Default Re: Shogun vs. Vera: Winner gets title shot?

Davis was outclassed by Rashad.

So who else is left?

It's not like Jones is doing a Frankie Edgar style "spend three years fighting two guys" run. He's fighting very frequently and taking the best possible challenges. He's just cleaned out a very competitive division ridiculously quickly.

True enough, he cleaned LHW out as fast as Anderson or GSP cleaned out their divisions. only difference is MW and WW both have worthy contenders while Jones has beat almost every name except Lil nog and Gust who prob should fight to see who get's next shot after Machida.

But after that should Jones win I would think HW would be his next step unless another challenger emerges.......
