if there is a fight such as rashad vs chuck or alves vs kos where the winner gets a title shot and it ends up going to a draw?

probably wont ever happen, If its that close most of the time the Judges favor the champ over the challenger. Only scenario i see being realistic would be the fight gone to no contest, which than would probably lead to an immediate rematch.

As a said, the possibilities of a draw in a title fight are extremely small, but if it did ever happen, an immediate rematch would most likely be in place.

1) Draws are so rare, the chances of it happening are really low.

2) If it did occur, I bet the unofficial winner would be determined by subjective criteria, such as who looked better in the fight.

no not a title fight but a fight to decide the number #1 contender

I think he was talking about the fight for No. 1 contender going to a draw, not the title fight itself.

A title fight going to a draw is even more rare given, fewer percentage of title fights even go to decision

My bad lol, still like Rush said the possibilities are very low. Only way i see it happening is if the winner of a round gets a point deducted so its a 9-9 round, otherwise almost never do the judges score a round 9-9, unless like i said before a point i deducted.

well i think this is a very good question. let's say that Rashad vs Tito was for a title spot...what do you guys think the UFC would do? it's really not Dana's decision so much as Joe Silva's, but it is really interesting to think about.

if i was Joe Silva and Tito vs Rashad was supposed to produce a title contender, then i would honestly pick the guy right below them if he was available. for all intents and purposes, let's say Machida was right below them, then i would say he gets the shot. of course there would be controversy, but any decision you make in that situation would spark controversy.

my guess is the guy deemed more marketable gets it, not fair but business is business.
