I kinda agree with you on the LHW but do you think Dana will give Soko a shot that quick? I don't see him handing a Pride guy who he had a tough time getting in a fight like that. For Gods sake he wouldn't give him Bisping.

I agree with all your picks. But aren't we all forgetting about Andrei Arlovski???

HW: We don't even know who the champ is much less the top contender. Assuming Couture will not fight again in the UFC, I would say Big Nog/Sylvia winner for the belt. Gabe Gonzaga for #1 contender.

LHW: If W. Silva beats Liddell, I would say Wanderlei. If Liddell wins, I say Jardine.

MW: Henderson

WW: Winner of Hughes/GSP.

LW: Winner of Penn/Stevenson.

At Heavyweight, it's a mess. If Randy really does pursue Fedor in favor of the UFC, then the one-two guys are Big Tim and Nogueira, who would fight for a title in the future.

At Light Heavyweight, it's anyone's guess, but Dana himself said last night that this distinction belongs to none other than The Ultimate Fighter season one winner Forrest Griffin.

Middleweight is pretty messed up at this point- we have no idea what's up with Okami, Kampmann just had knee surgury, Franklin has two KO losses to Franklin, Marquardt would need a few wins to earn his way back to that plateau. It's anyone's guess, but probably Okami.

Welterweight has somewhat of a reprieve in the interim title fight between the one and two contenders, Matt Hughes and GSP. However, #1 would have been Hughes because of everything The Ultimate Fighter 6 stood for.

Lightweight would have another exception with the Penn-Stevenson interim title fight, but if the rumors of Sean Sherk getting his title stripped are true, then he is obviously the number one contender.

HW: Nog vs Tim for the title - Kongo is next in line

LHW: Rampage vs Griffin - Machida or Wandy whoever wins their fight. If they both win give it to Machida, if they both lose...Rashad Evans gets it.

MW: Silva vs Hendo - I think Thiago is next in line possibly

WW: GSP vs Hughes - Serra gets winner

LW: Penn vs Stevenson - I think winner of Huerta/Florian should get the shot...but you could argue Edgar or Sherk since he never really lost it
