To make an accurate comparison there will need to be more fighters & the lighter divisions will need to be as stacked & deep as the heavier divisions where there are tons of good fighters?

Its not a good comparison as the lighter divisions are newer & not as developed?
obviously it can still use numbers from each weight division without being impeded by the late start of the lighter weights, but its a bit disingenuous.
