No title shot for Henderson/Guida winner...yet

by Mike Chiapetta | source:

UFC president Dana White told MMA Fighting that on the heels of Edgar's stirring comeback knockout win over Gray Maynard, he's yet to determine the champion's next challenge.

Asked whether it was a sure thing that the Clay Guida vs. Ben Henderson winner would earn a chance to fight for the belt, White initially said no.

But that's not necessarily his final answer. Moments later, he clarified his thoughts, saying that his unrelenting schedule hasn't afforded him the opportunity to sit down, examine the situation and make a decision.

"I don't know. I have no idea," he said. "We're going to have to see what happens. I haven't even thought about it. You have to understand, the only thing I'm thinking about now is FOX. I've just got to get past this event. Everything else is taking a back seat. All the other s--- will work itself out.

Yes but Ben holds 2 recent wins over him, and Miller is more highly ranked than Siver. If Ben beats Guida, thats 2 VERY highly ranked opponents, along with a top 20 in Bocek. And before that, reign as WEC champ before a loss in a very competitive fight with Pettis. His streak might not be as long, and I do want Cowboy to get a shot soon, but Ben deserves it more right now

Why not the winner of Benson-Guida?  Makes the most sense. It's not rocket science.

^^^ bullshit.sorry but Donald Cerrone deserves one more bendo and melendez.after he beats siver he should fight the winner of bendo/ guida for the shot.Its really pissing me off lately how overlooked Cerrone is right now, he is on one of the longest winning streaks at lw, with more finishes than the other "contenders".

Pretty much, the only 3 guys who deserve a shot are guida bendo and Melendez

I'm pretty sure he just won't commit to giving guida a title shot. If Ben wins he will get it for sure. Melendez would be next in line if he wins his fight.

 1- melendez 2- ben if he wins guida = no, after seeing him vs diego and i think kflo, he has nothing for edgar.   He is very boring if he has a challenge. he will lie on you and shake his hair around if you were beating him. but if he can steamroll an opponent, it is all over and good.
