    Lightweight is a free for all right now, we don’t even know if the two best lightweights are fighting.

    Welterweight I don’t even know who the second best WW is with Colby ducking everyone except Kamaru.

    Middleweight I think it’s Whittaker but maybe Adesanya is different without his loss.

    Light Heavyweight is the same.

    Heavyweight is a wasteland without Ngannou.

    Stipe may be punch drunk. Black Beast is #1 heavyweight without Ngannou?

    How?

    The Champions are everything right now.

    Lightweight has always been a free for all.

    I agree the only division I don’t really think would be toss up without the champ is FW. Max in my eyes is far and away the best fighter at 145 if you don’t include Volk

    Brian Ortega 2.0 looks pretty special at 145. I know he fought Max and lost convincingly. But it's seemed to have lit a fire under his ass. Don't sleep on 'em.

    Colby and Whittaker would run their divisions with an iron fist if it wasn't for Usman and Adesanya

    Only top contender for Whittaker left is Costa

    Chimaev is the clear champ at WW and MW already, even without any lungs at all.

    I think Ortega is going to beat Volk. I just don’t know if he’s improved enough to defend against Max. If Max and Ortega fight again I expect it to be more competitive but still a clear decision
