    Title explains.

    HW
    Curtis Blaydes aint gonna do anything. No disrespect he seems tough at least

    LHW
    Just an abomination of a division
    Volkan at #3 sucks
    Glover is ok but isn't going to do anything significant.
    Manuwa is an embarrassment.

    MW
    I can dig the people in the top 5. No complaints.


    WW
    I can dig the people in here, although Maia's days in the top 5 are likely numbered.

    LW
    I am ok with the people in here. I mean, Alvarez never sniffs the title again but thats ok. Hes decent.

    FW
    I can dig the people in the top 5. No complaints

    BW

    Thread earlier was asking the weakest division... Thinking 205. Man that shit was stacked and pure excitement. Now I think the whole division is a joke... The champ left for a Money-Fight in another weight class. #NEW BLOOD NEEDED !!!

    think rivera is gassed and TJ/Cody would whip him. he was in a competitive close fight with almeida who's been shit since cody blasted him in a minute. not sold on him at all.

    on top of that he doesnt finish fight - he makes fitch's finish rate look decent

    RDA: not a believer, don't think he's a threat at all to the champ.

    Volkov, Hunt, and Reem in the HW top 5 is just SAD.

    Shogun being a top 6 LHW is pretty sad too. Volkan at 3 is laughable.

    MW is cool with lots of new blood.

    Colby Covington. As soon as he fights a legit striker with decent TDD he's getting KTFO.

    SHW is as overlooked as ever. Top 5 doesn't even matter when a weight class is that exciting.

    I think Woodley is a bad match up for him, but he's absolutely a top 5 caliber WW.

    FlyW: Borg.. I think Ortiz should be in the top 5

    BW: Assuncao.. I think Stamman should be in the top 5

    FW: Cub.. I think Elkins should be in the top 5

    LW: Conor (should be stripped and removed from rankings for inactivity)

    WW: Covington and Maia.. I think Till and Usman should be in the top 5

    MW: Weidman and Gastelum.. I think Santos and Tavares should be in the top 5

    LHW: Jimi.. I think Shogun should be in the top 5, but would like to see Pedro in there after another couple wins

    HW: Werdum or Overeem.. I think Volkov should be in the top 5, but would like to see Tuivasa in there after a couple wins

    HW - Black Beast , he's basically a brawler with shit cardio , great ko power but won't ever go to the top of the division.
    LHW - HA !!.
    MW - If i was to say the least it would be Weidman , he ain't ever touching gold in that division again.
    WW - Cody Covington
    LW - All are great
    FW - All are great
    BW - Dominick Cruz , he ain't holding gold again , love to see him fight Edgar however.
    FLY W - Dodson.

    Cormier is also having trouble with the cut now, so it's hard to really blame him. But yea. Jones is out, Cormier may leave for HW and not return. Rumble may be back at hw if he comes back at all. Gus is inactive. Shogun is awesome, but he's 95 in fighter years. Only other guy I care about is Latifi, and he's got a pretty clear ceiling (but given the state of LHW, maybe not).

    Colby Covington. He sucks.

    Conor McGregor. Debatably not even Top 10.
