As fans and critics citing lack of talent and excitement may begin to come around as promotions take steps to revamp and resurrect the division. I’d like to take the time and analyse major promotions current middleweight fighters, as well as get into upcoming events that can (and most likely will) greatly alter the highly criticized division of 185 pound fighters.................
The Middleweight division is slowly starting to become one of my favourites. As I love me some good ole submission specialists, dudes like Maia, Almeida, and Jacare are really pulling my interest back into the weight class.
There seems to be so many exciting match-ups that can be made in the future, and last year it really didn't seem that way at all with Anderson destroying everyone.
I'm most looking forward to Almeida/Cote (big Almeida fan here), Hendo/Franklin (rumoured to be happening next), and I want to see Jacare take Dream's MW GP.
What are you guys thinking about the division nowadays?
