So some people think Hendricks deserves the next title shot, I understand that. But he isn't getting it and many people believe he needs to do more to secure a title shot. My question is, why are Hendricks fans saying he deserves it and shouldn't be facing Ellenberger? Why are they so afraid he will lose that fight and ruin his title chances? No offense but if you want to be the #1 contender you need to be able to beat anyone but the champ. If he doesn't beat Ellenberger he doesn't deserve to fight GSP. Either way his fans see him fight pretty soon and if he wins impressively he will likely get a title shot. Title shots aren't earned, they are given, based upon numerous factors. If we gave everyone who scored a KO in their last fight a title shot then there wouldn't be enough champions to fight.
