UFC Welterweight Division
 
How does everyone see the top 10? What are some fights you want to see happen in the division?

Who is next for the two WWs that just fought last night; Maia, Woodley

For Woodley, personally I'd like to see him fight maybe Fitch, Koscheck, Pierce or even the winner of Stun Gun/Siyar or even John Hathaway

Maia needs a top 5 guy. And I think the best choice would be the winner of Ellenberger/Hendricks or Rory/Condit (though Rory is not top 5 for me)

I'd like to see Hendricks fight for the title if he gets past Ellenberger and meanwhile Maia could fight the winner of Condit/MacDonald for #1 contendership (Though MacDonald won't fight GSP, assuming he's champion by then)

Hendricks deserves his title shot if he wins. There'd be no denying him that.

I'd love to see Maia vs. the winner of Rory/Carlos. Tyron is an interesting and scary addition to WW. He just got KTFO by Marquardt, but I couldn't help but feel as though the Tyron we saw last night would have KOed someone like Maia. I love this division... you never know who's lurking around the corner.

I'd give Tyron the loser of Ellenberger/Hendricks. I think he's ready for the big time.

Nick Diaz would be a fun matchup for Maia. Diaz should be able to take it easily if it stays standing, but his TD defence sucks ass so Maia should be able to get him down without too much trouble. And once it's on the ground, that's when the fun begins. Diaz has a much more offensively oriented ground game than Fitch, I would really like to see what they can do to each other on the ground.

I think Tyron has loosend up a bit after getting his first loss. It's happened to other fighters before, so it's my best guess.

But yeah, he looked very good last night. Interesting guy to follow :)

Maia has done what he should have a couple years ago, and that's learn how to wrestle. A guy with his grappling chops should just give the finger to striking, and own fools on the ground, and fighting and his proper weight class doesn't hurt either... I think Maia should get Koscheck after he lnp's Lawler to death, or Kampmann. Woodley was impressive, but he beat Jay Hieron, and needs to be tested against any top 15 guy.

Despite Nate's last fight, I'd actually be interested in seeing how Maia vs. Marquardt II might go. That could be a good one.

I'm sure Dana would find a way. You forget that if Hendricks beats Ellenberger he would be a winner. Dana doesn't like giving winners title shots.:sarcastic12:

But yeah, Maia vs Condit would be an interesting fight. Maia vs. Marquardt might be fun.

Eh, it was a good win. But it really didn't tell us anything about where he is at as the fight was so short.

I think they should build Tyron a little more. I mean he only beat Hieron, he looked awesome. But lets not feed him to the lions just yet. Give him Koscheck
