A lot of fans thought Raphael Assuncao -- winner of six straight -- was slighted when the promotion asked TJ Dillashaw to fight Renan Barao for the bantamweight title in the new UFC 173 main event (more on that here). That's because the Brazilian beat the Team Alpha Male product by way of split decision in late 2013, but was unable to answer the call when matchmakers needed him, thanks to an injury suffered in last month's win over Pedro Munoz. Perhaps Assuncao can get first dibs on the winner?
