(A) I never said he was ever not going to get a title shot again. I said there was a chance he wouldn't. Look at Koscheck after GSP. Or Fitch after GSP. After they both got beat, even though they had decent winning streaks, they never got title shots despite them being much better then most of the competition GSP faced afterwards. Hell, look at everyone Anderson beat so far. No one except Sonnen got a rematch. That's what happens when you lose to a fighter who is dominant in a division. You get stuck in purgatory.
(B) Shogun will probably never get a title shot after what Jones did to him the first time. And the Machida rematch might happen if he gets past Hendo, but not one fuck will be given. It'll probably draw like 300,000 buys.
