    yeah with all the fighters and the skill lvl being this high the 205lb class is easily the best and most talented division in the world followed by the welterweight division.

    yo chuck is still one of the top fiters on the planet he will bounce back maybe not win the title but knock some more ppl out and give the fans what they want KO's and he starts with wandy!!! Arona is not a top 5 fiter he is overrated and UFC made a big mistake not signing Sokoudju he is a very good fiter who is powerful quick agile and would be a huge fanbased fighter once the U.S. fans got to see him fite

    Shogun has a jujitsu and mental advantage that will shake up the division. Dont count this guy out, he is dangerous.
