Well he will beat Leben, and that adds to Day and McCarthy

It seems that Franklin is staying at 205 for now, so you've named 3 ahead of him, and I will asume you will add Hendo, but who else?

Maia is definitely above Bisping, he has beaten better competition at 185.

I know some hardcore Bisping fan is going to neg rep me for this, but I can't see anyone making a case for him even being in the top 15.

Ok, he beat Jason Day and Mcarthy, so what? If everyone that beat two cans was in the top 5/10 in their division, we would have 50 potential top 5'ers. Until he beats a name or big talent, I can't see a reason to consider him anywhere near the top MW's, which is pretty sad because the MW roster is hurting for some talent. Not only that, but every time he has faced decent competition like Rashad Evans or Hamill (and don't even say he won), he has lost.

If you get outstruck by Hamill, what hope do you have against Silva, Cote, Hendo, Okami, or even Leben?

he definately lost the hamill fight but i think the rashad evans fight was really close. The only reason he won is cos he took him down, doing little damage in the process, and i dont think bisping was that bad i that fight. They are decent competition but bisping didnt suit lhw, the guys are to big for him to handle. He maybe able to be more dominant in the mw division
