    Heavyweight: Stipe. Yes, he deserves it. He finished some real good opponents. Would like to see him versus Cain or Minakov though.

    Light heavyweight: Cormier. The division is pretty thin. Some people argue that he got defeated by the cheating Jones twice. Rumble is already out. So I see only Gus or Volkan trying to step in.

    Middleweight: Bisping. Not defending the title for a long period, picking money fights when he would have opponents to fight. Of course, there is the interm champ here...

    Welterweight: Woodley. People argue its the most boring champ ever.

    Lightweight: Conor. Not defending the title, he's more a star rather than the LW champ. Of course, there is the interm champ here...

    Featherweight: Max. He is legit here. Would like to see him once fight Conor again, to argue he is the best FW

    Bantamweight: Cody. He still needs to prove, lets see after TJ. and maybe MM

    Flyweight: MM has no real competition. Being a king over poor rather than getting some fights at BW?



    From all the list, I see only Max, Stipe and MM as 100% real champs (beating the best in the division, not being hated - have some popularity, no interm champs there, people not complaining they are boring or cheating etc.)

    I agree about LW & MW being dumb right now.

    Woodley is legit as fuck.

    Cody is legit, but agree he hasn't proven he's a dominant champ yet. Looked incredible vs Cruz though.

    And of course Joanna & Nunes are also legit. Cyborg too, but her situation is as weird as ever with the UFC.

    You're missing the point. Woodley is boring, he is not popular. He might be legit, but he doesn't have the charisma for a champ. He needs to attract more people.

    How is DC not the real champ at LHW? Jones got busted for roiding twice, ffs.

    Cody legit beat Cruz and made it look easy. He showed that he is the future of the division in a very dominant fashion. How come you don't see him as the real champ?

    Bisping is a sign of the apocalypse, the end of MMA.

    No, I didn't miss the point, I just don't agree with it. I don't agree that being "boring" makes you not a real champ.

    Conor is the champ, but he is not defending his title. Most probably he will TKO Tony, but he needs to do it.

    It's about fighting,,, not attracting people... Unless you work for the UFC...

    Most of us are fight fans and like to watch fights... Woodly had a couple stinkers... But he fights often and when you look at what he did to Lawler and Condit, he can be very exciting... Thompson has to take the blame for some of the most recent boring WW events.

    He's like the new Tim Sylvia, taking the belt everywhere and never shutting up.

    I hope GSP gives him another droopy eye.

    I don't disagree. I wish they would put him/Tony and Khabib/Nate on the same card. It'd be a mini tourney and would guarantee 2 huge cards.
