Don't know about champ but Belfort deserves the shot. There isn't a lot of contenders in the division right now.

Weidman vs Jacare= Best match up stylistically. Someone's either getting knocked out or submitted

Agreed 100%. While I do believe that the better fighter lost since Silva's showboating finally caught up with him, I am somewhat relieved to see some change at MW. I've always said that the criticism about MW being a weak weight class is unwarranted and that if you remove Silva that division is extremely competitive. Personally I really like Weidman vs Jacare. Great fight, and I'd say they are actually fairly even skill wise in most areas, though Jacare has the obvious BJJ edge. That said, Weidman's first defense should be against Belfort, who is a tough fight for anyone right now. Belfort has been a destroyer of worlds lately.

I think it's got to be Vitor, then get Jacare up for the next shot.

My first vote would go to Beltort with Spider Silva at a close #2. I have a feeling Silva is gonna take a little break.

I know Chael doesn't deserve any kind of shot, but I think Chael would honestly make short work of Weidman. I think Weidman is a great wrestler, but Chael is better (at least in mma).

Machida needs to start spitting shit in Japanese, Portuguese, or Samurai and go and take that belt. If Machida wins that belt before Silva we're probably talking about Machida being the greatest of all time, so give him his shot or give him Belfort or Sonnen.
