    Choose any of the fighters in the UFC, minus the current champions, as your pick for the next long title reign.

    My pick is Alexander Volkanovski in the FW division. He's short, but he's got the perfect mix of wrestling, power, strenght and cardio to not only give anyone a run for their money, but absolutely dominate them. His worst performance in the UFC so far was against Shane Young, and only because he didn't try to strike with the guy, but rather shut him down with his wrestling, and did so with ease.

    Here's an ASMR highlight I found of Alex:


    WAR ALEXANDER THE GREAT!

    Nice choice, I was thinking of picking Frank Camacho myself.

    Nice question. The obvious answer is Jon Jones at LHW.

    Here are my other picks:

    - Jessica Andrade at SW
    - Valentina Shevchenko at FlW
    - Curtis Blaydes at HW
    - Zabit at FW

    Gregor Gillespie
    Brian Ortega (Max won't make 145lb safely ever again)
    Curtis Blaydes
    Aaron Pico
    Kevin Lee (if they make an inaugural 165lb division, as he can't consistently make 155 and is not big enough to hang with Wodley)

    Figueiredo is a guy I'm keeping my eye on, I think of him as a better version of Lineker without the weight issues.

    Aaron Pico is he comes over.
    Zabit looks great in all areas and is still young.

    Not so sure about Ortega. I think Aldo could give him fits right now and take that belt back.
