Why exactly do people believe Jacare is the undisputed #1 contender?

    For real. He is on a one-win streak. With a win over post TRT Vitor.

    His only notable win in the last years was #3 Okami three years ago.


    I think it's fair to say Jacare needs a #1 contender before earning a shot.



    P.S. I Agree that it is BS that Hendo is getting the shot.

    Well he did fight juiced to the gills guy and lost. Not sure you can totally take that away but if you do he's totally #1.

    He won 9 of last 10.
    Mousasi was a very good win
    (Mousasi is on a 3 fight win streak)

    Romero would be #1 contender if he didn't failed a test.

    He's the highest ranked guy not on a losing streak or coming off suspension. So I'd say that qualifies him

    "juice to the gills" sure get's thrown around in here too much. Romero wasn't juiced.

    There's no clear #1 contender at MW if you hold Yoel suspension against him.

    What's funny is if Jacare decides to wait he will not get a title shot because Chris or Luke will get a win and pass him.

    He have 10 win streak... You got someone with better one there?

    Dont even jump here with your shit that Yoel won this fight. That was very bad decision.

    Exactly.
    Romero was supplemented to the gills, not juiced.

    Sure whatever he's looking a lot smaller in recent Instagram posts...don't fighters usually get bigger when not training?

    Came to say this.

    Romero is the only other option, and he just got popped like a highschoolers zit.

    Who do you propose TS?

    I don't see many people saying he's undisputed #1 contender. The general belief is that he's most deserving of the "big 4" of Rockhold, Weidman, Jacare, Romero, and I agree. Rockhold got KO'd. Weidman got finished by Rockhold and is inactive. Jacare basically drew with Romero, and is coming off a dominant win. Romero basically drew with Jacare and is coming off the USADA controversy.

    If not Jacare then who?

    Weidman or Rockhold who still haven't moved past losing their titles?

    It wasn't a 'very bad decision', it was a very close fight. Unless you're biased of course.

    Most important is Bisping says he wont fight yoel for years due to a belief he has about residual benefits lasting years. So he's off the list.

    Next is Rockhold who just got KTFO by Bisping. No point.

    Third is Wiedman who's talking so much smack Bisping is sure to pass him by.

    That leaves Jacare in champs mind who has some say.

    Because he was above Luke and the UFC still gave it to Luke.
    And don't play blind.
    He's on a 1 fight win-streak but 10-1 in his last 11.

    Yoel, the guy who beat him, was caught doping. And TBH I didn't think he lose that fight. It was a draw at the very least!
