So I tried to find this topic but was surprised not to. Even more surprising? UFC has never had a Brazilian WW champion like ever. Some might say that with USADA doing their thing, that stat will remain but sooner or later I think we will see a Brazilian finally lift it at 170. Bellator has theirs after all. So with Gilbert Burns’ big but unsurprising win this past event, it goes without saying he looks good. Championship-caliber good? Who knows. But he might do it, as might RDA who came within touching distance, and although we might not see Demian Maia pull a Bisping and win it late, he hasn’t retired yet. Then of course we have the up-and-comers and the journeymen who haven’t climbed the ranks but can still win fights, Cowboy Oliveira style. Obviously fighters like him are a gargantuan stretch but for the sake of competition, who ya got?

Once Chuckie Olives strangles Khabib and takes his title, he'll probably do the same to Usman.

Yes. Chuckie Olives and Lord Costa are the only people worth watching at this point.

I really like the idea of Khabib vs Oliveira.

None of them will be a champ but if (big if) that happens then I will say Elizeu

 

I expected him to roll against the old Russian -?
