I like Hamill, glad to see him come back for another fight, hope he wins.

I think you guys are underestimating Hamill a little. The guy beat Boetch, Munoz, Ortiz and Jardine. I wouldn't call that "outclassed at the highest level" by any stretch (except against Jones, but EVERYONE is). His record is 9-4 in the UFC, and he's fought tougher competition than a lot of other LHW regulars.

I'm not saying he deserves a title shot based on where he stands right now. I'm just saying that once Jones clears out Belfort/Henderson/Gustafsson (which I assume he will), Hamill could give the UFC an option.
