Hard to say because the UFC doesn't do an internal ranking system.

 

LW: I think Tyson and George are right up there near the top.

 

WW: Kampmann has had some problems of late. I'd say middle of the pack.

Daley and Paulo are right near the top and prob would be in contention for a title shot with one more win each.

 

MW: those guys are prob all pretty similar in their rankings. I would put Wanderlei above both atm, but Belcher is awesome. All three guys have been up and down.

 

LHW: Lil nog just burst onto the scene and with a win over Forrest will be facing top 5 guys most likely. Rich Franklin needs to get his feet wet at LHW but I think he will do well. Hammill and Vera are barely hanging on right now. T Silva is still ranked pretty high I think. He's a beast and I think he will make another run.

 

HW: Duffee and Cro Cop are on their way up I think. Rothwell needs to prove himself in the UFC still. Bad performance agaisnt Cain, but we see now that Cain is the real deal. Todd Duffee is an exciting prospect. Needs to work his way up. Struve is still pretty young but I think he will be dangerous as he get's more experience. The Nelson fight should be interesting.

 

Hope this helps. Just my feelings on each guys' place.

Griffin and Sotiropoulos are 'contenders' (in a division NOT ruled by BJ Penn), while the other two are gatekeepers.

 

Paulo Thiago is the only real contender out of that batch of WW's. The rest are around for excitement.

 

Belcher shows a lot of potential. Wanderlei is always a fan-friendly fighter, and Bisping is struggling to find his spot. Regardless, this division also has a dominant champion.

 

Hamill is a test for the up-and-comers, while Vera looks like he's destined to be a gatekeeper to the top of the division. Rogerio and Silva are definitely contenders in a very tight division. Rich Franklin seems to be struggling to find his place. Given that he's also mid-30's now, he might just be around for exciting fights.

 

Struve seems to be the only guy with a future in the HW division. Considering he's still so young, he's got a few years of adding some mass to that gargantuan body of his.

Daley has got NEGATIVE ground skills. He will be exposed as long as Koscheck fights smart.

And what's with all the Todd Duffee hype?

Well you dont really know he has got negative ground skills..Yes he did get submitted by jake shields but that was nearly 2 years ago and so it probably has improved.. Not saying he is going to destroy koscheck because he is excellent
