    HW - Miocic. Good chance that he gets beaten by Overeem and maybe Cain or JDS again.
    MW - Bisping. There is a great chance that get beaten by Jacare, Romero, Rockhold, Weidman, Machida and Whittaker.
    WW - Woodley. There is a good chance that gets beaten by either MacDonald, Wonderboy or maybe (big question) Maia.
    LW - Alvarez. Good chance that he gets beaten by Khabib or Ferguson.
    FW - McGregor. Good chance that he could get beaten by Edgar and maybe Aldo or Holloway.
    FBW - Nunes. Great chance she gets beaten by Shevchenko, and a good chance that Zingano and Pena beat her.

    Are there more that you think? or is that all?

    Disagree with the featherweight division. Conor is unstoppable at 145. His biggest threat is the scale.

    The only one that has really proven unquestionably that he is the best in the division is Mighty Mouse. An argument could be made for Cruz as well.

    Conor has beaten 2 of the current top 15. There is a good chance he beats most of them, but he hasn't proved it.

    Everyone is beatable. That being said McGregor is the most dominant champion just by the way he dispatched his opposition.
    Cruz got beaten by TJ, and will lose again in a rematch (*if it ever happens).

    usada has changed the game

    the ufc will need a year to reset their rankings after the new testing, a lot of fighters will look different

    Cruz won 3 rounds, TJ won 2...... that means Dom wins. The judges all agreed with me as well

    Are you daft? Conor has beaten three of the current top five.

    Miocic is an unknown so I don't feel comfortable questioning his abilities, he is the champ.
    Bisping is capable of beating all of those guys so it's not for sure he isn't the best.
    Woodley just beat the man and again so he should be considered the best.
    Alvarez had some UFC jitters but sense then he has been dominant and before then he was the underground champ.
    McGregor is the best FW just not a good LW/WW.
    Nunes looks like a beast right now so we'll see on that one.

    Overall I think it's pretty bold to call out a champ for not being the best in their division. So you better come with some better arguments than those if you're going to say it.

    Conor will be hard to beat in his weight class He's just bigger than everyone and hits hard enough to put them out. Joanna as well.

    Rest seem very beatable. But who knows maybe Woodley goes 10-0. That would piss ppl off here haha

    Maybe clean MWs cant beat all natural bisping.

    Much fun ahead
