And Diaz is (for the second time) scheduled to fight GSP. And he's coming off a loss too. How much of an ass-kisser is Nick Diaz?

But fans wanted to see this fight. They've been screaming for GSP to fight Diaz for a couple of years now. The level of fan interest is a LOT higher for Diaz than it is for Hendricks. That makes Diaz the most qualified WW applicant.

Sonnen is the ass kisser in that example. Diaz could easily be considered a voluntary defense. GSP just fought his mandatory in Condit, now he can choose. Still can have the fan fights, but make sure there is at least 1 mandatory a year. Silva cant keep fighting the likes of Bonnar and Sonnen without facing who should be the real top challenger. And the top contender doesnt even necessarily have to be the best fighter. I dont consider David Haye the top contender, but I consider him the best fighter not named Wlad
