How is it cleaned out? Cain's last 5 fights have been JDS three times and Bigfoot Silva twice... are you kidding me?

He's still got Werdum, Browne, Stipe Miocic, Overeem, Hunt, etc.

I said MW and WW WERE cleaned out for years. Obviously not anymore. Weidman just won the belt....just like Pettis, actually has defended it once unlike Pettis. WW doesnt even have a champ right now..

Flyweight isn't really a fair comparison, as it is the newest division. Plus, even at FLW there's still Dodson 2, McCall 3 + Ali Bagautinov is making waves, and possibly John Lineker if he doesn't move up.

Not officially cleaned out but on that list...I dont see people well rounded enough to deal with Cain's violent pressure

Werdum won't be able to outbox Cain or beat him in the clinch
Browne will get takendown and Cage beat much like Rothwell
Miocic hasnt shown much
Reem...the mighty have fallen
Hunt hows his TDD now.

The guy who beats Cain will have to be a well rounded machine

For everyone saying MW has always been weak ask yourself why weren't people moving up in weight or dropping weight to fight Anderson? They were scared.

The point is there will ALWAYS be another top contender.

Instantly assuming a champ will beat all of his competition =/= cleared out division.

It's HW, anyone can lose to a KO on any given night.

The only problem I have with Cub vs Aldo is that his last win was Siver.I am so tired of people getting title fights without beating a top 5 guy.Koch was gonna get a title shot after beating Brookins?Werdum for beating big Nog?Anyone that beats Shogun gets a shot.Glover just beat Ryan Bader FFS!!!I'm not saying these guys dont deserve shots it just looks better when Big Rigg beats Condit then fights for the title.Who thinks Cub could beat Mendes or Edgar?I'm not sure he could

Swanson is the man. I don't care if it's Mendes or Aldo and neither does he: just let the guy fight.
