lol. complete bullshit. How long until Dana cuts Mr. McMahon style promos between fights? I'm surprised they didn't put this on TV. The champ shouldn't have to fight a roided up woman if she doesn't want to.

How many times does the UFC put on a title fight where the challenger isn't even the #1 contender? de Randamie vs Megan Anderson would be just as good a match.

Cyborg isn't worth this headache, and the whole featherweight division is a joke.

Guessing this is going to lead to another fight against Holm, with the winner being sent to slaughter against Cyborg.

Also, UFC matchmaking with zero relation to rankings isn't anything new. In the post-McGregor world of the UFC they'll make whatever matches they think will generate bigger buyrates, regardless of whoever they rank as #1 or #2 on their own damn website.

including just stripping champions of their belts... mighty mouse is lucky there aren't a couple of big names in his division, i guess.

they can't have it both ways, like "cyborg is the top contender, you have to fight her", when a guy likes chael sonnen gets title fights...

in fairness, the middleweight division was a gong show the first time Sonnen fought Silva, and the second fight was justified by his performance in the first.

It is, however, highly bullshit that he got a shot against Jones in his first LHW fight.

Remember though, this is a contender getting a break, not the champ. I'd say the UFC has been pretty consistent with not allowing champions to duck a #1 contender.
