Henderson is already given the title shot in Japan but as of no, Lightweight division does not have a clear path for the next title shot ( fighting the winner of Henderson-Edgar).

So, how do you want the title shot to be given.

For me, I will go with the Cerrone-Diaz winner vs. Maynard because I really believe that he needs to end his rivalry with Edgar.

I think if Melendez wins, it should be him.

I don't want to see Melendez fight for the title until he earns AT LEAST one win inside the UFC.

It will most likely be Melendez if he gets by Masvidal

I actually voted for the wrong one but the winner of Cerrone/Diaz vs Maynard would be the next likely step although I don't see Maynard/Edgar 4 happening so soon but who knows.


I think we will see Miller/Guida or Guida/Guillard sometime down the road because they are all coming off of losses before we see Miller or Guillard getting a shot with a win.

Fight A) Edgar vs Bendo
Fight B) Masividal vs Melendez
Fight C) Cerrone vs Diaz
Fight D) Guillard vs Miller
Fighters whom are close, Maynard, Sherk, Guida, Tibau

Fight A winner fights fight B winner
Fight C winner fights Fight D winner
Final 2 fight each other
I won't be suprised to see Maynard, Sherk, Guida or 1 of them get a fight against a lower lever contender just to see another smaller contender get knocked off, 2 of them might be paired up and one person might wait in the wings for injuries.

Fight E winner will probably face Maynard, Sherk, Guida or Tibau, the other 3, 2 of them might be paired up and one person might wait in the wings for injuries.

I honestly have no idea who will get it next, but I am on Cerronne's bandwagon and hopes he gets the next shot. He has absolutely earned it, and I would surely not be opposed to seeing a possible rematch between him and Smooth if he can beat Edgar.

It is crazy to see most of these WEC guys come over and handle themselves very well. I was a big fan of WEC and guys like Cerronne, Henderson, Faber, Aldo. But I would be lying if I said that I thought they would have as much success as they have had so far.

WAR CERRONNE!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to see Melendez vs Cerrone/Diaz winner fight for it personally.

I sort of wish the UFC would "Bellator it up" tournament style with some of the other guys to get the next contender.
