I think the winner of Hendo/Bisping should absolutely get the shot, especially with the extra PPV buys the last season of TUF would bring.
Sorry to Maia/Marquardt but you wouldn't sell as well and that's what it's all about.
And if Shaq comes to the UFC, he should get an immediate title shot for the HW belt because he'll have crazy PPV sales, and that's what its all about, right?
If Maia beats Marquardt, he will be on a 6 fight win streak with all wins coming by stoppage. That is incredibly impressive. Assuming Hendo wins, since the Silva fight, he will have only beaten Palhares and Bisping at MW. Factor in Franklin at LHW, Maia is still the logical choice. Dana White has said personally that Bisping will get a title shot if he wins, but I still disagree. A decision over Leben and most likely a decison over Hendo is not more impressive than 6 straight submission wins. As a fan of the sport and not an UFC employee, I hope the best fighter gets the shot, and that would, without a doubt, be Maia if he wins his next fight.
