Condit-Woodley winner not guaranteed title shot


This week in interviews Carlos Condit and Tyron Woodley have both said that they were told they would earn a title shot with a win at UFC 171. However, UFC President Dana White told the media that nothing is guaranteed:

“There’s no guarantees, anywhere, ever in life,” White told USA TODAY Sports.

White spoke to a small group of reporters following Thursday’s pre-UFC 171 Ultimate Media Day event at Dallas’ American Airlines Center, the same venue that hosts Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast event.

“They’re going to have to come out and perform, and we’ll see what happens,” White said.

Condit yes, Woodley no. He hasn't done anywhere close to enough to get a title shot. Condit, however, has. So dana can't say the winner of this fight gets the next title shot, because it only applies to one of them.

Lol he just promised Gus the next shot at the Champ whether Bones wins or loses then DC gets the next one after that, then says there's no guarantees lol I like Dana, but he can never stick to his word

And I feel like the no guarantee in his case just applies to Woodley, should he win

I think Dana learned a while ago when you raise the stakes people tend to underperform. Dana doesn't need to call this a top contender match when he has several other top welterweights who could easily be put in for a title fight. But not taking a firm stance that this is a top contender match it sends a message that you have to look good in order to make a claim for your shot.

Maybe this is Dana's way of saying "if you want to get the next title shot, the fight has to end in an exciting KO or SUB, or just let each other bang, bro"Either that or they're trying to set up Lawler/Diaz 2

If Condit wins then I believe he'll get it. If Woodley wins then who knows what they'll do. Maybe Lombard if he beats Shields or maybe Diaz. If Condit wins though, I don't see how they deny him a shot.
