Penn to LW
Leben to WW (good call)
Sera to LW for sure
Vera needs to drop to LHW

Bisping needs to feel out his weightclass but I think MW would be good for him.
Sanchez needs to stay right where is is until proven otherwise
Franklin needs to stay MW until he gains the belt back

serra - 155
bj - 155 (stays there)
riggs - 185 (just because i think 170 is way too deep for him atm)
randy - 205


brandon vera.....contract disputes aside....looks like he might be able to cut to 205....and i think that would be interesting




anybody here think tito could make 185?

No... I think Tito's got to cut weight to make 205... And he looks like he's huge for LHW... 185 would just be too much of a stretch, IMO

But I think I get what you're saying... He more than likely won't get a chance to fight Chuck for the belt again, so maybe he should explore his career options.

I think both the 185 and 170 are seriously deep at the moment and Riggs I don't think is capable of contention in either.

i know he looks huge now...but looking back at some of his earlier fights (against frank shamrock comes to mind) and he looked a lot lighter then.....i dont think it would be a stretch, and i think he would have a lot more success (as far as a push for the belt goes) at 185

i see riggs being able to compete with leben/macdonald/lutter a lot better than with sanchez/hughes/etc. and he has fought at higher weight classes before......i just think he could be top 10 at 185 in the UFC, where its really hard even breaking into that at 170 with the way the UFC division stacks up right now...but consistency is his problem right now, no matter where he fights at.

Penn to lightweight were he can dominate

Leban to Welterweight



My choices exactly,

Leben is way to small to be a champion middle wieght. I think he could make a splash as welterwieght but GSP would still dummy him
