    Ortega for the title? That's ridiculous. He's nowhere near at the head of the line for the title. Edgar and Aldo and certainly Volkanovski are ahead of him.

    Give him Elkins, so he can beat yet another guy coming off a loss.

    Moicano vs Elkins makes zero sense. Moicano will #5 in the updated rankings

    You definitely implied Cub's demise in chin has much to do with Choi, which is far fetched.

    Show me the score card then.

    Zabit is also a classic example of someone's that's gonna soon have trouble making the cut and be forced to move to LW.

    Well if thats how you interpreted it fine but that is not at all what I was meant to say. As for the scorecard its really not hard to find at all but there you go. R1 Ortega with every judge.

    Moicano is ranked #10. I wasn't aware there were such thing as Zabit dick-riders. And you seem really passionate about this subject matter. Why is that?

    I thought u meant Ortega took all the rounds lol.

    Ortega won the first for sure, but definitely lost 2nd and was losing the 3rd.

    Still, it would be nice to for ortega to beat a top guy who isn't coming off of losses. Bektic makes sense to me because he just beat lamas, who is a better win than cub.

    In FightMatrix, #17 Moicano just beat #15 Cub Swanson. That's a much better indicator of where the two really stand. Based on that, Moicano deserves #11 Elkins next.

    The stupid "official" UFC rankings are commonly ignored for a good reason.

    Mendes ....

    Aldo or Ortega are a fight away for him still IMO

    He was gonna win the third, Moicano was slowing down a lot, his nose was busted and Ortegas pressure was getting to him. His volume dropped and when he couldn't slow Ortega down on the feet he shot a sloppy single leg and got finished. It was going to be a clear 29-28 for Ortega had it gone to a decision.

    moicano was, what, 30 secs away from a ud against jose ole'. set 'em up. don't like the idea of mendes in there - while impressive his last fight after 2 yrs was a strong left and some gnp.

    Moicano is doing good but IMO he needs to win one win to deserve a title shot.

    Some combination between him, Bektic, Mendes, Volkanovski and the Zabit/Yair is gonna happen probably. Featherweight is fucking staaaacked

    I want to see him avenge his loss to Ortega. He was beating juicebox on the feet before getting caught in that sub.

    Moicano is very good and i feel he could be Max' Gus to his Jones. That said, there's plenty of options at FW. Aldo and Frankie are stil at the top of the division but yet another ts for either would be boring. Moicano, bektic, zabit are the new gen and it would be nice to see young blood fight for the title. Let's see how the upcoming fights play out

    He already has 2 top 5 fighters in his resume , and he is a top 5 fighter for sure no matter what rankings say . Destroying Cub the way he did is 100000x better than going to war with kyle bochniak of all people LOL . zabit should fight volkanovski if he gets through yair

    I could only choose based on process of elimination
    Ortega Vs Holloway will hopefully happen very soon
    I'd like Jeremy Stephens Vs Chad Mendes
    Jose Aldo, if he doesn't move up, could face Renato Moicano.
    Frankie Edgar and Korean Zombie might need a rest after they have their fight while all the above mentioned have fought very recently together so they would all have similar recovery times.
    Cub Swanson can then have his next gatekeeper fight against Bektic.
