LW - Top Contenders: Kenflo, diego, maynard, edgar, griffen
Like many others have said, I'm also on the kenflo bandwagon simply because he is the most well balanced and technical fighter of the bunch. Watching diego throw 1 2's and left kick against bj does not convince me that he will beat kenflo. Kenflo lost to bj because of a bad gameplan, diego lost because he was outclassed. With that said, I'm also impressed (and bored) by maynard. He has some great footwork with heavy hands. He is still the best wrestler in the division. I think a maynard kenflo fight would be very competitive with kenflo having a slight advantage because of his elusiveness and striking technique.
WW - top contenders: fitch, alves, kos, hardy, daley.
I can't see kos beating alves, or him fighting fitch. I can't see hardy beating kos, fitch or alves. Daley is not ready yet. Can fitch beat alves again? I think alves will beat him although I do think at some point fitch will take him down, but he will not keep him down. I think Alves will not be so tentative with his leg kicks compared to his gsp bout and he will out point fitch on the feet.
MW- contenders: nate, maia, belfort, johnny cash
maia is not a complete fighter yet, although i do see him beating beltcher. It will come down to nate belfort bout and i see nate using his superior strength and ground game to beat a very dangerous belfort
