    If Machida losses I don't see anyone from Brazil that could potentially win a title.

    Barao will always be in the mix, especially if TJ loses to someone else. Middleweight is stacked with Brazilians. They're SOL in the other divisions though. And Aldo probably won't lose for a long time.

    I have faith in Werdum. I thought he would beat Browne and he exceeded expectations.

    That being said, I think Machida beats Weidman too.

    U expect Machida to carry Brazil? Hell I'm still waiting for the "Machida Era"!
    Machida has lost 4 out of his last 9!
    Machida is 36 years old!

    I think Werdum, & Aldo, will be around for awhile....hopefully others will step up! But Machida - nada!

    He's 36, I dont think he will be able to keep it at that level for too long.

    Machida/Belfort/Souza are all top ten at MW and I give them fair chances against Weidman. And Silva is still top ten and probably will remain in the top ten til he retires.

    Werdum has a better shot at Cain than most folks believe and Assuncao already has a win over Dillashaw, and he's due for his shot soon as well.

    He's the last best chance. Isn't he training in the US now though?

    I just want to see what Belfort is like without TRT. MW is pretty stacked right now if you think about it

    I agree. They have Aldo and some guys at middleweight. That's it.

    Pretty surprising considering I remember a few years ago everyone was saying that Brazilians were going to dominate the UFC.

    HW: Werdum will not beat Cain. JDS probably wont even get another shot at him. No other Brazilian poses a threat here.

    LHW: No Brazilian in the foreseeable future poses a threat to Jones, Gus, or DC.

    MW: Machida has a shot. Maybe Belfort and Jacare too.

    WW: No Brazilian in the foreseeable a future poses a threat to Hendricks, Lawler, Rory, Tyron, etc.

    LW: No Brazilian in the foreseeable future poses a threat to Pettis, Benson, Khabib, etc.

    FW: Aldo

    BW: Based on the ass beating TJ gave Barao last night I really don't see Barao doing too much better in a rematch. I mean he was thoroughly outclassed in all areas of the game. Aside from Barao there aren't too many other top Brazilians there. Maybe Assuncao.

    FlyW: No Brazilian in the foreseeable future poses a threat to Mighty Mouse, Benavidez, etc.
