Maynard may get a title shot with a win over Grant just based on the timing and considering the fact that the lightweight top contender is leaving and not fighting until August.

Nobody?

I know he doesn't have many wins, but its been almost 2 years since he fought for the title.

Benson fights Gil in less than a month, and there is nobody at lightweight right now to fight the champ besides maybe Gray.

If you look at the UFC rankings, the #1 contender is fighting for the title, the #2 is fighting for the FW title in august, and then Gray is the #3.

If he beats TJ he will at least retain his ranking, and if Gil loses to Bendo he will probably drop down.

They could possibly set up bendo vs Gray in August-september range, and then have the winner face the winner of Aldo pettis on a card around new years.

The Pettis vs Aldo fight makes less and less sense to me every day.

Title shot for beating TJ Grant who is ranked #10 in the Light weight division..Put down the bongs.

 

1 Bendo
2 Pettis
3 Melendez
4 Diaz
5 Cerrone
6 Maynard
7 Jim miller
8 joe Lauzon
9 Jamie Varner
10 either grant or khabib

Not even if he KO's Maynard in the first will he get a title shot leap over the whole top 10.  He would need to create buzz like Nick Diaz to even have a shot of that.


Is this your list or the UFC official one? I'd guess yours since you don't have a definitive #10.

But anyway, how is Maynard only #6 when he's only lost one fight? IMO he's #2, 3, or 4 (after Bendo, maybe Melendez, and maybe Pettis). Cerrone definitely isn't top 5 these days.

I think he was just making a joke on twitter because of all the guys moving down. Hopefully he and Aldo would fight each other if Maynard was champ when Aldo comes up

Not the biggest Maynard fan, but due to his freak of nature size for his weight class....i see him being the only one to test Bendo right now Phone Post

I think TJ Grant could feasibly beat Bendo. He improves literally every time we see him Phone Post 3.0
