I personally used a method comparing the number of good and elite fighters in each division, and the comparative skill level of those fighters against other respective divisions. To finalize my opinion, I compared the skill level of the rest of the top 15 fighters in each division (generally the bottom half) to help tilt the scales where my division rankings were close.

#1 Lightweight
#2 Featherweight
#3 Welterweight
#4 Bantamweight
#5 Flyweight
#6 Women's Strawweight
#7 Middleweight
#8 Light Heavyweight
#9 Heavyweight
#10 Women's Bantamweight

What are your rankings? Feel free to elaborate.

Maybe the recent competitiveness at the top. As for thickest title contention (most fighters worthy of a title and capable of winning the belt or giving the best fight for it, either currently or in the near future), I would rank it like this...

#1 Lightweight
#2 Welterweight
#3 Middleweight
#4 Heavyweight
#5 Women's Strawweight
#6 Featherweight
#7 Bantamweight
#8 Light Heavyweight
#9 Flyweight
#10 Women's Bantamweight



BTW, I was including Jones in the light heavyweight division in my original post.
