White also stated that it doesn’t matter how impressive either Ryan Bader or Lyoto Machida were in the co-main event of the evening, the winner in the main event would be the one challenging either Jones or Henderson for the title next.

Overeem Wants a Title Shot

http://www.cagetoday.com/overeem-wants-a-title-shot/

“I am the most tested athlete in the world right now.” Overeem mentions “And as you can see I am still [like] 25, still heavyweight and still going strong.” He adds that you can ask any sparring partner that he has in the gym and they will surely tell you that he is “Still kicking ass."

Machida desrves it over these two guys.

I could handle a Shogun vs Machida match to determine the real challenger... Assuming they both win.

 In case you didn't notice White is a habitual liar.  Vera ain't fighting for the title no matter if he wins by KO with the first punch he throws.

DW cannot be talking about Vera..... The guy was manhandled by Thiago Silva (Silva would beat him 100 out of 100 times), barely beat Eliot Marshall, and was crushed by Bones. Whats the point of having him fight Jones again?

Doesn't really matter anyways, unless shogun forgets to show up he will beat Vera.

Lol!

Like the winner of Fitch vs Alves at UFC 117 was getting a title shot?

Like Hendricks was getting a title shot after beating Koscheck?

Yea, OK, what Dana says goes and this totally isn't just hype to build up the fight... Phone Post

The only two people who can veto Dana are the Fertittas and they are busy with the other business.

Tired of seeing rematches. Jones has wrecked all for LHWs on the Fox main card. No desire to see any of those fights again. Phone Post

I still don't understand how Shogun thinks beating Vera brings him closer to a title shot than beating Glover.

 Are you saying this as though Dana couldn't just as easily have said that the winner of Shogun / Glover gets a title shot?

He COULD have, but since Glover is a total unknown (or at least would be if not for the Shogun-decline hype), who knows? We do know what he's saying regarding this fight.

Yeah Vera wont get a title shot even if he wins, I dont care what Dana says right now to hype this Fox show up.

Dont matter anyway since Shogun is gonna win. Jones/Hendo vs SHogun rematch makes sense while they get AG a big fight when he returns, its kind of a way to pass the time until AG is ready.

Will anyone really complain if they did a Jones vs Shogun rematch or Hendo/SHogun rematch, say on Fox in Dec? Would that really piss anyone off?

Vera though, if he actually beats SHogun and Dana gave him a title shot it would be embarrassing to the UFC and the sport. Vera has no upside, he isnt a star, a PPV draw, a guy with a huge streak of wins that you just cant ignore any longer, he would have one win over shogun. It makes no sense.

Bingo!

If Shogun wins, then sure, he might get a title shot.

If Vera somehow manages to pull off a fluke victory, there is absolutely no chance he gets a title shot...

If Vera wins, who do you guys think Jones is gonna fight four months after Hendo? Keep in mind Gustafsson wants another fight or two before Jones. Glover for (potentially) beating no one but Rampage? Do you propose sitting Jones for 8-12 months while we search for a "worthy" contender?

Lol at Vera getting a shot, who is essentially 1-3 in his last 4 fights. What Dana meant to say was...

"We think Shogun is going to beat the piss out of Vera and then we want him to rematch Jones next." Phone Post
