not really a big story to comment on one way or another but it's just really a shame that there's so many good fighters out there who get snubbed when these big name contenders float around getting quick title shots in different weight classes.
Every time they go to a Faber, Chael, Nick (if this happens), etc it takes a big chance away from a lesser known but deserving guy.
Now with all the rumors flying about Aldo moving up, Pettis down, Jones up, Cormier down, and so on, they really aren't letting the weight classes develop anymore. There's almost 400 guys on the roster but 350 of them aren't in the inner circle enough to ever really get a title shot.
Ok, I've been trying to wrap my head around your post before replying, but had to eventually give up. Am I to understand that when 1 undeserving fighter get's a title shot (or even moves up/down) the weight class is completely restricted to the point that it may not develop? "LETTING THE WEIGHT CLASSES DEVELOP" has absolutely NOTHING, whatsoever to do with who gets a title shot, deserving or not.
I wish you would elaborate a little more as to your ideal situation, as you only touch (or hate) on that which you see as wrong. All of you love to say how much Silva & GSP are beyond an ungodly level, and throw around "P4P" whenever possible. So Anderson is the best, ok, well there has only been 1 man ever to beat the hell out of him for 1 round, let alone 5. Even in the event of a loss, when a figher manhandles the largely considered best-ever, let him fight for any title he sees fit. Bendo has been unchallenged in his UFC, & lightweight career, by anyone EXCEPT for showtime. Aldo has, for a long time spoke of his move up to Lightweight (which NO ONE ever complained about) but when Pettis moves down to face him, in lieu of the guy he demolished, it's unfair?
And then you question the legitimacy of Urijah Faber???? Out of all Urijah is.....well...I mean he is....yes, completely undeserving of any title-fight for the rest of his life based on each of his last shots at it.
