    Didn't Dana say something about Kelvin getting it if he beats Woodley?

    I could see them making Lawler/Gastelum the co-main of Cain/Werdum in case Cain gets injured.

    To be honest, it's probably going to be the winner of the fight that's most talked about after the fight is over. The performance of the winner in said fight will decide who gets a title shot.

    Unless Nick Diaz beats Silva. If Diaz beats Silva then the other contenders might as well plan on fighting another fight because Diaz is getting that title shot.

    Kelvin/Lawler is a good match up imo.

    Winner of Lombard/Rory should get the shot.

    Winners and losers of Hendricks/Brown and Kelvin/Woodley fight each other.

    My super biased thoughts, Condit wins 1 fight and gets super-undeserved title shot. Robbie is awesome, but he is a seemingly beatable champ for Condit.

    Won't happen, I can dream.

    I think that could have just been promotional talk. He didn't say anything other than something along the lines of, he could earn one if he's really impressive, he's up there with those guys, blah blah blah. He is up there, and I like Kelvin, but I think he would need to KTFO in ESPN Top Plays fashion for Dana to give him a TS.

    DW speaking out of his ass again. Rory's domination over Woodley got him nowhere.

    whoever is more dominant performance in Roy/lombard or Hendricks/Brown, gets shot

    I don't see how the answer could be anything but Rory.

    If Diaz wins, him
    failing that then Rory/Lombard
    then Gast/Woodley vs Hendricks/Brown.
    then GSP 2016 return if that happens.

    whew.

    Rory wins. He gets it

    Lombard wins, has to be more impressive than Hendricks/Brown winner, who otherwise gets it

    Between the 2 fights, the winner who doesn't get the TS will fight gastelum/woodley for next shot

    ... As long as gsp does not return yet...

    Realistically, Rory Mac will be most deserving with a win. I don't even like Rory but he's already earned his shot imo. Another win would have to put him in front of the line.

    Since Hendricks was pulled, Rory should be getting it right now instead of fighting Lombard.

    Lombard is better than Woodley & a victory over him, means more. Woodley was already dominated by Rory MacDonald & showed nothing new in the Dong fight.


    The only case I could see for Kelvin, is if he utterly dominates or finishes Wood. Anything else & I would suspect Dana is just trying to get a Mexican title shot. I feel MacDonald, Lawler, Lombard & Hendricks would beat Kelvin pretty bad.
