    It's pretty clear some champs want nothing to do with the #1 contender, but who wants the best fight?

    My vote goes to Alvares asking for Conor. To be honest the guy is probably biting off more than he can chew
    Strangely every other new is champ is

    They hate that he actually wants to fight.

    Alvarez lost a ton of his time to that lawsuit with Bellator. I don't care if he wants a money fight.

    I'd say Stipe would like to prove himself as well.
     
  5. I'd say at this point Cormier. He could of fought Bader but he fought Gus. Has stated himself that he will fight winner of Rumble-Glover.

    Alvarez should not be challenging a fighter from a weight class lower than him when he hasn't even defended his belt once. That is weak sauce.

    DJ. He'll literally fight anyone the UFC puts in front of him. Doesn't matter who it is or if he's already fought 2 times previously.

    As mentioned above, DC and Stipe are also champs willing to take on all comers.

    Stipe is a robot and will fight anyone

    DC will try and get easy fights if they aren't totally stupid, but he's too intelligent to kid himself like some other champs might

    Bisping will generally fight anyone; Hendo isn't the deserving contender but it's still a challenge Michael's yet to accomplish

    Woodley doesn't care about being challenged. He cares about his brand

    Alvarez has admitted wanting the easy fights. Obviously McGregor would take his head off, but he's too stupid to know that

    McGregor is #1 out of the current champs on this list, of course

    Cruz chose Faber over the DIllashaw rematch, and appears to be ducking Dillashaw still as well as Garbrandt

    Mighty Mouse is a robot and will fight anyone

    Amanda Nunes wants the Ronda fight for financial reasons, but she hasn't tried to pick easy opponents

    Joanna genuinely seems to want challenges. She's probably #2 on the list after Conor

    Cormier -- fought at HW and then came down in weight to fight a potential GOAT candidate (pre-USADA)

    Conor -- moved up in weight

    Damn, forgot Joanna. She's a killer.

    He left the division to avoid Frankie.

    No he didn't. He picked RDA over Frankie. Then he picked avenging a loss over Frankie (or Aldo since at that point there was talk that he'd have got the rematch over Frankie)
     
  16. Last time DJ saw a challenge was in his rearview mirror on the way to Flyweight.
