The winner of UFC 157's co-main event between Dan Henderson (29-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) and Lyoto Machida (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) is expected to get a title shot, according to UFC President Dana White.

"Whoever wins that fight will fight the winner of Jones-Sonnen," White said today, referring to the UFC 159 headliner between champ Jon Jones and challenger Chael Sonnen.

LOL @ Dana saying that just a few weeks after he said Gustaffson would earn the next title fight if he wins.

I think Gustafson chose to fight Mousasi instead of waiting for the title shot. Phone Post

I won't believe it till I see Jones (As much as I love Chael no he isn't going to win) and his opponent walking to the cage. Phone Post

That's because you bad at seeing through smoke screens. Dana said "A" title shot with Gus, not the "next" one (not that he does not lie as he does, but smoke screens are more common for him. Once in a while he tells the truth too and it's hard to say sometimes too).

yeah, looking back on it he says:

"As far as Gustafsson goes, if he beats Mousasi in that fight, he’s in line for a title shot.”

"http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/02/alexander-gustafsson-gets-title-shot-if-victorious-in-ufc-on-fuel-tv-9-main-even

Which I guess could be interpreted to mean he's  "in line" , not necessarily "next" ugh, is there no better process of determining title contenders?

It would be insane if Hendo wins and doesn't get a shot. INSANE.

But why did Dana say Gus was getting the shot? We all knew that wouldn't be the case if Dan won.

What confuses me is I get Dan was supposed to get the shot and hurt his knee. So Jon took another fight and then Chael talked his way in.


But Gus was told with Shogun if he won he got the title shot.. He won but had to fight Gegard? Not sure if it was a waiting game that he didn't wanna play or what Phone Post

Machida: title shot after KO won vs. Bader, later taken away because Machida wouldn't fight Jones on two weeks notice.

Henderson: Title shot ended due to training injury, now must beat Machida for title shot.

Sonnen: Not ranked, lost last fight at 185, guaranteed next title shot after TUF.

Dana White: "This time we really really mean it. The winner gets the next title shot, well, unless they refuse a short notice fight, get injured, or another guy loses in a lower weight class and talks a bunch of trash. But until that happens, the title shot definitely goes to the winner of this fight. Really for real this time."

Yeah, and he's recently claimed that the winner of Mousasi/Gustafsson fight and Daniel Cormier are in the mix in addition to the winner of this fight. He also said that there could be a Jones/Silva superfight in the fall.

Dude's all over the place.

I just think it's funny that both of these guys had the next title shot already, never got the title shot for one reason or another, but a guy who isn't even ranked and lost his last fight at a lower weight class is guaranteed a shot because he talks a bunch of trash.

"The next title shot" means fuck all in the UFC. The determining factor is purely the whim of the promoters, not the performance of the fighters.
