    Belcher out, Boetsch out.

    Don't really consider Okami and Phillipou contenders, but Belfort/Bisping will settle it even further.

    I wonder if Weidman can avoid getting side railed and continue lobbing shots at Silva to talk himself into a title fight.

    They either need to sub out Sonnen for Silva or make Silva vs Weidman. Belcher straight up ignored instructions and lost himself that fight. Everything went wrong for Boestch tonight. Honestly I don't care if Bisping could beat Belfort(unlikely), Weidman is the only person left worthy to contend now.

    Dana is paying these guys to lose so AS is free to schedule super fights. :)
     
  5. MW looking alot less stacked after 2night...boetsch and belcher were never real MW title contenders...at least belchers status was a little more realistic...not ranked top 10 but on the verge...boetsch top 5 ranking was just fucking retarded and overblown...derailed by a guy thats not even top 15...

    There never was a logjam. It was just desperate marketing that people bought into trying to legitimize Anderson even further... not that he even needs it.

    There isn't a single MW on this card that should ever be fighting AS in the future. It'd be a waste of everyone's time.

    The MW division is so competitive anyone can fall.

    A truly elite division.

    That's why Weidman fans want him to fight Silva so bad now because in this division it's only a matter of time.

    Then factor out all the MWs fighting outside of the division (Maia, Sonnen, Hendo, Nate ect) and this division is awesome

    Lombard
    Rockhold
    Bisping
    Weidman
    Jacare

    ...all solid contenders.

    IMO

    Vitor/Bisping winner (hopefully Bisping) vs silva
    Weidman vs okami for next shot, Chris should easily win this.
    Costa vs rockhold
    Lombard vs jacera

    The division got messed up with boetsch and belcher losing.

    no, anderson is elite. but he's also head and shoulders above literally everyone else at MW. which means the division ISN'T elite. if the entire division was elite they would have actual contenders that could actually pose some what of a threat to him. but they don't.

    MW is a weak division, but anderson fans refuse to acknowledge this because they think it will make anderson less legit by admitting that he reigns over a shitty division.

    Going by your logic 205 is weak because no one can compete with Jones

    Further proof that without anderson silva MW would look super tight and competitive.

    lol stop trolling. not even you believe that.

    Boetsch and Philipou might be top MWs but they are not elite.

    I look forward to who you guys will argue deserves the shot more then Weidman next.

    how the fuck do you guys discredit Weidmans wins when any top MW can just as easily be torn apart.

    the contenders have a better chance against jones than MW contenders have against silva.


    and just to clarify, if MW is considered elite, what do you consider silva?
