    fw- love MM but thats too easy. Ray borg for me he really puts on a nice show and has shown great skills
    bw-TJ is awesome love his fast footwork and his hands are money
    fw-aldo conor edgar etc etc same old names but I like Godofredo Pepey hes very exciting to watch. He is all over the place.
    ww- Condit and lawler are fantastic to watch love both of those guys, really cant choose between them.
    mw-Luke has a great style and great hair
    lhw-Gus always puts on a hell of a show
    hw-Well its certainly Fedor if he comes to the ufc but if not, I really love watching Travis fight, for a man that size to be so light on his feet is amazing. Reminds me of vintage Aleks from back in the day. Just magnificent to watch his footwork.

    Gus as champ? Man that wouldn't be good, everyone still remembers Rumble crushing him in minutes.

    Man I hope Ray Borg is the next contender after Cejudo. He's the only one with a legit chance to detrone Mighty Mouse.

    I agree with the Travis Browne pick.

    He is almost always in awesome fights one way or another whether it be a spectacular superman punch KO, or a comeback front kick KO vs Reem, or a mauling of GnP vs Schaub, or even dropping Arlovsky after getting rocked.

    His level of entertainment when fighting is highly underrated IMO

    So are we really going to pretend like this isn't a "my favorite fighter in each division" thread?

    I like having the best fighters as champs, and the current group is pretty damn close.
    The exceptions imo are 135, 155, and 205 where the top guys in those divisions are out of action. But in each case, the current champs are damn solid.

    well maybe I should have explained some logical criteria. The fighter has to be at least CLOSE to a championship level. In other words i wouldnt put Cathal Pendred as my pick for his weight division and the second criteria is that its someone you "enjoy" watching fight so it would be an easy champ to root for. The guys I listed were all high level guys with a chance for title contention and they all have styles I enjoy watching. Borg may be a stretch right now but that division isnt exactly deep at the moment so he may get a title shot in 2016 with another win. Browne is set back a little bit but with hw's one big win gets you close to a title shot. Pepey is a longshiot but hes been on a tear lately with lower comp, interested in what he does when he breaks into top 10 talent.

    Now best champ. I'm going to use the criteria of making the UFC the most money.

    Flyweight no one currently in the UFC

    BW - TJ but let's be honest. He's not selling ppvs anytime soon
    FW - Conor
    LW - Pettis
    WW - condit or lawler
    MW Weidman / rockhold
    Lhw jones
    HW Cain I guess

    Except Gus. Gus will be champ. The KO was a fluke.
