Yes. Cobb had to generate a winning streak before getting his shot. Dokes was about to have his first controversial tiff with Weaver when Holmes shut Randy out. Until the Weaver rematch, Cobb and Ocasio had given Dokes his toughest matches. (Ocasio deserved the decision in their first match, but he wasn't going to get it over a kid who might as well have been Dong King's son at the time.)
