    Just a random poll. Who do you consider the 'true' best non-champion fighter in each division right now?

    HW - JDS or Werdum?

    LHW - Gus or Cormier?

    MW - Machida or Vitor?

    WW - uh, take your pick...

    LW - uh, take your pick...

    FW - Mendes or Swanson?

    BW - Barao or Cruz?

    FLW - Dodson or Benavidez?

    WBW - Zingano or McMann?

    You can write in your own for the ones with two choices too, but I just couldn't pick 2 main ones to choose from for WW/LW.

    How you put Rockhold over Vitor is outstanding...did you forget something? (Hint in the spoilers)

    Oh hey, what?

    Kid's got good upside, but he's not #1 contender at LW yet.

    Stylistically, he's a horrible match-up for Pettis. With 1 more good win, he's no doubt the #2.

    You think he'd beat JDS in a rematch?

    Maybe, I guess we'll see. I personally think someone like Gil would give him fits.

    How can you have Josh Thomson as the true #2 LW? Benson, Gil, TJ, Khabib would all be ahead of him imo.

    Possibly, because Gil is just well-rounded and tenacious as fuck. I'd like to see that match-up, actually.

    Yep.

    Werdum was fat and was like "lol, who the fuck is this scrub?" when the fight was booked. Plus, Werdum has gotten much better since then.

    Werdum's beating Cain too.

    My blindness for Werdum may be on par with your blindness for Anderson. :p

    Because Thomson is a better fighter than all of them, imo.

    This isn't who I think should get the next title shot, this is who I think the best fighter in each division (excluding the champion) is.

    Hey now, I'm not saying Anderson would beat Weidman in a rubber match, so don't be salty :icon_twis

    Werdum would have a chance, but I just can't see him winning a stand up battle with JDS. I'd shit myself if he beats Cain.
