I know this is already being done in several other threads, but I thought it would be interesting to pull the logical arguments into one thread and add a vote.  I find it interesting as all 3 men have some kind of a case.

 

Romero

 

Pros - just smashed a former champion.  On a 9-1 streak at MW

Cons - only fought the champ last year, and lost without any controversy.  Missed weight in last outing

 

Weidman

 

Pros - Former champ who was originally due a rematch.  Only one of the 3 who hasn't already fought Whittaker

Cons - 1-3 in his last four.  Lost convincingly to one of the other contenders

 

Jacare

 

Pros - Has never fought for the UFC MW belt.  Arguably had the most convincing win of all 3 in last fight

Cons - lost convincingly to Whittaker when they fought.

 

The more I think about it, the more I don't see a clear cut no.1 contender and would favour a match between 2 of them to decide.  By a very narrow margin, I would favour Jacare v Weidman as I feel Romero had it in his own hands to already be the interim champ and put this question to bed.

 

Please vote using the poll, and respect the fact-based premise of this thread.

If it's not Borrachinha, then it's Israel Adesanya.

It was the anticipation of such comments that stopped me adding an "other" option, or a Michael Bisping option!

Wish I knew how long till Bobby is back. The way it's going there could be time for Romero vs winner of Jacare vs Weidman for a shot at Whittaker

They should have a #1 contender fight between Yoel and Jacare.

 

Weidman can rematch Rockhold, he should be nowhere near a title shot.

Has to be Yoel for me.

 

While both he and Jacare lost to Whittaker, Yoel was at least competitive. I don't know if Jacare was injured going in to it but he looked totally out classed against Rob.

 

Think Jacare needs one more impressive win before you can re-book those two.

 

Weidman can get back to a title shot for sure but snapping a three fight skid shouldn't warrant you a title shot.

You should never reward a fighter with a title fight on the back of a fight they failed to make weight for.

 

Due to this i dont think romero deserves it, Sure he beat luke but hes 1-1 in his last 2 and already lost to the champ.

 

 

Let jacare vs weidman crown a new contender. Its win win for the ufc, Gives them time to delay the whittaker fight and also allows them to create a new interim title bout or number 1 contender bout.

 

 

As for Rockhold i think he should probably hang them gloves up. He got kod by bisping, thats when you know its time to hang em up.

 

If he moves up to LHW he will have some success, but guys hit hard at lhw and rockholds chin wont hold out.

Romero after he beats Weidman or Jacare.

 

At this point, he can just fight for the belt based on being a draw.

Wait.. who is a draw?

I'm saying at this point it really just depends on who people want to see more, that will likely be the person who gets the shot lmao
