    It doesn't mean you actually think the champion would lose, but rather the guy that would present the most challenges for them stylistically.

    125: Cody Garbrandt
    135: Cody Garbrandt
    145: Chad Mendes
    155: Kevin Lee
    170: Rory MacDonald
    185: Gegard Mousasi
    205: Jon Jones
    265: Brock Lesnar

    Yes, I know what you're thinking about Cody and TJ. But I still think that Cody is the toughest matchup for TJ at 135, despite getting knocked out in their first fight. I don't like Moraes' chances of beating Dillashaw either.

    Cody would have an even easier weight cut to 125 than TJ would, and should be favoured over Mighty Mouse in my opinion.

    My brother, these guys aren’t even in UFC. By this logic I could say mike Tyson poses biggest challenge to heavyweights and Bruce Lee would just about kick everyone else’s ass.

    I think prime Cain beats Stipe, but I think 2018 Cain is too injured and broken-down to be a legitimate threat, which is why I went with Lesnar (assuming he can somehow circumvent USADA).

    Isn’t GSP avoiding Woodley like the plague?


    Good list by TS. I agree with it.

    you could definitely be right. cain needs to get out there and show us what he can (or can't) do at this stage in his career. I think he'll come back strong. I could be wrong, but only one way to find out.
