Before it looked like the MW division of the UFC was kind of dry but now the talent seems to be stacking up. I dont think anderson is going to be able to hold his title for to long because the competition is starting to get tougher and tougher. Right now theres Nathan Marquardt - former king of pancrase and he lost to anderson but hes still a game competitor. Thales Leites - Managed to beat Marquardt and has been on a five fight win streak in the ufc he only has one loss in his career as well. Chael Sonnen - hes a tough guy and he recently beat the crap out of paulo. He has a few losses but has only lost to big name guys like paulo, sobral and jeremy horn. I think he is going to be a force and is a definate contender in the mw division especially after beating filho. Denis Kang - hes a tough guy and a lot of people have him ranked in the top 10 I think he is another good contender and should get a title shot if he can string some wins together. Okami - he has a great record at 23 - 4, has won his last three fights, and since he has been in the UFC he has only lost one fight. That fight being to rich franklin who was on top of the division before anderson came around. He's definately the number one contender for the title. Michael Bisping - UFC's English poster boy, he is bassically getting built up like a lot of other fighters did but even then hes 17 - 1 and really marketable. He just recently beat leben and charles mcarthy so he does have some credibility now a days. Hes eventually going to be given a title shot but I dont think it will be any time soon. They are going to milk him for all hes worth ala diego sanchez and when he is ready for it or they have no other contenders they will throw him a title shot. Wandy - hugely marketable fighter and now that hes in the mw division he could easily get a title shot if he can put some wins together. I would love to see him fight anderson silva. Dan Henderson - one of the best fighters to come out at pride. He had a really good fight with rampage, beat pahlares who is a very dangerous and explosive grappler and is coming back up to 205. I can see him challenging again for the MW title in the future but theres a long line now a days.
