Kenny Florian Believes A Win over Diego Nunes at UFC 131 Earns Him a Shot at Jose Aldo   [View Full Version]

Kenny Florian’s dedication to always fight the best will be shown when he faces top 5 ranked featherweight Diego Nunes at UFC 131, and if he wins, he believes that’s all the evidence he’ll need to face Jose Aldo next.

Does he deserve it no
Will he get one probably yes
If ufc decides to have aldo fight early fall and not wait for mendes/yahya outcome
Mendes will face winner

Maybe if this was SF.

I mean 1 fight at FW and he should get a title shot. It's not like he is coming over from another org in the same weight division, he's coming down to a new division.

I see Aldo beating Florian, and I don't see Aldo and teammate Nunes fighting each other.

Mendes deserves it more, but I voted yes because I believe that Florian has a much better chance of defeating Aldo. Also, that fight would be 10x more entertaining

It might, but I wouldn't be thrilled with the situation.

If he wins he'd be 1-1 in his last two.

I like Florian and I would like to see him fight for the title soon but he has to understand there are a few fighters who have been patiently waiting for their shot.

If Florian beats Nunes and wins his next fight also, I say give it to him then.

I have never ascribed to the notion that a fighter needs a certain number of fights before getting a title shot. Everything depends on context, Florian has been a pretty clear top5 at the lightweight division for a very, very long time, and it seems pretty clear based on that and assuming that he wins this fight that he is a contender at 145, and probably the top contender skill-wise.

I want to see the best possible fight for the title, not the guy who "deserves it" whatever that means.
