    A little fun thread here, WARNING: It may take a little use of the brain function and knowledge of the rankings and past fight results but you dont have to go to crazy. Id like to see what some people say. Who do you think would be the current UFC champions at this moment in time if the current champions didst exist.

    For example i feel the champions would be

    UFC lightweight: Tony Ferguson-------He would have fought Eddie Alvarez in which he would have been schooled by Tony in every way shape or form IMO.

    UFC welterweight: Demian Maia ---- By schooling Condit. The last man to nearly defeat Robbie...would have been number one to fight Lawlor based on the impressive finish alone and has been well deserving. I believe would have taken it to the ground and finally realizing his dream by becoming the champion by defeating Robbie Lawlor via submission.

    UFC middleweight: Luke Rockhold--- As Luke Rockhold defeated Chris Weidman for the belt I would have thought an immediate rematch would have taken place here....ANYWAY Chris got a neck injury and pulled out of the fight with Luke, next in line would be Jacare Souza but the deal with him was he had just fought and from what I remember he turned down the short notice contest...more time passes...(Bisping doesnt exist), so Luke may had to take a fight with either Mousasi or rematch with Belfort in which Luke would beat both in this case IMO.

    UFC light heavyweight: Rumble Johnson. ------No doubt in my mind he is the scariest dude in MMA right now. You get hit you fall. Jones still aint back yet so until then its just a stagnant division and hes beaten everyone except Jones (yet)

    UFC heavyweight: Alistair Overeem ------ Was game in his last fights (before his Stipe fight) So him vs Werdum....say Werdum had the same game plan of running forward carelessly that night in Brazil The Demolition man would have finished Fabricio in the same fashion Miocic had.

    WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS, THOUGHTS? You dont have to go through the time line like I did. ELIMINATE today's champs and who do YOU have on top?

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    I put the "assuming Aldo" thing because some people think Conor is still the FW champ, which I frankly don't get, but everything else is pretty much "They're the champ, and that's that".
