    LW The king Fisher
    WW Lytle is a good one in this case (always brings 112% and you have to respect that)
    MW Quarry and Horn
    LHW Bonner, Schaffer (mabye still after his fight with Alexander, has gotten way better) and Irvin
    HW Obrian Herring and Coleman are the guys to beat to get a big name

    LW is Spencer Fisher.

    WW is Karo

    MW is full of them take your pick, the only contenders are Hendo and Nate, Bisping possibly in the future.

    LHW gonna go with Stephan Bonnar, hasn't been active recently but if you can't beat Bonnar your in the lower tier of the division. It was Tito but we all have to move on.

    HW is Heath. He may get a title shot at some point but I can't ever see him taking the strap.

    Rampage is not a step down in competition for Wandy. I know you're taking a jab at Chuck, but your statement loses credibility in the process.
    Your right Rampage isnt..or is he, we will see after the fight, right. And Forrest is in the list too, yes he beat Hector, but who cares.

    I got to thinking, the MW division is full of gatekeeper-level fighters (at least at this point in their respective careers), which is what makes it such a weak division in the UFC.

    You've got Herman, Belcher, Leben, Horn, McFedries, and even though he posted an impressive KO win in his last fight, Sakara.

    J-Mac is severely underrated. If he'd do nothing but work strikes and wrestling for a year, he'd have the potential to move up to contender status.

    It does seem that way! LOL.

    Chuck is the LW gatekeeper at this point it seems.
