It always sucks when someone at the top of the division changes wait classes because they cant beat the champion. They measure out the division. For instance, lets say before jon fitch lost to hendrick, he moved up to MW. People would still be saying he's the #2 WW and that "blah and blah couldnt even beat fitch let alone gsp".
It's never good to lose a top 5 fighter in any division just because they cant beat the champion, just look at the LW division. Florian left, sanchez left, bj left, who's to say those 3 plus maynard, pettis, bendo, and frankie arent the top 7? We saw guillard go to the top, cerrone go to the top, miller go to the top, siver go to the top, guida go to the top, and diaz go to the top because of all of them leaving. But honestly, i think any of those fighters would lose to bj, florian, or sanchez. Well maybe BJ would lose to diaz but still. It screws us fans on knowing who's the best in each division.
BUT, i do understand why fighters do it. Some of them want the strap around their waste and if they cant get it done at one division, they try to in another.
