I don't really see the guys in bold as contenders yet. I guess Cummo is turning up the heat but I don't see much improvements in Burkman and Petz is meh for me. The others have not really established themselves either (this includes Swick, I suppose).

WW is a deep division.
If Matt Hughes retires, Diego drops down etc you have guys like Marcus Davis and Thiago Alves coming up.

How do you see Chonan as a contender? The dude beat Andderson Silva fighting at MW. He lost to Baroni(yeah, shouldn't really have been in there) and Filho and Hendo, nothing to be ashamed of there. He just needs to beat some top competiton again. Guys a beast.

i hate to admit it but GSP is the most talented fighter in the WW division, but at the same time i don't think he is mentally strong enough to hold the belt. they say defending the belt is 3 times harder than winning it and i can see him being a 3 or 4 time champ but with few successful defenses.

He has like 2 losses and he's mentally weak?
