frankie edgar has to be in the title picture too with a win over griffin.
when he beats fisher i think he should fight the loser of bj and joe because bj only has one win since his comeback i dont think he should get a title shot already especially since hes lost twice once stopped and the guy he beat IMO would get decimated by any of te top lightweights in the ufc right now.
people way overestimate bj he hasnt ever beaten any good fighters
as far as sevenson goes he has beaten some tough guysbut he lost to josh neer so i think he should have to fight a legit contender

but overall i think all of these fights should happen and the two top guys in the end should go at it
the winner of that should fight sherk because his suspension will be over by then

I don't think that's a very fair statement. BJ is a tough guy, and his losses have come from tough guys. Up until the third round against Hughes I thought he had it.

I got BJ vs. Joe Stevenson- Vacant Lightweight title

Fisher vs. Edgar- #1 contenders match
Florian vs. Tyson Griffin
Guida vs. Huerta(Even I rather see Nate Diaz vs Guida)
Nate Diaz vs. Thiago Tarvaras(or Cole Miller)

The winners keep moving up the title chain...

I see it more like

Stevenson vs. Florian for vacant title.
Huerta vs. Penn for #1 contender on the same card
then T. Griffin vs. Edgar, Fisher or Guida for #2 spot.

i would say Stevenson Vs Penn

Then under them

Fisher Vs Edgar
Florian Vs Griffin

i think if bj can continue to make 155-156 he will be able to beat anyone in that division

bj beat the wrestler version of hughes
uno just got whooped on by some one ive never heard of
din thomas made a mistake and got caught
anyone can beat a gracie if u can keep them on defense and not let them move
and gomi doesnt impress me either

intelligent well thought out post, obviously youre a huge fan of the sport

penn/stevenson wil be for the belt im guessing(almost no one wins drug appeal cases sorry sherk) and edgar, huerta, griffin, kenflo, fisher, and even nate are all coming off wins crowding things even more with diego(maybe), tavares, and aurellio all still close. now more than ever it would really be nice to see a pride style tourney for the first unified pride and ufc event in japan. wishful thinking i guess.
