So after Bendo beats Melendez on UFC on FOX 7, there's not really any real, clear LW no. 1 contender.
Diaz - got dominated, will never get a title shot when Bendo is champ again
Miller - dominated by Bendo, loses to top 5 guys anyway
Melendez - gonna get dominated by Bendo
Cerrone - Loses to top 5 guys anyway, lost to Bendo twice already
Pettis - lost his chance by going down to FW (when he loses to Aldo he might need another win for a LW title shot)
dos Anjos - needs 2-3 more wins I reckon
Varner - loses to to many top guys
Lauzon - loses to top guys, inconsistent
And then the other 2 guys are Gray Maynard and TJ Grant. Maynard has been the No. 2 guy in the division for years now and since Edgar is gone, I think he can actually be champion, he poses some interesting threats to Bendo and I would be really interested in that fight.
Whereas Grant has been on a tear lately, destroying everyone and a win over a guy like Maynard basically warrants a title shot in my opinion, not sure how it would go main eventing a card but could definitely be co-main event.
So I think the winner should get the shot,
