winner of lil nog/bader vs rashad

jones vs winner of machida/rampage

 

and the winner of each of those sets against each other for interim.

 

Meh.. I'd rather Rashad just wait for his shot.

This way, Jones can fight the winner of Nogueira vs Bader. Then, the winner of that would fight the winner of Machida vs Jackson, and the winner of that would eventually fight the winner of Rua vs Evans.

can't believe Rashad wants to wait a full year...sounds like he is scared to lose his title shot...

 

Carwin had to take an extra fight before he regained his title shot...if Rashad is good enough he would win his next fight...

 

Why on Earth would he WANT to fight Lyoto again BEFORE a shot at the title?

Talk about one of the stupidest things you could do.

 

Carwin took the fight with Mir for two reasons..

1) It was dubbed a 'title' fight.

2) He doesn't make as much money as Rashad and likely needed the pay day.

 

Rashad wants to be a 2-time champion, and he knows that it surely won't happen if he has to fight Lyoto first.

Because if he can't beat Machida, or whoever else, in the interim, and refuses to even take another fight, then he doesn't deserve to be champion anyway.

He shouldn't have to beat anybody else.

He's earned his shot, and has every right to wait for it.

What's with the new fascination with interim titles? There is no need for it, as we all know that Shogun will be returning very soon.

next summer is not very soon at all, why should fans and the rest of the division sit around and wait on Shogun's crappy knees to heal? If he can't defen, then he shoulsd defer or make the interim title, as has happened in every other similar situation in the past. What makes him more special than anyone else?
