Who will become a top contender?

Which of these TUF winners do you think will be the first to fight for a title?

We will learn a lot about Diaz and Danzig next week, and I think Amir will be more successful if he does drop a weight class as was rumored.

The fighter with the most experience is Danzig, and I think he has the most well-rounded skillset. I see him becoming a serious contender in the next 18 months, if he can stay healthy.

All 3 of these fighters are exciting to watch, but they still have a lot to prove. TUF contestants have been having a lot of success as of late, and hopefully that trend continues.

I can't see amir fighting for the MW title anytime soon. I think if nate and danzig keep winning (and finishing their fights) then they will get a title sometime soon. If I had to pick i'd go with nate.

FFL 3rd +90
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
Demian Maia
Martin Kampmann
Nate Diaz

Although I think Amir might have the most potential out of the 3 theres no way it will be him first. Hes fights behind the other guys right now. I think Nate Diaz is prolly going to be the first. I don't think Danzig will be beating Guida.

Mac will. He's very well rounded, good cardio and strong. I can see him being a threat.

Amir seems to have great potential, but he's pretty green, and I think he's going to have a few losses before he's really got his technique together to the point where he can compete with the top guys.

My guess is that Nate will be the first one to get a title shot. People always seem to get caught in that triangle.

Mac is decent in all area's, but he isn't the standard of the other contender LW's in the division. I think he will lose to Clay.

Nate probably has the most chance.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I guess it'll be Nate, but I don't think he stands a chance against BJ. Mac's got a better shot than he does.
