Yeah I think you would have to say Franklin then Okami, Filho. Jacare is definitely up and coming and if he could stay healthy Martin Kampmann.

I gotta go with Rich. Unfortunately, he'll never get any higher in the rankings(obviously), and all the up-and-coming talent means he won't stay at #2 for long. Guys like Jacare and Akiyama should be moving into the top five in the upcoming year.

He does. Just don't tell Nick Diaz.

I'm thinking Rich Franklin. He's got a hell of a resume. And outside of Anderson he's never been tooled.

If any style was his cryptonite. It's Andersons. Tough break for Franklin.

I think that Franklin is the #2 MW right now. My personal opinion is that Filho is just an aberration and people will start noticing that soon enough.

Good call on Jacare, but he just doesn't have enough fights against top opponents yet, not his fault, he just hasn't.

I would love to see Lawler against some of the UFC guys, but unfortunately it won't happen for a while.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

Yea I know Jacare wouldnt be ranked #2 due to his record, but I think he is possibly the 2nd most skilled and soon will have the record to back it up.

Henderson hasn't done anything lately other than beating Misaki in early 06 (Which Misaki avenged later on). He's far from the number 2 MW.

I'd pick Rich Franklin to be number 2. He holds wins over guys like Lutter, Okami and MacDonald and has been beaten by the number 1 guy twice.

However, if Rich is moving up to 205 for good, then I'd say Filho.

It has to be Rich Franklin or Paulo Filho. Besides Anderson Silva, who can beat those two?

I dig the Martin Kampmann shout out though.

1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

I could be wrong but I don't think he is going up there for good.

My vote would be for Franklin also.
