    About wanting a TS and his claims that he's a big threat to GSP's title because of his left hand, is he putting himself in a must win situation here?

    Like, let's just say that he fights GSP and gets completely outclassed (like Fitch and Koscheck 2 for example) Can you see Dana holding a grudge and relegating him to gatekeeper status?

    No. He's an exciting fighter who knocks people out. Dana "held a grudge" against Fitch because he's boring and Kos has already lost to the champ twice.

    I wouldn't see Dana holding a grudge, but most people who lose a title shot get do get put into a gatekeeper position. It's nothing personal, that's just the way it works out a lot of times. They had their chance and came up short, very few will be given another shot at the title, so that's where they end up.

    Pretty much.

    Fitch's 3 most exciting fights imo are Hendricks,Silva,GSP...2 of them losses.

    He didnt put himself in a must win situation, the UFC did.

    He's more than earned a title shot and now he has to face someone else to secure it. He must win.

    I don't dislike Hendricks for talking right now, the guy's on a tear and needs to be doing what he can to get the attention he deserves. I find it unlikely that Dana will take anything personally should he lose a title fight.

    Sonnen talked a lot of shit and lost twice.

    Dana then gave him another shot because he talked a lot of shit.

    So no, Dana will probably not hate him for selling the fight.

    Here's what we know TS:

    He beat three top ten fighters in a row.

    you know who the last guy was in the WW division to do that? Thiago Alves.

    No , he said he deserved the title shot and Diaz didn't and also said he wouldn't fight unless it was for the title . But when it came down to it he accepted another fight and he fell in line like a good little soldier under the reign of the tyrant Dana white
