They should match him against Hendo, winner takes on the Machida / Bones winner.

A win over Mousasi would be more than enough for a title shot in that division.

What does that have to do with Gus being deserving of a title shot?

You stated he should fight Henderson. Gus is matched up already and if he wins that should be enough for a shot. Regardless of anyone who has also earned one.

Machida is a boring fighter who won't engage... I hope Bones chokes that phony out again.

Hendo v Gustafsson is a good match

Hendo against anyone that is prepared to engage is a good fight

LOL Do you really think that Zuffa is going to put Machida back in the cage with Jones after that performance?

The past few months have shown that guaranteed title shots don't mean shit in the UFC. Jones' next opponent will be the winner of Gustafsson/Mousasi or Cormier.

I think so, they are going to sell the fact that Machida won the first round.

After that boring performance the other night? I doubt it. I hope they give Gus another fight before he gets his shot. Gus and Weidman will hold belts in the UFC before the end of the year.
