It doesn't matter, because I don't think he'll be going back in with top guys when he comes back.
By top guys I mean Weidman, Machida, Belfort, Rockhold, Jacare, Mousasi, Kennedy, etc. Anderson is nearing 40 and doesn't want the intensity of the title chase anymore, he's done his time.
I think he will only have a few fun fights as a swansong once he's back, fights like Nick Diaz, the Cung Le/Bisping winner, GSP, a Hendo rematch, etc etc. Kind of like what they did with Matt Hughes once he was on the downswing.
