Favorite division as of this moment?

My favorite division at the moment, is lightweight. The division is tough, and so stacked! We have Cerrone, Pettis, Edgar, Maynard, and all those guys at the top, while we have guys who are just now getting exposure; Dos Anjos, and Michael Johnson, just to name a couple. I mostly like this division because of all the exciting fighters. The division has Guillard, Lauzon, Varner, Diaz, and plenty more!

What division do you guys prefer in the UFC?

The lightweight division is insane the level of talent is far higher and they always have a full gas tank, it is the best of all the worlds rolled into one. When you look at the skill and talent level of guys who aren't even in the title discussion its crazy.

I like the WW division a lot right now. One of the best champions. Condit has the interim belt. Hendricks, Ellenberer and Kampmann are all pushing for a shot. Still have Fitch and Kos hanging around. Then you have people like Rory and Silva on the way up. Maia just dropped down. Just a fun division right now.

I picked WW. Since GSP has been out a new crop of WWs have emerged and will have their shot at the title. The division is deep with the likes of Erik Silva, Rory, Ellenberger, Alves, Kos, Fitch, Maia, Condit, Diaz (if he comes back), Kampman, Fitch, BJ, Hathaway, Swick.

They've pushed a talented relentless fighter in Diego Sanchez back to LW.

This division is stacked.

I still love the LW division the most

And I have a soft spot for the Flyweight division as well, great little tournament they started out with and they've signed a few great fighters (One of them being Jussier da Silva) so it will be very interesting to see how it plays out once the tournament is over

I like how each division has it's own feel.

Flyweight is still emerging with legit contenders

Light Heavyweight is full of veteran status fighters, so we can still enjoy their fights while they're still here. The division isn't getting completely washed out with new talent.

This topic intrigues me, because there are so many different ways you can look at each weightclass, and the concepts that they hold.

155 easy.


Ridiculous top 5 (not even including Edgar or BJ, who may be better than all of them). Choosing the best is almost a matter of taste, because they are all elite talents.

Then 6-20 is much deeper and more talented than any other division.

I'll go with welterweight. Lightweight is very deep with solid, good fighters but there isn't a single amazing fighter or dominant force like GSP/Anderson/Bones/Aldo/JDS. There's like 5 people who could easily be champs and there's too much uncertainty for my taste. WW has good depth along with better top-end talent.
