    Out of the contenders or guys I think will be contender how many do you think are undeserved? I think there's a lot more deserved than undeserved so I don't get all the complaining about a guy like Hendo getting his shot. Here's the list anyways:

    HW : Overeem
    LHW : Rumble/Glover winner probably
    MW : Hendo
    WW : Wonderboy
    LW : Nate/Conor winner
    FW : Aldo
    BW : Dilly
    FLY : Who knows who cares

    Out of that the only ones who aren't deserved are Hendo and Nate/Conor winner but I'm good with both because Hendo may just lay out Bisping and Nate/Alvarez would be a ridiculous fight.

    Wonderboy won't get the next shot at WW if Woodley has his way. It'll either be Nick Diaz or GSP.

    Belts are changing hands so quickly there has hardly been time for legit challengers to develop in many divisions.

    As Long as Ronda gets Nunes

    and I think everyone is glad Hendo gets one last shot at UFC Gold to complete his Resume

    rightly or wrongly, i am very pleased.

    cement a legacy, rematch that bisping wanted for year, and it could be a very interesting fight and huge for eurpoean mma.

    Hendo is the worst one by a mile. Makes their ranking system look pointless.

    Aldo is technically the Champ so no Overeem deserves it GSP deserves it if he comes bcak Dillashaw deserves it before Barao it's clearly Hendo. One of the worst ones in history at least of the modern UFC

    Any instant rematch regardless of how dominant the prior champ was is complete bullshit. There should always be a fight or two in between. That's where I would start first.

    Used to, in order to be the man you had to beat the man. Today, you have to beat the man twice.

    If it's Diaz it'll be undeserved but I have a hard time finding GSP undeserving. Best WW champion ever that didn't lose his belt.

    I agree with this but it doesn't look like any are coming up. I think in order to fight for the title you absolutely need to be on a win streak even if that win streak is just one win, it makes no sense fighting for a title if you lost your last fight.
