I think Hughes will have a similar problem in that GSP has beaten him twice which means Matt will have to do more than others to get that shot

I completely agree.
The problem I have is that Dana White promised the winner of Fitch/Alves a title shot. He should not have made that promise unless he intended to follow through with it.

well.. it's not like Matt hasn't beat GSP...

seeing that Matt took no damage on Sat.. he could fight again if he wanted..

But take the fall off..... let's hope that Koz.. beats GSP (yeah right...) and them Matt gets Koz...

I fight I have ALWAYS wanted to see.
It is because you chose to get on the mat that makes you the winner. Think about how many people are not on that mat right now. - Luis Sucuri Togno

I bet they give Matt the loser of Kampmann Shields or ALves for some retribution.
As much as I would LOVE to see Alves / Hughes 2,
I think they're going to give Alves somebody he can beat.
(see what I did there?)

He has 2 losses in a row now, and Matt is on a roll.
I think the way things are going he would work Alves.

I think Alves should have to move up to MW, which after 2 losses in a row and not making weight may happen.

As far as a rematch with Matt, IDK, what does Matt want? Who does Matt want to fight???

Please consider England in your prayers!
