    Masvidal is one.
    He has lost some freaky decisions and got finished way back in 2009.

    When he is aggressive, he is fun

    Very slick

    Great speed and goes for the body.

    Any other dark horses?

    You probably mean champ

    My first thought was maia but he's getting close to a shot again

    I thimk lawler is going to have a problem with everyone though. His age, the wars, the late career resurgence at a dirty camp, and the fact hes barely squeaking out wins fight after fight leads me to believe hes on his way to a losing streak. Woodley is probably the easiest contender for him right now

    I was also thinking theres an outside chance rashad is a factor at mw. I dont think any of those guys can take him down and his boxing/power stacks up very well vs the contenders

    In most classes, I think anyone in the top 10 is tough enough to be a problem. In the lighter classes, not so much.

    Agree. His loss to Nelson shouldn't have put him back too far, and he said that he wants to return this Winter, so we shall see.

    Fun to watch. He looked allergic to grappling in his 2 losses though.

    I don't think he's too far from the title but he's still a ways away.

    I agree Jorge would give Eddie a boxing lesson if they matched up, I assume you mean Eddie not Robbie any way
