Hardest weight class in the UFC?
By hardest I mean, which weight class do you believe is the hardest to fight in due to the talent.

For example personally I don't find anything under LW particularly stacked in terms of talent. For me I'd have to go LHW with HW being a close second.

What do you all think?

Welterweight, Top Ten slots in LHW and HW can come by default, MW you get one win and you can be in the top five. Welterweight the top ten is insanely competitive with guys that have been there for years and most of those fights are close.

I'd have to go with lightweight.

I'd go with Welterweight.

GSP, Condit, Diaz, Fitch, Kos, Hendricks, McDonald, Maia...

WW or LW.

WW for sure. Most divs have some good talent, but compare the 5-10th ranked fighters at WW to most of the other divs, and you see how much better it is right away.

LW for me. That division is literally stacked from top 20 and up.

LW is pretty damn stacked and there are still some top 10 and top 20 guys who are not with the UFC yet.

The wider the base, the taller the peak. LW and WW have the largest talent-pools, and therefore the most elite competitors.

MW has a one of a kind freak of nature at the top, but behind him it gets pretty shallow.

Between Cruz, Barao, Faber, Bowles, Mayday, Wineland, Pickett, and Jorgensen, I don't think I've seen a bad fight from any of them and match them all up and it's gonna be a hell of a fight, even though Bowles has vanished off the face of the earth since the Faber mauling.

The most competitive weight class by far, was even better when they had Mighty Mouse, Benavidez, and Torres.
