Best stack up weight division in UFC

I think out of all the weight divisions in UFC, the light-heavy weight currently got the most top fighters. What do you guys think?

I want to say definitely. But with Rampage leaving and Forrest being in a questionable mental state and Tito just now returning with Lidell gone...

It's hard to say. I guess any weight class with Silva and Machida are the most stacked though. Plus the only LHW outside of the UFC who means anything is Mousasi.

I think WW is the most stacked. Just because GSP is on another level doesn't mean the top tier competition isn't good. All the AKA people, Thiago Alves, Daley, Kampmann, Hazelett... There are plenty of good WWs out there; I just don't think they're capable of beating GSP.

I'd say the MW division is the most stacked. You've got Anderson Silva, the best P4P fighter in the world for me. Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson, Nate Marquardt, Wanderlei Silva, Demian Maia, Yushin Okami, Michael Bisping, and possibly Rich Franklin depending on where exactly he's going with his career. That's a stacked division right there.

LHW is still the most stacked division in the UFC.

I think Lightweight is pretty stacked, there are title challengers lined up around the block. It wont be hard to find the next number one contender after the bj/diego fight. There arent really a whole guys that def deserve a title shot in the other weight classes.

bj
diego
kenny
stevenson
edgar
maynard
griffin
huerta

When you think about it, I mean REALLY think about it, it may just be the HW division, please hear me out. Maybe not in terms of depth but in terms of justifiable title contenders. At LW no one is going to beat BJ, same story at WW with GSP, sure you can throw someone in there with them but they have very little chance. At MW, you have 2 guys the champ has already beaten and a guy who's won one fight back (not saying he doesn't deserve the shot) but I do think Yushin Okami is being overlooked. At LHW, no one can stack up against Machida. Shogun's just going to have happen to him what happened to everyone else Lyoto has faced and I don't think there's anyone in that division who can really say they could beat Machida. But at HW, Shane could knock Brock out then Nog could submit either of them, then there would be a problem because I think JDS will be next contender after that and he could knock out Nog but they will never fight. Then you have Mir and Velasquez.

So what Im saying is, the HW division doesn't have the most talent but the difference in talent of the fighters is small. The difference between Lyoto and the rest is big, same story with BJ, GSP and AS. Talent-wise yeah the LHW is probably the best, but in terms of how many legit title contenders there will be for each champion in each division I think HW does win that. When you think about it, in the other divisions the real tough fights for each champion are the best fighter in the other divisions. BJ = GSP. GSP = BJ and AS. AS = GSP and Lyoto. Lyoto = AS and probably some HW's.

Okay, I have to take issue with this. I'm a big Machida fan and I love to watch him fight, but I think it's way too early to say "no one can stack up against" him. If he beats Shogun and gets two more big wins, I might agree that he has an aura of invincibility like Anderson or GSP. For now, he's got a number of good solid wins and just one truly impressive win over an elite fighter (Rashad).

I think Machida's the favourite over Shogun, and I'll be cheering for him, but that doesn't mean Shogun couldn't knock him on his ass.

OT: I think LHW and LW are equally interesting right now. I'm eager to see if Machida can be the champ that lasts at LHW. Some of the other divisions are deep too, but I suspect Lesnar vs Carwin is going to be anticlimactic.
