    After absolutely destroying Barao, how high up on the scale of TUF alumni do you put Dillashaw?

    His competition:

    Forrest Griffin: Former LHW Champion
    Rashad Evans: Former LHW Champion
    TJ Dillashaw: Current BW Champion
    Diego Sanchez: LW Contender
    Josh Koschek: WW Contender
    Kenny Florian: FW/ LW Contender
    John Dodson: FLW Contender (And KO'd Dillashaw)
    Nate Diaz: LW Contender

    If TJ can defend the belt 2-3 times he's pretty much the GOAT TUF contestant.

    Right now he's in the running as the best, he doesn't have quite the same # of top 10 wins that Rashad has, but with a few title defenses taht can be overlooked

    Dunno, but TUF 14 was the best season imo.

    Let's see if he can defend before getting on any lists...I still have Evans as most successful (for now)

    Evans. He's fought the best on a consistent basis.

    Same reason Ken Flo and others are on there. Kos is a good fighter and stuck around in the UFC by being *drumroll*...wait for it....wait for it.... A GOOD FIGHTER!

    Damn Goldberg said TJ was the fourth champ...I could figure out who the 3rd was, Serra.

    What??? What you just started watching the UFC tonight. TJ hasn't beat anyone other than Barao. Rashad has 3 losses in a ten year career with the UFC, TJ already has 2 and only has been in the UFC for 3 years.

    Chuck, Tito, Forest, Thiago Silva, Rampage, Phil Davis, Hendo, Chael is better than Barao.

    STOP IT!

    Rashad still. Forrest then TJ although one or two defenses should put TJ at #2.

    You're Correct. I guess serra comes next as the only other tuf fighter to pick up a belt (maybe?) . If TJ gets a defence in he will be the first fighter to do so unless I am forgetting someone?

    2 defences would put him over rashad imo.

    TUF 14 just got some more respect. that's why I watch those shows. sure, it's not the same as season 1, but the show still brings a lot of tough fighters with bright FUTURES

    TJ can definitely be the best with a couple good defences of the title.
