LOL me either. He doesn't deserve shit. He was offered a chance for a title shot and turned it down.

Gustaf wants it.

Two of those options aren't even fighting at LHW... what a mess this division is.

If Gustaf beats Mousasi, he should get the shot. Sorry Machida, but Gustaf's run will be a lot more impressive than two wins against Bader and Hendo.

I don't think it is that much of a mess. It has been a mess because Bones turns down fights so does Machida. Sonnen is holding it up for months with this show. But Hendo was and still really is a legit contender. Machida is there. Gustaf is 100% deserving with a win. Then you have the best P4P lingering which is totally deserving. And Cormier I think should fight Machida, but a top 5 HW coming down to 205 is always interesting, and hardly ever has happened.

I think the division is pretty interesting right now. 3 pretty legit #1 contenders. Tex looming. Mousasi could upset. Then 2 guys from tops of other divisions possibly wanting in.

And still very entertaining fighters and big names on the outside like Lil Nog, Rashad, Bader.

Gustafsson, if he wins. I've seen what Lyoto brings to Jones, and a second fight isn't gonna change much.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

If Gustaf wins, I'd like

Jones - Gustaf maybe in the fall.
Machida - Cormier maybe late summer.
Hendo - Lil Nog as soon as possible.
Rashad - Shogun in the summer.
Bader - Phil
Tex vs. lets say Te Huna.

If Mousasi pulls it off, Machida vs. Bones next. Cormier straight to title shot if he beats up Mir. Mousasi vs. Tex for next title contender sometime in he fall or winter.

The gap between middleweight and light heavyweight is too wide. Lt.Heavyweight should be 200 pounds limit!

That way we wont have these super tallers who weight 220 at fight night!

Brian Stann should move up and fight Jones. That seems like the only logical option since Jones only fights MWs now.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
