It appears that Junior Dos Santos will need just one victory to get back into a title fight, and he'll get that chance on May 25th.

Fucking rematches. As if BigFoot's first beating wasn't bad enough now we get to see Cain trash the same 2 dudes once more. This is one of those weird situations where I hope someone jumps classes and cuts in line.

I expected this to be honest

I'm all for Velasquez vs JDS III

I can see these two fighting a lot of times before its all said and done

so if hunt wins, hunt may have to face roy next but JDS beats hunt he gets a title shot one match removed from being completely dominated by Cain????

the bigfoot rematch is BS enough seeing as he got monkey rapped by Cain but hey it is the UFC you dont have to earn title shots any more

I expect Cain vs JDS will happen about 5 times due to the thin division they're in and lack of contenders.

Cain was only one match removed from getting one punched by JDS. It's only fair.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Maybe Dana forgot about Big Nog and Wedrum cause there busy with the whole TUF promo stuff so he forgot they even exist....

I'm pretty sure if Wedrum finishes Big Nog he'll get a shot... Everybody else who did got a title shot straight after

I think it is pretty clear the words if you win you get a title shot are to be taken very lightly from Mr White. I no longer worry about it until the fight is signed and promotions begin. There is nothing anyone can do about it and as long as two elite fighters are fighting I don't care if they jump classes or not. I just want to see the best fighters fight one another.
