this looks like a pretty tough cast, after the last two seasons the ufc needs a stacked season.

early faves:

lhw- texiera and bader

lw- mckay and duarte

I'm pretty sure it's Escudero that Dana has been nutting his pants over as far as LW goes, but I'm not sure.

Ryan Bader has the wrestling credentials and the brutal striking to be a competitor, but I'm not sure if he'll win LHW. Glover Texeira is no joke and he's been around a bit.

Having two weight classes instead of one is a much better idea. The past few seasons, there's been a huge rift between the guys that had shots to win, and the guys that were only there because they needed numbers on the show.
