LW easily, hell you could honestly see anyone in the top 15 holding that belt by this time next year and that in itself is a statement.

welterweight is insanely stacked, they got a solid top 10, if not 15, a ridiculous and ever changing top 5 with guys who have been there for ages, and to top that, one of the greatest fighters to ever walk the planet holding the belt. (still ranking him at top 2 P4P with Silva, I'll be convinced by JJ once he goes through someone relentlessly assaulting his lead leg)

but welterweight is ridiculous, Fitch, Kos and GSP for the "old guard", Condit, Diaz, Kampman, Hendricks, McDonald, Ellenberger for the contender and potential contender list.

Then you get all the likes of Hardy, Maia, Akiyama (who went down to WW didn't he? is it official?), the occasional BJ and whatnot who you can never count out.

It has been stacked for years already, but during the last 2/3 years, it's sweating talent from all pores.

I'm going with welterweight, but LW is really stacked too. Weakest divisions are HW and Fw imo.

That could also mean the opposite, that there are no fighter that are really talented in LW. The question you should ask yourself before using that as your argument is how would Henderson, Melendez and Diaz do against GSP for example in a catchweight fight?

Or the ultimate question to ask yourself to decide which weightclass that is most stacked would be to ask yourself how would LW top10 for example do against WW top10 in catchweight fights and so on for every division.

I would say LHW, since the top10 is really stacked and Jon Jones are really talented and basicly got the perfect genetic conditions for the weight class.

You can't count out a division just because a guy like Jon Jones dominates it.

No, not really.

After Bendo, Maynard, Nate, Cowboy, and Pettis it's really not that great, there's some good fights that can be put on but guys like Melvin Guillard, Joe Lauzon, and especially Jim Miller, considering Ben, Nate, and Gray all mauled him are not capable of holding the title. That division has been overrated for quite some time and it's only got worse with Frankie leaving.

Welterweight is the most stacked. GSP has been dominant but fights at the top of that division not involving GSP are a coin flip.

I gotta go with Welterweight though lightweight and middleweight I'd say are about equally as hard.
