Johnson vs. Gustafsson was a true #1 contender fight; Why can’t we have more of these fights?

This is something that has puzzled me for a while now and that is the lack of true number one contenders fights like Anthony Johnson and Alexander Gustafsson one. All too often we end up with a fight where it is obvious who the UFC wants to win so they can fight for the title.
