UFC bantamweight division is extremely stacked than it has ever been. With champ Dillashaw’s rivalry against former teammate Cody Garbrandt finally coming to an end, opens up the gate for many interesting match ups.

The first contender to knock the door was former UFC bantamweight champ Dominick ‘The Dominator’ Cruz. Cruz believes he deserves the title shot and even Dillashaw would get a chance to avenge his earlier loss against Cruz. Cruz has been sidelined due to injuries and hasn’t fought since December 2016 after losing his title to Garbrandt at UFC 207.

However two more contenders have established a strong case for themselves for the title shot in #3 ranked Marlon Moraes and #4 ranked Rafael Assuncao. (via Twitter):

Moraes, a former WSOF bantamweight champ, is 3-1 in the UFC with a decision victory over former two-time flyweight title challenger John Dodson and two first round finishes of Aljamain Sterling and Jimmie Rivera. However, the only loss he sustained was a razor thin split decision against Rafael Assuncao. Assancao thus believes he should get the title shot. (via Twitter):
