During his injury break Barao and McDonald emerged as fresh new contenders. A rubber match with Faber is still feasible and Wineland is improving and has been looking sharp.
We're looking at a couple years worth of fights right there (if he wins them all and that's a big if) and by then more contenders will emerge. I don't like when fans clamor for fighters to move up in weight because they win a bunch of fights. IMO champions should have no obligation to do so.
