    The MW title picture is a mess right now. It's actually difficult to justify a title shot for anyone. Yoel lost to Whittaker 2 fights ago and missed weight against Luke. Jacare got besmirched by Whittaker 2 fights ago. Luke has been brutally KO'd in 2 out of 3 fights. Weidman has been finished in 3 of his last 4 fights. Gastelum got finished by Weidman 2 fights ago.

    There's no right answer to this question. No one has earned a title shot. Since Whittaker is still recovering, I'd say make:

    Jacare vs, Yoel 2 as a number 1 contender fight.
    Luke vs. Gastelum
    Weidman vs. Branch/Santos winner

    I also think it's time to give Brad Tavares and Paulo Costa a step up in competition.

    The Bisping nonsense really killed this division's momentum. It's time to get 185 moving again.

    Which MW beats Romero exactly? He's beat all of the top ones already outside of Whittaker. He just solidified that last week.

    Romero vs Whittaker.

    Frankly, I'm happy that all the top MWs fight each other. Not often you get this.

    The middleweight division is a logarithm.

    True, but the first defense was the fluke leg break and the third was against non-TRT Vitor, who was essentially a can. The Machida win was legit, but I'd hardly say that Weidman brought stability to the title.

    You seem to be forgetting Jacare. The vast majority of people believe Jacare beat Yoel and was robbed.

    Hardly a bad decision, round 2 was close. Don't mind the decision either, given Romero had the most significant moment of that fight. And there is nothing to suggest the "majority" thought Jacare won, as there were plenty who were clearly fine with that decision. It was a close fight Romero edged.

    Right before Bisping, Middleweight was my favorite divsion because of all the killers at the top. Now all these guys are in a log jam with so much wasted potential for proper TS's.

    The belt feels like abstract nonsense now

    What a bunch of fucking goofs. The 2 clear best guys are fighting each other and you're all confused. Big deal he missed weight by 2.7lbs. He's clearly the #1 contender regardless, and it's the only time he's ever had trouble making weight because of short notice

    Fuck rankings, just make Whitaker vs Gastelum since it's the only fresh match up.

    It's definitely messy right now, but the next shot has to go to Romero. Even if he did miss weight he just beat Rockhold so he has the most claim to a TS right now. If Moose didn't leave then obviously that would be the fight to make.

    Whittaker v Romero
    Weidman v Jacare (next shot)
    Gastelum v Brunson

    Which only leaves rematches for Rockhold. The rematch that makes the most sense for him would be Bisping. Otherwise he would have to be matched up with someone outside the top 10, because everyone else is already scheduled to fight.

    2018 I'm thinking Wonderboy turns into Wonderman then challenges Robert and beats him again.
