    If Jon Jones is found to be a cheat, stripped of his title, his win over DC overturned etc etc etc... basically if Jon is no longer champ & out of the picture for a year or so, could Anderson make a run at the LHW title?

    Rumble
    Gus
    DC
    Davis
    Glover
    Shad
    OSP

    edit: obviously, Anderson wouldn't have to beat all listed fighters to get to the title, but could he beat 1 or more of these potential belt holders?

    IF Jones is stripped

    IF Anderson moves to LHW

    IF TS's thread isn't retarded

    Too many if's for me to speculate.

    Anderson would get destroyed vs any decent wrestler in the lhw division.

    Wow, that is a murderers row right there. I think he possibly takes W's over OSP, Shad, Glover and Davis.

    I think he gets outworked and overpowered by Rumble, DC and Gus

    ps - so much explosion @ 205

    Bonnar and Forrest were impressive wins and even more impressive performances leading up to winning but in the big picture, aside from Forrest's very, very brief run as a serious contender when he beat prime Shogun and squeezed by Rampage for the title, they are still mid-tier guys.

    I can't see Anderson initimating and outclassing top LHWs, especially at this point of his career. Not only has he lost some ground but his opponents will no longer respect his aura or whatever--which was really a big part of his game.

    I am still enjoying it, brotha.

    Never had to make an apology in my sig, so that's something.

    That would be the greatest thing to happen to the LHW division and the UFC in a long time.

    I think DC and Gus are the only two who would give him real trouble. He isnt going to make a run for the LHW title though, not at this point in his career
