5. Rashad
6. Phil Davis
7. Sonnen
8. Bader
9. Lil Nog
10. Thiago Silva?

Gustaf is getting his shot now.

Rashad was destroyed by Bones and has done nothing to warrant any more title talk now.

Machida is a 185er now shouldn't even be on the list.

Sonnen got ragdolled by Bones.

Phil Davis is a contender by default.

Bader got destroyed by Bones and hasn't done anything to warrant title talk.

Lil Nog has been hurt, really only had one good win over Rashad.

Thagio Silva isn't a contender.

So really how can anyone be flung up to the elite? There is no one left to challenge.
And that's what is unfortunate about the current state of the LHW division.

1. Bones
2. Gustaf
3. Machida
4. Rashad
5. Phil Davis
6. Tex
7. Sonnen
8. Lil Nog
9. Bader
10. Shogun/Henderson/Mousasi

Neither Mousasi or Machida have actually fought at MW yet, so lets leave them here until they have.

I just feel like these new guys have only fought the old guys.... none of them have been forced to fight each other so it's difficult to get a read on where they are at.

I understand the UFC's marketing reasons for this, but it doesn't help when guys are getting title shots or being called next in line when they don't have any truly disguising wins.

My top 5 is Jones, Gus, Evans, Davis and Machida in little to no particular order(other then Jones on top).

Evans isn't there just based on name. He has beaten many other top LHW fighters and although he lost to Lil Nog I think he is actually the better fighter overall.

And yes Machida isn't fighting at LHW anymore but he is still a top 5 fighter in the division, he is just hoping to have more success at MW.

Teixeira, Henderson, Lil Nog, Sonnen and Bader round out the top 10 again in little to no particular order.

Shogun and Mousasi are close to top 10 but just outside at the moment imo.
