Gray Maynard is way more deserving of a title-shot than Melendez or Alvarez. So that's 4. 5 when you consider the consensus on the robberies against Frankie Edgar.

That's 4 or 5 possible contenders. More than any other division.

FLW: Moraga
BW: Wineland, Faber (both picks are being generous)
FW: Jung, Mendes, Swanson/Siver
WW: Hendricks
MW: Weidman, Bisping if he defeats Belfort
LHW: Henderson (if he defeats Machida), Gustaffson
HW: Overeem (Silva), Cormier, Werdum

So, again, if any division needed a tournament -- it's 155lbs. Regardless of contenders -- it's still the top division overall.
