Garcia is my number one.. but I honestly think h2h Lucas might beat him.... I see Garcia beating Judah than getting a rematch fight with Khan.. before the Lucas fight can go down...

Judah beat Matthyese FTR....

Tough one to pick. Everything Garcia does Lucas does better. I think we've yet to see the best of Garcia though,id put my money on him.

Him and Lucas bound to happen though.
I fail to see how beating Judah means anything at this stage.

The guy is beyond a joke

Because Judah still can whoop half of them kids at 140. Even though at this stage Judah is just a gatekeeper,I think he's a good test to see where a guy is at.

I'd say Garcia deserves his no.1 ranking at the moment, but H2H Lucas gives him a beat down.

I wouldn't be too surprised if he were to beat Marquez even (if that fight were made, for whatever reason. It wouldn't be my pick, but that's a bit of a tough fight to call).

I think he gets Garcia outta there.

Rios has the chin but his defense is just.. ugh.

You're right about Peterson.

Rios and Peterson are the one's I want to see. Rios would be a war. Also Maidana if he ever decided to go back to 140

Garcia seems a pretty sturdy dude. Holt whacked him good a few times and he took the shots fine. I'd expect him to make it to the end, but lose most of the exchanges and generally get outworked. Lucas probably beats Rios up pretty badly, but yeah, freaky chin. Peterson can be hurt, but he's a survivor and very good on the inside. That'd be an excellent fight.

I'd say Bradley beats him pretty clear, but Matthysse stays competitive the whole way through and has some really nice moments every once in a while.

Rios is irrelevant at 140lbs. GBP owns the JrWW division and Rios only options there are a rematch with Alvarado and a fight with Pac. (Which will happen according to Scumbag Arum)

Matthysse vs Garcia should be done to decide to is the man at 140lbs!!!
