    Gustafsson easily, i can see him beating cormier now and went 50/50 with jones

    Gustafsson. Because I don't think DC or Jones will ever be back to LHW, and Rumble is now about 300lbs.

    Ngannou is 52 and yet still the most likely to see gold in the future.

    None. Gus refuses to fight, Oezdemir isn't beating the top guys, and in Ngannou's mind he's been the champ for over a year now.

    Likely Gus as the bar at 205 has been drastically lowered through suspensions and retirements. Unless Weidman, Rockhold, or other 185ers move up it will take another 2 years for the division to become competitive through prospects getting better. The top 205ers (not counting DC) are basically upper/lower tier gatekeepers
    Gus....meh
    Manuwa....meh
    OSP.....meh
    Glover.....meh
    No Time....needs more time to develop
    Latifi.....same as above
    Corey Anderson....less than meh
    Smith....shows promise

    205 sucks. DC and moreso Jones destroyed that division by making everyone look bad, lol

    Gus gave both Jones and DC a hell of a fight. I don't think it's s stretch to imagine him besting either man.

    As much as I hate him the answer is Colby Covington. Being stripped of his fake belt and denied a chance to unify in favor of Darren Till will mean little in the long run. He will get the Woodley-Till winner and even if he loses that I see him getting gold eventually.

    Of the 3 you posted I guess I'd go with Gus as long as Jones and DC are out of the picture

    Only Gus

    EDIT: Ngannou too I guess if he remembers how to throw a punch, everyone at HW is 2 KOs away from a TS.

    True but doesn't fight much anymore. Seems to have lost the passion

    Ngannou.

    Gus is crippled and whining 25/8. Which is a shame, because he's a treat to watch most of the time.
