    Bantamweight has:

    Cody
    Cruz
    Dillashaw

    I cant think of another division where the top 3 are this talented. Not even close. Interesting to see if you guys any division competes with the top 3 talent.

    Conor Khabib RDA smashes these bums. Of course literally but in skillset comparison too.

    Middleweight is more talented, too:
    Weidman
    Romero
    Rockhold
    Jacare
    (Mousasi)

    Arguably LW, WW and FW are more talented as well. But yeah, all of a suddent BW doesnt look like shit anymore. Thats a legit top 3.

    im talking about just top 3. Also jones is a ? factor. But really talent wise dc jones and rumble over these 3? Rumble has a glaring weakness and one dimensional. Jones a wreck with his life.

    Middle weight?
    Bisping
    Romero
    rockhold/jacare are probs top 3... that isnt close. Bisping is no.1 whether you like it or not

    Bisping dumbass. That would be the guy ranked number one who KO'd Rockhold inside one round.

    Hard to compare since bw has waaaay faster fighters.. but i would place Jones above them all, just for being such a creative fighter. DC is also unbeaten except by Jones. Rumble is the combo breaker though.

    Dumbass yourself. If you wanna make that artificial argument with Bisping, fine. It doesnt make any sense though when you just wanna determine which division has the best fighters. Youre saying "yes MW is more talented but maybe if we use Bisping instead of Jacare" it becomes arguable.

    Yes
    Jones is the GOAT
    DC is one of the top 3 wrestlers of all time in MMA
    And Rumble is the most scary striker with a natural inhuman talent

    I would've never put Cody in that list... but he looked like a new man out there. I've never seen him that on point & technical & quick & everything. Definitely put him up there now though.

    LW got a pretty sweet trio going on at the moment. FW too.

    WW's top 5 or 6

    i guess
    mcgregor
    tony
    khabib

    is arguably as good or better. At the same time mcgregor jujitsu, khabib standup. Just feel like top 3 bantamweight are so well rounded and talented overall. for people saying jones etc... we dont know if jones will ever fight wouldnt even put him there right now. Massive jones fan but guy is a moron

    I think the TS means that each one of those guys could be Champs any day beat the other guy any day. I think that's what the TS mean because at LW well Conor's champ and Khabib most people say would destroy everybody and at LHW well we have yet to see Jones lose a title fight. So again I think TS means most talented and balanced top 3 overall.

    DC is an olympian, ragdolled Barnett, had a nice run at HW dropped down to LHW and lost only to the GOAT, he is definitely more talented than those guys

    You think otherwise because they're manlets and therefore they'll move faster and their technique will look more pleasant to the eye
