Jamie Varner for sure!
even if dont like him much as a person his stand up is sharp as hell!
Bowles and Torres wont beat Dominick Cruz
and Faber is done as Champion , he will become the Rich Franklin of the WEC!
It's a little ridiculous to write off the two most dominant champs in WEC history that quickly. Faber already has a win against Cruz, and Torres looked unbeatable for so long. I could easily see either one of those guys dethroning Cruz... if he gets past Benavidez. Varner is one of the top 4 guys in the WEC at 155, but he has to get past Cerrone before he gets a title shot. It wasn't exactly easy last time, and he couldn't beat Shalarous or Henderson.
I said Jamie Varner too, I don't see Torres getting back into title contention until he's had a few more fights, Faber is moving down to bantamweight and may have a better chance at winning that title than Torres, no way in hell Mike Brown is getting a shot anytime soon, and Brian Bowles is kind of the forgotten champion out of the bunch.
torres will get his belt back
urijah at 135
I completely agree Urijah will dominate that division. Nobody in that division could do as good as Urijah against Aldo.
nobody in ALdo's division. that kid is not going down for a long long time
I think actually think Aldo's biggest competition just went down a weight class. I actually wish Urijah stayed in that weight class even though he was small. He is the only one I see standing a chance. If he worked on avoiding the leg kicks which he never thought would be so damaging so early he may have a chance since in the first round things looked fine for him. He even won a few exchanges in the first and part way in the second. I think he gave up because of size issues with Aldo and the reach advantage.
For some reason I think Mike Brown. I just like the guy. I know I know Aldo's a beast but..... can't explain it. Hopefully he won't go down mentally like Rich did when he fought Anderson.
I think faber is gonna do well at 135 and take the title. Its amazing how after a few loses he gets written off. His entire career has been dominate up until now. Funny how that works.
I think people are not liking him anymore but I actually see him claening up 135. If he can hold on with Aldo these guys will be chopped down one after the other.
Good point...people are so quick to jump the boat anymore with fighters.
