My question is who are your number 1 contenders for each title. Not Dana's/Joe Silva's number 1 contenders.

Heavyweight: Cain Velasquez
Light Heavyweight: Dan Henderson
Middleweight: Chris Weidman
Welterweight: Johny Hendricks
Lightweight: Anthony Pettis
Featherweight: Ricardo Lamas
Bantamweight: Michael McDonald
Flyweight: Chris Cariaso

Prettu good man, personally I have Overeem at HW. When it comes to contenders it's hard for me to place them due to all the crap that happens outside the cage; injuries, refusing fights, etc..
Guys I think should get a shot soon would be Gustaffson at LHW, and McDonald is a great pick too.

Light Heavyweight: Dan Henderson/Machida
Middleweight: Chris Weidman
Welterweight: Johny Hendricks
Lightweight: Nathan Diaz
Bantamweight: Renan Barao
Flyweight: John Dodson

i couldnt think of my featherweight pick so i left it out. i also picked dodson at FW because of the lack of numbers in the weightclass. i think dodson is probably a good pick for a title fight at this point.

lightweight is definitely gotta be diaz, he IS getting a title shot and he has been on a really good run for a while now.

LHW is either machida or hendo. if neither get a title shot soon then they need to fight.

HW is cain until overeem returns.

I'm not disagreeing by asking this but why does everyone think Cain is the number one contender? I guess the division isn't all that deep and if you don't give it to Cain or AO who else would be deserving or a challenge but on paper Cain was stopped by JDS in a minute and is on a 1-0 streak against Bigfoot who is no doubt a challenge but not a really a guy you beat and get a title shot for it. I would even understand if people think he just had an unlucky night against JDS and is more equally matched/ better than what he showed in that fight. Logically I would say Cain is the #2 or #3 HW but what happened to earning title shots. I thought fighters getting rematches almost immediately was a big pet peeve on here. Again I'm not disagreeing but personally I think he needs to win another fight, let him smash a can for all I care, its principal to me.

hw- cain
lhw- hendo
mw- weidman
ww- condit
lw- nate
fw- frankie
bw- barao
fw- winner of dodson & da silva.

of all those guys that i think can actually beat the current champs i pick cain...i think he can turn it around in the second fight and really grind dos santos down.

weidman and barao also have good chances
