Diego IMO is most definitely the best TUF fighter yet. But I really like Mike Swick and I have high hopes for Bisping.

Yeah it has got to be diego. No one else is rated top 10 since tuf. Let alont top 5 like him.
Although i think Swick and Rashad have done pretty dam good.
Bisping isn't there just cuz he hasnt had many fights yet. But i think he will make a big splash soon.

You have to give it to Diego Sanchez because Rashad Evans hasn't proved himself worthy yet with the people he has fought but Diego has and Swick is good but not ready. Griffin last fight was costly so no way Griffin now. So Diego despite having GSP as the Welter Champion

i don't know, i can't see Diego beating GSP at all. You got to think of which champion is most likely to lose his belt. I think the best chance will occur in th Lightweight division, so maybe Melvin or Stevenson. There are a lot of Light Heavyweight TUF'ers with potential, but they won't beat Chuck.

Agreed. I also think in 2 years or less Melvin, Koshcheck, and Burkman will be contender's.

IMO it's between three TUF's. Guillard, Stevenson, or Swick.

The LW division, is kinda iffy if you ask me. I believe Guillard and Stevenson both would have at least a 50/50 shot of defeating Sherk. Sherk is good, but I see them both right around the same talent level as him. I also think that they all hold advantages over each other in different aspects of the game. So it would be interesting.

Swick, IMO, is definatly someone to watch out for. He brings so much energy and unpredictability into the cage, it makes him really fun to watch. I think he matches up really well with both Franklin and Silva. All three of them have proven they are willing to stand and trade, and have ko power. Swick has dominated every single match that he has had in the UFC. He would definatly be the underdog against Silva, but I don't think it would really surprise anybody that much if he pulled off a win. Swick and Silva would be a very exciting fight, and considering I could make some good money with the odds in Silvas favor, I would actually put my money on Swick.

As far as Diego goes, I don't seeing him being the first guy from TUF to go on and become champ. Simply because GSP is the champ in his weight class. Out of all the champs in UFC right now, GSP IMO has the most staying power. I think he is the #1 WW in the world and he'll probably be there for a while. I'm not saying Diego doesn't have a chance because he is definatly a great fighter and a top contender. I'm just saying the three guys I picked have a better chance and it would be more likely for them to beat their current champs than for Diego to beat GSP.

Quarry had a ton of potential. IMO Diego wouldn't have won TUF if he were healthy. I think they fed him to Rich too quickly.

I forgot Jardine. If ramapge doesn't resign in time, he will probably fight Chuck next.
