It's so interesting how if you don't like 135 lbs and below fights you 'aren't a real fan' but if you dismiss heavyweights as garbage fighters, you're just being realistic.

While 135 lbs fighters tend to have no power, 265 lbs fighters tend to have bad cardio. It just comes with the territory.

And I thought the fights on the HW seasons we've had so far were easily on par with any other season.

The real reason is there are so few HWs (due to the fact, unlike lighter fighters, they actually have other career paths open to them) that if you are good enough for TUF, you're good enough for the UFC anyway. No need for the extended tryout since you aren't competing with as many guys.

There are literally millions of little 135 lbs guys trying to be MMA fighters, just go to any liquor store on a Friday night and you'll meet 100 of them. Heavy guys tend to be doing other, more profitable things than MMA... Like being garbage men.
