You make a good point by bringing up the other divisions though. I had no idea it was this bad. I remember back in the day when fighters had to have a good 3-4 wins to get a shot. Now you got guys like Edgar and Sonnen getting shots off of losses and in different divisions than their own.
Check out my quizzes those days never really happened, certainly not with any consistency. It changed my mind on a few things, mainly Dan Hardy and how his streak really didn't look that horrible when put in perspective.
Strikeforce is over in January, Diaz is coming back in February after a close and controversial loss to Condit who fought a close and enjoyable fight with GSP. Diaz and GSP also makes smart business sense and the UFC needs it's big draws what with the injuries and everything.
