The cool part about the UFC is when you become a PPV star then you are matched up with an opponent with an equal amount of star power.
Jon Fitch probably earned a shot rather than Dan Hardy. Why Hardy got the title shot earlier (i know that Fitch had his shot earlier, but he was a guaranteed contender if he beat for example Thiago Alves and still didn't have his shot)? Imagine when Overeem failed his drug test if DW and co. decided to give the shot to Hunt? Mark Hunt would be much more dangerous for Dos Santos than Mir. Why Hunt didn't get his shot? Because it would be much harder to explain to the fans that the actual champ lost to a fighter who lost a fight against a guy who won only one fight in the UFC and the hype was pretty much bogus for Dos Santos(in case if Hunt would won against Dos Santos of course).
