What in the world is going on with the UFC middleweight division?

January 13, 2016 5:30 pm by Joe JD David

If there was a better time for a middleweight in the UFC to have a break-through year to get into the top five, this would be it. The middleweight top 10 is a brutal bunch of battled-tested warriors.

Who from the bottom half of the division will rise to the ranks and take a crack at the title?

Here is a look at the current top ten middleweights standings:

Champion : Luke Rockhold
1 Chris Weidman
2 Yoel Romero **
3 Jacare Souza
4 Vitor Belfort
5 Lyoto Machida
6 Tim Kennedy
7 Michael Bisping
8 Robert Whittaker
9 Gegard Mousasi
10 Thales Leites

** possible suspension

Will ‘Jacare’ Souza emerge as the next challenger to the title after a Weidman vs Rockhold 2 rematch?
