    I’m ranking all the fights in order based on how hyped I personally am for all the fights that were announced earlier today. These are based on a combination of how exciting the fight will be in addition to how relevant each fight is.

    1. Khabib vs Conor - No brainer.

    2. Woodley vs Till - Championship fight but could be either be a slugfest or snooze fest regardless it’s the 2nd fight I’m anticipating the most.

    3. Poirier vs Diaz - I don’t see how this doesn’t get fight of the night at 230 not to mention the impact this fight will have in the LW division

    4. Gaethje vs Vick - LW division is the Premier Division and these two are guaranteed to give us a show. I think a win should propel the winner to a top 5 opponent

    5. Brunson vs Adesanya - Interesting to see how the up and comer does against a higher ranked opponent. This would certainly place him up against a top 5 opponent if he wins

    6. Volkan vs Anthony Smith - Even though the winner will likely get a title shot, I ranked this fight so low because of how irrelevant the LHW division is right now.

    7. Cowboy vs Perry - Definetly will be fun to watch.

    8. Jimi Manuwa vs Glover Teixeira - Honestly this fight isn’t even Main event material.

    9. Montano vs Valentina - WMMA who cares

    Woodley/Till has a more than decent sized chance of being a dud.

    Shame on you for putting that ahead of Diaz/Dustin.

    I didn’t say it was going to be a better fight, but it is a bit more important if a fight than Diaz/Poirier and I’m more excited for it

    Poor Till went from Conor 2.0 to a laughing stock. His Wonderboy fight was horrible and it boggles the mind he got the nod without even fighting a wrestler. He is totally unproven but the UFC is going to rush him in to a title shot, as he will be lucky to make WW 1 more time and even more lucky to survive the weight cut.

    Oddly enough I think Threadstarter nailed my rankings. Wish I would have done mine before looking at yours because once I saw yours I basically thought "yep"

    Dustin hasn't gotten better since he was in FW, he's simply fighting worse competition. Someone who can be a top 3 in lw can hardly hang onto staying in the top 10 at fw.

    Edit: Also can you name any lw that has moved to fw and did better? Because there's plenty the other way around.
