HOUSTON – It's far from a lock, but Ricardo Lamas could finally get his shot at the UFC featherweight title in February.

I reallyyyy want to see Aldo headline A fox card. It really isn't right (or fair) that he isn't a good ppv draw, he's as dominant as basically any champion. He just needs a breakout moment, I honestly figured this match up with Lamas would be perfect for Fox but unfortunately Aldo has been getting to banged up lately. This needs a SOLID co main event to be a PPV success, last year Aldo vs Edgar during super bowl weekend (a much bigger draw then Lamas) didn't do well at all. I can't think of a ample co main event that would REALLY draw, Sonnen vs Wandy would do well but I don't know if well enough.

Yep, it's kinda ridiculous sometimes when now we celebrate potential championship fights happening for guys who actually earned their shot in the cage.
