First and foremost is the result of the title clash between No. 1-ranked Cruz and No. 7-ranked Garbrandt. If the challenger Garbrandt were to take the belt, he’s already promised an immediate rematch to Cruz. If “The Dominator” were to retain, he has already revealed a lack of interest in fighting Dillashaw a second time after winning the belt from him via a debatable split decision at UFC Fight Night 81 in January. Moreover, any fight involving Lineker is deemed worthy of pause due to the Brazilian’s extensive history of missing weight. He’s already come in over on five separate occasions during his UFC tenure and is unlikely to be trusted for a title fight until he can consistently display professionalism when it comes to weight cutting. Although Dillashaw vs. Lineker seems to have all the ingredients for a No. 1 contender fight, Shelby also noted there are other names in the division who come into play when discussing which person will fight for the belt next. “(Jimmie) Rivera has been outstanding; you got (Bryan) Caraway who is still up there in the top-six – you got Dodson,” Shelby said. “There’s so many guys, and there’s guys coming up breaking into the top 10. I’m so happy with the division right now.” Thoughts?
