    Who do you think the top 5 fighters would be in a 165 lb division?

    Khabib
    RDA
    Masvidal
    Colby
    Cerrone

    who else?
    Pettis? Chiesa? Nate?

    Colby looked visibly bigger than robbie so not colby.

    Currently (meaning guys who are too big for 155 but very undersized for 170.

    1. Jorge
    2. RDA
    3. Pettis
    4. Nate
    5. Cerrone

    Damn, Kevin Lee may have wanted that division as badly as anyone and now he can't even crack the top 5 on anyone's list he needs to get himself a head coach FFS.

    I mean it would essentially be a division of rejects from 155 and 170. Pettis, RDA, Lee, Cerrone, Perry, Vick, Nate.

    Even at 165 I think Ferguson and khabib would beat everyone. Maybe even Poirier.

    People still over-rating RDA i see. The guy is 1-3 in his last four fights, when will it end?

    I think Lee would make the top 5 of a 165 division.

    Out of Khabib, RDA, Cerrone, Askren, Masvidal, Pettis, Nate, Vick, Chiesa and Lee how would you list that top 5 (Not a fan of Chiesa)? I think Lee isn't done but he probably should look into getting a head coach and not just piecing his camps together...

    Askren is a 155er who doesn't wanna drop 8 lbs of fat and cut another 7 of water.
