You know what sucks? Being the number two fighter in a division, but being that number two by only the most narrow of margins.

You know what also sucks? Being the salty veteran of the division who’s been on such an incredible tear yet somehow can’t get a title shot.

If you guessed that I’m alluding to Carlos Condit and Demian Maia, congrats. You deserve a prize.

So the guy who just can’t quite win a title fight is taking on the guy who just can’t quite get another title fight (his last shot at the belt was about a million years ago), and they’re doing it at UFC 202 (which has turned out to be a pretty damn epic card).

Predictions for this bout?
