    Which weight class has you the most intrigued at the moment?

    The most interesting to me currently:

    BW: Barao seemed to have this division by the nuts, but now we have a new champion, and perhaps we see Alpha Male vs Alpha Male with TJ vs Faber. Mizugaki is on a tear as well and looked good Saturday.

    WW: Stacked division with tons of exciting match ups. Lawler's career resurgence is the best thing going in MMA IMO, and I can't wait to see the likes of Lawler, Hendricks, Rory, Lombard, Woodely, Condit, ect fight one another for years to come

    LHW: DC/Jones/Gus make the division a little top heavy, but Rashad and perhaps Rumble Johnson are also in the mix. 205 has always been my favorite weight class, and I love the talent at the top currently.

    MW/WW
    LW
    FW
    BW
    LHW
    FlW
    HW
    WBW

    I would have FlW > LHW but the Jones/Gus/Cormier clusterfuck at the top of the division is great. LHW outside of the top 15 is extremely uninteresting imo (except for Maldonado).

    I think the division most likely to change champions in the near future is the MW.

    WW is probably the most exciting. MW after a rocky period is now one of the best divisions. but my pick is the new WSW division being added on TUF20.... thats going to be fucking awesome imo

    MW because of the number of talented and worthy contenders (Anderson, Belfort, Machida, Jacare and Mousasi)

    FW/BW because of the best MMA rivalry today. Nova Uniao vs Team Alpha Male.

    They have the best lightweight guys in the world and everyone thought that Nova Uniao had Alpha Male`s number, but things changed!

    Nova Uniao 4 x 2 Alpha Male

    Barao def. Faber 2x
    Aldo def. Mendes and Faber

    Dillashow def. Barao
    Benevidez def. Jussier

    MW. Weidman, Jacare, Vitor, Machida and Rockhold all in the mix. Anderson too when he comes back.

    Best weight classes atm are the ones where the champs are not sidelined from injury

    Probably WBW or LHW would have the most interest. Watching the best fighter on the roster against guys with mad skills and watching Ronda's judo are the highlights of events for me now that my two favorites are gone from WW (Fitch and Georges) and Frankie is in FW.

    MW is probably the most intriguing only because there's all kinds of matches to make for the title now that everyone is mostly done losing to Anderson. Really though there's just great fights everywhere. I don't consider myself a fan of 90% of the roster, but I do love watching them go to work.
