Weidman looked beatable and he's got plenty of guys who would give him a tough fight. All the up and coming contenders are legit.

Belfort, Souza, Rockhold, Mousasi, Kennedy are all great challengers.

I'd never like to use MMA math but holy shit, I don't even think Munoz hit him once, it's not really fair to compare Weidman's wrestling to Mark's.

Rockhold is the only one who has a real shot.

I think Chris will run right through Vitor.

Jacare, Rockhold, and a Machida rematch are all fights I'd love to see.

This. Moose is an underdog but an interesting underdog whos very hard to finish and could pull off the win from any position the fight takes. Wouldnt put even money on him but I certainly wouldn't count him out either.

Moose is not submitting Weidman off his back - it simply will not happen. I'm a big Mousasi fan but he is simply one of the most overrated fighters in mma.
