"That's the ultimate goal - that hardware. Big congrats to Dominick (Cruz) tonight. He had a great performance, he looked really well and he performed top-notch. But my eye's on the prize, and I think had I not had to pull out of the Damacio fight, that would've pushed me a little bit closer. It's an unfortunate event; it happens."

With the vicious knockout slam of Ken Stone at WEC 53 putting his winning streak at four in a row, Eddie Wineland feels he is one step closer towards receiving a UFC bantamweight title shot, but would've been even closer had he been able to compete against Damacio Page at WEC 52. Wineland has defeated the likes of once top contender Manny Tapia, George Roop and Will Campuzano. Wineland will enter the UFC with a record of 18-6-1. What are your thoughts, Maniacs? Do you believe Wineland will eventually get a title shot? Or will the top dogs in the 135-pound division be too much for the former WEC bantamweight champion?
