    I’m all for letting Anderson jump the line. His time in MMA is short. He was one of the most dominant champions in history and arguably the GOAT. If he can beat Israel he is more than relevant, he is a contender. Why not give him and the fans a chance at a story book ending? Rockhold and Romero are moving up in weightclass. Weismann just lost to Jacare, who is 2-2 in his last 4 with those losses coming to the two guys fighting for the title on Saturday. Not only would I like to see this, but an argument can be made that it makes sense....which is rare for UFC title pictures.

    Stylebender is amazing and will be the face of the sport soon. However, I would love to see Andy shut the lights out and get that belt one last time.

    He'll change his mind if the fights a boring decision. This is why the tournament format is best.

    I don’t think he will. That’s why I said it would be a story book ending for him. My comments were about what happens “if” he beat Adesanya

    I’m not saying it is justified, but when you take into account beating Israel would probably move him into the top half of the rankings and you consider his body of work, as well as WME’s practice of putting on the biggest fights over the most deserving fights, who from above him on this list would you give the next title shot to?

    Souza if gastelum wins, but if Whittaker defends it would be a rematch

    Edit: shit I forgot they just fought and kelvin got a split decision

    I guess rockhold wouldn't be horrible if Whittaker beats gastellum, but he's 1-2 in his last 3 fights and coming off a loss.

    I'm excited to see adesanya get a crack at it, but REALLY don't want to see Silva lose again :(

    israel is overrated, needs to be humbled soon, and couldn't dominate old silva. silva has already been humbled, and still needs to get beat up more lol
