If rich doesn't beat him this weekend than he will Defend it about 2500 more times cause that division has no threats. Mcdonald was beat by Rich Okami was beat by rich.. I really think that Rich is comming in with a game plan and i think he will execute it well.. look at the end of the fight Rich will be the Winner..

I voted 6-8 pending his victory this weekend. I'd be happy with either guy winning.

I think that Anderson is the best champion since Hughes. The guy is soo persistant and makes awesome fights, never takes time off for anything (cept for that knee thing in February), never makes excuses, never shit talks his opponents, he's just an all around classy guy and if he wins this weekend, then his reign shall be feared throughout the division and admired and envyed by the other champions.

Some of my thoughts on the guys you listed are in bold.

Aquired

Yushin Okami-needs one more fight
Jason MacDonald-needs one more fight
Drew McFedris-unsure
Martin Kampmann-injured??
Patrick Cote-should fight winner of Okami/J-Mac for shot, IMO
Thales Leites-too new? Needs more fights to build up name recognition.

There are some good guys, but these are the only ones, that, IMO are legit material.

Unaquired

-Denis Kang (Heroes)
-Fihlo (WEC MW Champion)
-Robbie Lawler (EliteXC & Icon Sport MW Champion)
-Murilio Ninja Rua (Former EliteXC MW Champion)-his brother Shogun might be able to bring him in so its a toss up, IMO.
-Frank Trigg (??)-Rumored to be fighting Fihlo for WEC belt
-Dan Henderson (Sounds like he won't be fighting under the UFC banner again let alone at 185)-if he stays he is staying in the LHW division.
-Matt Lindland (Bodog )-he is more a mercenary fighter and the whole IFL thing leaves a bad taste in Dana's mouth so I doubt he will be in anytime soon
-Cung Le (EliteXC)
-Frank Shamrock (highly doubtful)
I think counting out the WEC is kind of dumb as they are under the Zuffa Banner and could possibly be moved up and down as needed.

I also think it funny you left out Leben, Starnes, Belcher. If the Leben that fought Terry Martin continues to show up he could be in for a good build up to a title shot. I see Cote fighting winner of Okami/J-Mac for shot with the loser fight Leben to maybe be #2 or get a rematch with Starnes if he beats Belcher. Also you got a great boxer and coming up wrestler in Marcus Davis so I don't think the MW is as screwed as I use to thin.

Edit: I voted four to six times.

I agree, that Anderson is very cool and collected, that doesn't mean he fights flawlessly though. He puts himself at way more risk just to finish fights than necessary.

Look at his fights with Lutter and Marquardt. He was taken down by both because of being overly aggressive, and ended up in a compromising position with Lutter.

Rich is a smart fighter and we've learned that it really doesn't matter who is the better on paper, but who is better on the fight night.

he'll hold it as long as the level of competition remains the same in his division. If Hendo moves down or if the UFC comes up with some better MW contenders then we might se him dethroned.
