After Max Halloway successfully defended his championship, will the UFC finally let top contenders fight for the title?
Max Halloway successfully defended his title but and this is a very “but” because this is the same person he took the belt from. Now, I felt the title match even before Frankie Edgar got injured should’ve been Cub Swanson seeing as he’s on a 6 fight win streak. Speculations have come about that after his contract is up, Cub may jump ship to Bellator. I cannot blame Cub Swanson if he makes this decision because he was obviously robbed of a UFC title fight and the new owners didn’t even bother to pick him as a last minute replacement. Now we all know Francis Ngannou is up next to challenge for the Heavyweight Championship in the near future. If Ngannou isn’t the next top contender that would be robbery seeing as yesterday he beat the number 1 guy. I understand the UFC has to sell pay-per-views but top contenders can’t get their foot in the door because they don’t progress as contenders.
