    Anyone else impressed with the FW division?

    It really has been fantastic, and my favourite to watch. Big names going there, and fighters getting built there. You've got like four guys that could be fighting for the belt at this point. A lot of the fights are exciting.

    Aldo
    Edgar
    Pettis
    Guida
    Siver
    Swanson
    Lamas
    Lentz
    Mendes
    Jung
    Hioki
    Elkins
    Manny
    Yahya
    McGregor
    Dias
    Akira
    Brown
    Poirier
    Ogle
    Peraltra
    Bart
    Yagin
    Oliveria
    Diego
    Siler
    Miller
    Koch
    Phan
    Hettes
    Hirota
    Brimage
    Bermudez
    Holloway
    Garcia
    Lawrence
    Pineda
    Brookins?
    Grice
    Jason
    Blanco

    So much depth. So much potential power. So much talent. You've got top prospects (McGregor, Hettes, Lawrence, Bermudez, Diego, Holloway, Jason), come back stories (Swanson, Akira, Lentz), exciting fighters (Garcia, Brimage, Phan), top contenders (Edgar, Jung, Lamas, Swanson, Siver, Pettis, Mendes) and a dominant champ. That's not even including Koch, Poirier, and Guida.

    Best division ATM IMO. The FW should be getting more attention than the LW division.

    I left a bunch of UFC fighters off too. Don't forget, this is just the UFC. You've also got Curran, Kawajiri, Straus, and so much more.

    You're missing Brandao.

    I simply put him in as Diego.

    I'd personally love to see a FW tournament, Internationally for a title shot.

    Conor McGregor - Ireland
    Dennis Siver - Germany
    Chad Mendes - United States
    Hatsu Hioki - Japan
    Chan Sung Jung - South Korea
    Diego Brandao - Brazil
    Akira Corassani - Sweden

    Set up a wildcard after the Edgar/Olvieria, Lamas/Jung, and possibly Siver/Swanson fights. This likely has Jung, and Siver out, but you can do something with Brazil, Japan, United States and Ireland above.

    Some of the best fights in any prize fighting sport come from the little guys. It's unfortunate that outside of serious fans, they don't get more attention.

    Whats funny is that really nobody is even near Aldo's level. Maybe somebody may step up but doubt it...Pettis vs Aldo may be the only time we may see Aldo lose in a long time...

    Jose winning makes things interesting IMO. He's moving up. Lamas/Jung winner vs Siver/Swanson winner, though I bet they go to Edgar.

    I'm talking winners. Edgar is going to kill him.
