Chris Weidman hasn't fought for some time, I don't think coming off elbow surgery and into a Title Fight makes a lot of sense. Champ v Champ is a much better sell and more meaningful fight. It's a bigger event. Hector Lombard dropped the ball, and didn't earn it in beating Palhares (even though he finished him).
After 10 Title Defenses I believe it's time they had him fight someone other than the next Contender.... Rockhold just makes too much sense.
The unofficial HW champ isn't get his shot right away (Cormier). Even the last official champ (Overeem) still needs another win. Both more deserving than Rockhold (and I'm a stupid huge Rockhold fan). Throw in the fact Saffiedine isn't getting a shot either - it doesn't make sense.
Also, Melendez. Overeem and Cormier are all top-5 in their respective weight-divisions.
It's Weidman or Evans, IMO.
