If Shield beats Lombard on Saturday, he would have beat all those guys including Robbie. He should be getting a shot if he finishes Hector. In all seriousness, I'm a die hard Diaz fan, but I have no problem with Carlos getting a shot.

No but that doesn't count because he lost to GSP and Hendricks!!!!! The two best WWs in the world!!! It's funny how fans will count the Diaz fight a win for Nick, but won't count the Hendricks fight a win for Condit. And that fight was MUCH closer. Diaz fight wasn't even close. And even though Diaz looked like shit against GSP and gave us NO reason to think he has any shot at the WW belt, his fans are crying for him to get a title shot. He hasn't won a fight since 2011.Pathetic.

Yup. Gotta bring up the Diaz fight, it'll always be brought up. Besides, didn't Jake Shields beat both of these guys???

To be completely fair and really see who the #1 contender fight is the winner of both Condit vs Woodley and Sheilds Vs Lombard shoudl fight for number 1. While the win/losses are bit muddled whoever wins from that grouping would be definite #1. Sadly it would eliminate any contenders depending on who wins.
