No.5 Jake Shields

Shields returned to the welterweight division and won a controversial split decision against Martin Kampmann. With his 15-fight win streak, we put Shields in at the five spot in the division.

No.4 Josh Koscheck

After coaching the latest season of TUF against GSP, Koscheck faced St-Pierre for the second time and lost to a decision for the title at UFC 124 this December. Koscheck earned a title shot with wins over Frank Trigg, Anthony Johnson, and Paul Daley.

No.3 Thiago “Pitbull” Alves

In a battle of the Number 2 and Number 3 guys, Alves lost a decision to Jon Fitch. He returned with a win over John Howard at UFC 124 this December.

No.2 Jon Fitch

Fitch may go down in history as the best fighter to never win a title. He’s 13-1 in the UFC and often listed on top 10 pound-for-pound rankings.

No.1 Georges “Rush” St-Pierre

GSP is undoubtedly the king of the Welterweight division. St-Pierre defended his fifth title fight against Josh Koscheck at UFC 124 and won by a decision. So now we have to wonder what will happen next? Will GSP face Jake Shields, BJ Penn, or Jon Fitch next? We will just have to sit back and wait.
