RodrigoRua Posted September 6, 2012 Report Share Posted September 6, 2012 Hendos injury, UFC 151 cancelation, Machida declining a title shot (that is another issue and I agree with Machida) and Jones ducking Sonnen made the LHW division became a mess in my opinion. Its almost like LHW is not really lined up for title shots so whoever makes the best impression for the public gets a title shot (just remember Machida vs Bader on FOX). Whoever talks more gets a title shot (Sonnen) whoever is healthy gets a title shot LOL. I will get a link (sorry its in portuguese but you can translate with a software) where Dana is saying that "If ppl want to see Jones vs Sonnen than I will arrange it". Im sure most of you had seen Dana saying that couple days ago. Which pretty much makes me wonder that If Sonnen beats Forrest, Sonnen would then take a shot at Jones next (considering Jones beats Vitor, of course). I would go as far as seen Sonnen vs Forrest canceled (for any bs reason) so Sonnen keeps himself healthy for Jones vs Sonnen on superbowl weekend ... seriously !! Apparently, Machida already lost that "ticket" for a title shot when he declined replacing Hendo ... I even heard the possiblity of Machida vs Evans 2 for a #1 contender matchup in early 2013. Questions then: 1. Who is next for winner Jones/Vitor ? 2. Will Machida vs Hendo happen for #1 contender ? 3. Wouldnt Shogun vs Gus be a #1 contender on the first place ? 4. Do you think Sonnen will be granted title shot after beating Forrest ? 5. If Cornier comes to UFC on 205 after Nov ... will he then be the #1 contender ? Of course you dont have to answer all these questions to me but if you answer it to yourself you will notice LHW is a mess with no criteria, ranking or title shot line ups. Wouldnt be surprised Phil Davis gets a title shot after beating Wagner Prado LOL ... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
