Cormier has a damn fine chance at 205 if he can get down there, and a helluva chance at HW if/when Cain loses the title (as they won't fight each other, sigh)

Melendez I can see beating Henderson, but losing to a few others at 155 so it depends on who is the champ at the time, but I can definitely see him wearing the belt for a time.

Ok let's play out a couple scenarios. More then likely if Pettis beats Cowboy he could get the shot before Gil. But if he loses it's pretty certain that Gil will get the next shot. So more then likely if his shot isn't against Bendo it will be vs Pettis. Do you think Gil would win the belt if Pettis was the Champ?

Probably. I think he could grind him out and win a decision. If Guida can do it...

Actually the more I think about Melendez vs Bendo I start to retract my previous statement lol.

Where do you stand on Eddie Alvarez vs Gilbert Melendez?

I think Eddie has the potential to be top 5 in the UFC division, but he gets rocked and dropped so often I can't see how he'll stand up to the bigger punchers. He's so well rounded but gets cracked all the damn time, and he's not exactly a big 155er. I'd like to see him at 145 tbh.

155 is so stacked I really find it hard to say who's going to beat who or who's going to be the champ/number one contender. I could happily make a top 5 out of the top 10

If Chandler can come over from Bellator as well when his contract is up...crazy times.

Ok what are your feelings on Michael Chandler and Rick Hawn? I'm very, very high on both. How do you think they matchup against Gil, Eddie and the UFC LWs?

Is Chandler facing Hawn next? Fun fight, I think Chandler will beat him pretty decisively though.

Atm I think Henderson/Edgar and Maynard will beat them all. The first time around at least. Each of them will give the top 10 fighters like Guida, Miller, Cerrone, Pettis a run for their money. I dunno. Like I said it's hard to say (for me at least). 155 is too talent stacked to make any 'for sure' calls imo.

What do you think?

Nicely played. But did she WIN the UFC title? or did Dana GIVE it to her?
