDA" yeah 2 fucking years ago & before he was RDA

    Not to mention he's always injured
