Things are getting interesting again in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight division.

You can thank last weekend's UFC on FX 8 event for that. Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil, is where Vitor Belfort proved he was still one of the most dangerous 185-pounders in the world, not long after Ronaldo Souza did likewise with his strangulation over Chris Camozzi.

We know they're bad mofos ... but how do they stack up against the rest of the division?

Don't hurt your brain trying to figure it out when you can just call on Team SB Nation, comprised of and its ugly stepsisters, Bloody Elbow and MMA Fighting. Together, we can change this world for the better. Well, maybe not, but at least we can decide on who the best middleweights are in all of mixed martial arts (MMA).

See for yourself.
