The former Strikeforce champ was talking retirement until he heard his old rival Gilbert Melendez would be getting a UFC title shot. Now he wants one of his own.

Welcome to the politics of the fight game. Should be Thomson, or Grant, but it's Melendez because he haggled a deal into his contract for it. Sucks to be the guy away from the negotiation table sometimes.

Thomson isn't in title contention anymore anyways.

Controversial losses are still losses.

He has only himself to blame. If he beat Bendo things would have worked out differently.
A fight with Aldo is pointless

Cry me a river...first he wants to retire after a close decision and now he complains about title shots. If you want to fight then do it!
