With aldo missing an entire year, a whole list of challengers has emerged. As of now, i would say korean zombie is the unofficial #1 contender, but his last fight was about 8 months ago meaning it would be a year, give or take before he would be able to challenge for the belt so it woukd be in his best interest to take another fight.
Also erik koch was already slated for a shot, but got injured and ricardo lamas defeated the number 2 ranked hatsu hioki so the winner of their fight on fox 6 will be in a good position.
The winner of swanson/siver will indeed be in a very good spot to make a claim for #1 contendership. I'd say moreso siver given his resume at 155 and the fact that cub has already lost to aldo in brutal fashion. If cub manages to stop siver, it'd be his third straight over noteworthy opponents so its conceivable that he could get a shot, but i think he'd need at least one more.
Also if clay guida beats hioki, based on name recognition and his resume at 155, he could easily get a shot with another win over a top featherweight.
