There isn't much legitimacy in title shots now-a-days, but if Hendricks doesn't get one if he wins his next fight...any legitimacy that's left will be completely lost.
There is NOONE else who has:
Beaten a top 15.
Beaten a top 10.
And didn't get a title shot.
Add on another beaten top 10 in that win streak, and I'd say it's the most successful run, with the exception of GSP's run, in WW history.
Not giving this guy a title shot if he wins would be a damn crime.
And Dana uses the word "likely".
