LW divison next year

What do you think the light weight division will look like a year from now, who will be champ? I think Sherk will probably be champ but im guessing Spencer Fisher may get a shot soon. I dont think Fisher gets the respect he diserves he's a very talented fighter who lost once in the UFC by a majority dision and he was asigned to that fight on very short notice. His last victory was sick! So I'd say a year from now Sherk will be def aginst Fisher and that fight can go either way. The LW division looks exciting cant wait for a champ to be crowned.
Guillard, Pulver, Sherk, Fisher, Franca and maby Florian will keep this division excitng.

Yea Sherk just seems like a compact Hughes but with more talent to me. I don't know who can beat him at lightweight honestly. Hate to sound biased but I think if BJ moves down, he might stand the best chance. But out of what the division has as of right now, I'd say Pulver has the best chance. I'll wait to see how Melvin does this saturday but I can see him being a real force in the division as well.

Forgot about Tyson and BJ. I think if (BIG IF) BJ losses to Matt he'll go down to 155 and may win the belt there.

155 is his narural wieght class. So it would be interesting. But i think sherk is the man.

I think if BJ were to move down he would definatly take the title. Yes I know he lost to Jens but I still think he would take the belt now. Sherk would give him a run for his money tho

14-1 in Forum Bets

Well I think that even if BJ does beat Matt, he will still move down to 155 and try for the title there. I heard a rumor a few months ago that he's shooting for lightweight, welterweight, and maybe even middle weight UFC belts at the same time. I can't find much about it nowadays but maybe someone else heard this too and can back me up?

If he really said this I think he's pushing his luck. He's a great fighter but he's only human.Three titles is really too much for BJ or anyone for the matter. I do think he'll have atleast one belt though either as a WW or LW.

As much as I like BJ, you're right....BUT how awesome would it be to see him actually win all 3 titles though? It could happen, he's very capable. If anyone in MMA can do it, it's definately him, agree?

LW division is the best. I hope sean keeps the belt forever but theres alot of strong young guys comming up like Joe Stevenson and Melvin Guillard so it should be fun to watch.

btw Pulver will be in the mix to.

I think spencer fischers kinda overrated, he almost lost to "Handsome" and then he did loose to stout.

So...just my opinion

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
