I think he'll be legitimately in the mix if he makes it past BJ. Two more after BJ if they're the right opponents would be fair IMO, one more if it was sellable seems likely for DW.

Either way, I think a lot of folks see him as super talented and with GSP talking about a longer reign at 170, it does seem inevitable.
