Definitely man, honestly...the guy looked scary, precise, quick, and strong man. I can see the guy being a future MW Fedor like champ, he was so quiet and gracious looking.

What significance does that have? The UFC has very little HWs in general, and he's not a top 10 fighter by any stretch of the imagination.

Alright, calm down. The guy lost to Fabio Maldonado ffs. I think this was a case of an extremely unrefined striker spending too much time on the feet against a striker, then getting too much taken out of him before he could take him down. Besides, the guy through like 5 strikes a round and has questionable cardio, which would explain his low output. I expect him to do well, but Fedor-like is a hyperbole too strong even for the likes of Jon Jones.

I think Cain is going to be atop the HW division for a long time....JBJ will be LHW champion within 2 years.

Well, I don't know much about the guy, but from that fight I was impressed. Gerald Harris was on a 10 fight win streak bro, with all of them being finishes except one, 2 knockout of the knight honors...I mean, Harris is no chump. I'm just saying Falcoa looks really promising, and me and my friends are excited for his next fight. I really think he'll show us just how good he is then. Give'em Akiyama.

He'll beat a ton of guys in the UFC for the exact reason he beat Harris. Striking as a whole in MMA is very unrefined and just not very good or technical. He has that tremendous inherent advantage going into every fight, and if his takedown defense proves as stout as it was against Harris, he'll beat down a lot of guys. He's obviously very experienced and his striking is downright advanced, but he's still probably going to get beat up by better strikers like Silva and Belfort if he ever reaches that level.

Wow you are so right lol^^ I almost forgot about that. And he lost twice against him due to strikes.

Lets give him another fight before he gets a top 5 ;D

If he draws a fight with Mir and beats him he's in the top ten and in title contention. He's sadly closer to getting a title fight then Jon Jones.

Heavywieght ...............................Madsen/Schaub (They can engineer a title shot for either, but ATM Brock, Carwin and JDS are better, tough road blocks)

Light Heavyweight.........................Phil Davis...JBJ is right there to contend as well as anyone else in increasingly smaller crowded LHW pool. (JBJ is the best LHW right now IMO)

Middleweight..............................Falcoa I guess he tooled Harris, but didn't finish a finishable Harris. Really, I see veteran WWs/LHWs moving up and down once Silva is finished and JBJ takes a hold of LHW. (Parity throughout MW)

Welterweight.............................Rory McDonald (champion)

Lightweight...............................Evan Dunham or Jose Aldo (champion)

If Jon Jones drew a fight with Rampage he'd be in title contention. What's your point?

He's still a prospect. The only thing he's done is beaten Gonzaga.

He won't beat Mir barring some fluke though, I don't think.
