I really, really wish Hector could fight Bisping. I would love to see that fight go down. I think Hector puts him to sleep. I also think Hector puts Belcher to sleep and finishes Sonnen. The guy is legit.

He's already beat the UFC Champ in decisive fashion, I don't think Ben is that much better since because I believe he lost to Edgar twice but I believe Pettis has sharpened up his wrestling and I think he'd win a rematch even more decisively. I also think he's gonna knock out Cerrone.

I a Chandler fan and I love watching his fights, but im not sure where to rank him. I was never very high on Alvarez to begin with, so a win over him didnt really merit a top eight ranking in my eyes. That, along with Bellator keeping their champs pretty inactive makes it hard to gauge how good a guy really is.

Definitely can't wait to see him in the big leagues one day.
My top 10:

1) Benson Henderson
2) Anthony Pettis
3) Gray Maynard
4) Jim Miller
5) Joe Lauzon
6) Melvin Guillard
7) Clay Guida
8) Yves Edwards
9) Gilbert Melendez
10) Michael Chandler

You just can not find good assassins these days!
I give this bitch a month before someone comes forth with better aim and does what must be done.

Chandlers next contender could be a repeat which also won't help him. IMO the lw tourney is a weak field that you can expect the winner of pitbull and delorenzi to win. Personally I think they have the two favorites fighting in the opening round.
