I guess White thought Rampage deserved a shot in front of Jones, too...

White is a fucking moron if he really tried to do that. Shogun would have been taking home Rampage's ribcage again.

What is with White's crush on Rampage, that's what I honestly want to know.

Well, in White's defense they said they didn't want to rush Jones. So if they're not rushing Jones, Rampage is the only other viable option, imo. But who cares? Jones is getting the shot and we'll see what happens. Jones is the favorite in that fight right now, too!!!

I highly doubt Jones is the favourite.

And Rampage should definitely not have gotten it over Jones.

For one, Rashad beat his ass everywhere.

And two, the Machida fight was razor close if anything and not impressive by either fighter at all.

Thiago Silva is a good challenge right now to show if he deserves it.

Jones is the favorite right now.

And compared to any of the LHW's not named Jon Jones, Rampage deserves the title shot the most.

Actually, Jon Jones is a huge favorite right now!

Just looked it up.

Jon Jones is 1.485 decimal / ~1/2 fractional / -206 American / 66.6%

Shogun is 2.580 decimal, +185 American and 33.3% as far as the bookies are concerned in terms of real probabilities.

Amazing. And I'm kind of thinking that's gotta be a huge value bet on Shogun. I mean, that guy just knows how to strike.
