    Sickest division in the UFC right now? I think quite possibly. So many awesome matchups that can be made. What are some matchups you’d love to see at Bantamweight right now?

    Some things are exciting but can't compete with LW.

    It is definitely sick (in a bad way) if Cruz gets the next shot over Moraes.

    I like the division as a whole but they keep fucking up who is in title contention. Dom/Dilly would be the 2nd title fight in a row where the contender is coming off a loss.

    TJ/Moraes
    Cruz/Assuncao
    Lineker/Garbrandt
    Rivera/Sterling

    I'd like to see these matchups next.

    Lineker vs Garbrandt is the fight to make. It'd be awesome to see Cody getting KOed 3 times in a row.

    It's really great right now the only thing that would put it over the top would be if the 135lb champ actually defended against a contender in his own weight class perhaps even against a guy who took the belt from him instead of seeking out money fights, but that may be a bit too crazy.

    My favorite champ right now is TJ Dillashaw, actually my favorite top fighter in the UFC. The BW division reminds me of UFC's Light Heavy weight 2007-2009 Where the top 5 Machida, Rashad, Shogun, Rampage, Griffin were all playing hot patato with the Belt, while some prospects like Jones, Bader, Davis and Gustafsson were roaming around.

    I still like to think of it as the Brian Caraway division.

    Pretty sick. I don't see how a grown man without AIDS could get below 135lbs

    They're all 150-160lbs...which is perfectly normal for guys their height and frame size. Everyone's perception of what an acceptable weight is dramatically skewed these days by all the fatass people. The average man weighed 150 in the 1950's. Today, the average 5'9'' tall man weighs 196lbs with more than 20% body fat.

    BW and LW are the most stacked divisions. Garbrandt won't be considered a contender until TJ's been dethroned, though. He'll probably scurry off to 125 in shame.
