    I personally find giving Lawler vs Brown the next title shot isn't the path to go. Even tho I did recall it was the fight to make at WW: ""http://forums.sherdog.com/forums/f2/robbie-lawler-vs-matt-brown-fight-make-ww-2746447/" I don't want to see Lawler vs Hendricks 2. But I can see why they are doing it, Lawler gave it to Hendricks in the first fight and I had Lawler winning if it wasn't for that takedown. I think they might be pushing Lawler, trying to get him to win the belt and be an entertaining draw for the sport.

    I thought T-wood vs Rory was a great match-up for the next shot. Woodley bringing that explosive wrestling athleticism and Rory bring that GSP-ish technique. I somehow think this fight won't be close. The stylistic match-up makes it seem as its either Rory who will dominate Tyrone and keep him at reach using jabs and kicks, or it's going to be Tyrone who will land that huge punch, get Rory nervous and hesitant, and impose a grueling wrestling fight.

    But now that that is out of question, logically, it seems as the winner of Hector Lombard vs DHK might fight the winner of Tyrone Woodley and Rory MacDonald. I see no one else except those 4 monsters who are worthy of a title shot. We can have insane match ups if this was how is was supposed to go.

    Rory vs Hector
    Woodley vs DHK
    Rory vs DHK
    Woodley vs Hector.

    Thoughts??

    I really thought they'd give Rory the next shot if he beats Woodley but you cant deny thst Lawler and Brown deserve it.

    My predictions
    Lawler beats Brown
    DHK beats Lombard
    Rory beats Wood

    and Rory fights Hendricks for belt, Lawler takes little break and gets winner

    Tyrone Woodley if he wins should get the title shot and then Brown if he wins...If Robbie wins give him the winner of Lombard/DHK and then that winner next shot

    Lawler vs. Brown will hopefully be the Diaz/Condit dog fight that never happened. Two BANGERS going at it, fuck the gameplans to score points. Go in there and FIGHT.

    If Rory grinds out another decision and Lombard KOs dong...expect Rory vs Lombard, with Dana hoping for a Lombard win

    Lawler/Woodley/Lombard are all the same camp...does this play any factor in them fighting

    I have a feeling Lombard doesnt care and will fight any of them

    Also...no way Dana gives a shot to Rory ahead of Lawler...Lawler beat Rory, will be a bigger draw and produce a more exciting fight...plus he has a better claim if he beats Brown.

    This is the first fight that I have gotten excited about in a long time (I have seen some pretty bad ass fights since, but something on paper that looks amazing before I've even seen it)

    How could you not want to see Hendricks/Lawler 2?! Woolley/Macdonald vs Hendricks sounds way less entertaining. I could watch Lawler get a billion title shots and not complain. With all the undeserved title shots that have happened in the past few years I say Lawler is deserving.

    They'll get a title shot when Brown or Lawler inevitably get injured, or Dana changes his mind on the spot.

    the winner of brown and lawler deserves the title shot more so than the winner of woodley and macdonald. I think the winner of lombard and kim will fight either woodley or macdonald for the next shot after hendricks fights lawler or brown.
    makes perfect sense to me

    It would make the most sense but there would be a problem if/when Woodley and Lombard win which IMO is the most likely outcome of those fights.

    Rory is young, he can wait it out if he gets past Twood like DC is for the gus/jones match.

    The problem is if Twood and Lombard win, will they fight each other? I'm not sure what kind of dynamic they have being teammates.

    Brown has won so many in a row just hasn't gotten a top five opponent which isn't his fault. If he beats Robbie then he for sure would deserve a shot considering his streak and Robbie being the #1 in the rankings (which the UFC cares about it seems). I wouldn't mind seeing Woodley face DHK but it wouldn't make any sense...He just beat Carlos Condit and already wants a title shot and winning against DHK wouldn't merit that. I think Rory is the perfect opponent if not Lombard. That is pretty much the only matchup I don't agree with though because I think Rory vs Hector would merit a title shot it Hector were to win and if Woodley beat Lombard that would merit a shot also. I really just don't think Rory should get a shot after one more win, I think he needs two. You shouldn't get a title shot after losing your fight before your last. For me title shots are not just beating top opponents but doing it in succession.

    That would hurt a lot of future contenders

    Rory doesn't deserve it. Tyron definitely doesn't deserve it.

    Rory already got beat up by lawler a couple fights ago.

    Lawler had a razor close fight with the current champ. Alexander gustaffuson gets a shot after only 1 win against even lower competition then lawlers.

    Lawler should get it now without even having to fight again.

    Lawler lost the first 2 rounds imo. But he should have won the fight which he did.
    It was close bro.
