    I think he should take fun fights at FW or a 140 catchweight.

    Edgar/Faber has been a dream fight for me. Faber/Penn could be fun too.

    He could but no. I'd rather see him go back to 145. But it's iffy, you got benevidez at 125, dillashaw the new 135 champ, and Mendes at 145. He will never win the belt, but there are a lot of fights with him I'd like to see at 145

    He would finally get that ufc gold if he did but it would impossible for him to make that weight

    Can't see him making it... He's a thick dude. Would say he should go back up.

    No. After Alex he should finish his career by taking dream fights like him vs Frankie or Penn at 145.

    Plus a third fight with Cruz will always be a option and big fight for him at 135.

    He can't make 125, yes he put on more mass thru the years but even in college the lightest he wrestled was 130 and he's not getting younger. At this stage I doubt he would even consider it

    Nope. He stays at 135 and aims for the Cruz/Edgar fights. Hell, go for the BJ fight as well.

    Should just say at 135 and the Alpha Male guys should just all fight each other for the title... or maybe not
