Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAMania.com's Mike Bohn.
With upcoming UFC title shots coming up for surprise challengers John Moraga and Chan Sung Jung, Breen and Bohn reflect on the state of contendership in the UFC. The two break down how Moraga and Jung will acquit themselves in their championship contests, whether or not the process of selecting title challengers has changed in recent years and the relative rarity of fighters having breakout performances in title fights.
Breen and Bohn also take a historical look at UFC title contenders, looking at the best fighters to vie for gold in the Octagon and never get over the hump, as well as the worst performances from challengers in UFC championship bouts.
