The lighter weight classes didnt even get that luxury when they were brought into the UFC, yet women do?
paper view lol

i don't think its a bad thing having a w division. might be a bad thing having it as ppv though I agree, stick it on a FX card or something to see how it goes or slide them down the card a little to get a Hendo v Machida main event.

Why are people so determined to see Henderson vs Machida a 5 round fight? It ain't getting out the 1st, machida will knock that slow ass out.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

If Anderson Silva can't KO him then I have my doubts that Lyoto can. He may rock him, but I really don't think we will see Hendo KO'ed in his lifetime.

And while I think Hendo was made to lose to Lyoto, I also have seen Hendo dominate people who should have had an easy time with him. My brain says Lyoto, my gut says Hendo.

Say it all you want, it doesn't matter. When people talk about great fighters his name is always mentioned along with his accomplishments. The man is a living legend who unlike other ones, apparently has expired yet.

Franklin big nog Fedor wanderlei shogun those are all guys he's beaten. Anderson doesn't have a list that impressive imo.

He's also fought Anderson shields and rampage.

This all while being a natural 185lb fighter. The guy is as legit as they come. Top five greatest ever without debate imho.

I'm assuming you are a MMA fan, otherwise you wouldn't be on this forum but to say you're not watching the whole card is a bit silly. I'm a MMA fan and I'll watch ANY mma I can find, Bellator, One FC even Bamma! I wouldn't miss the whole card because of one fight! If you truly don't want to watch the whole card then I'd describe you as a MMA observer rather than fan.

Some people just can't back slower less dynamic fighters. They love video game fighters who do crazy stuff. Hendo plods forward and KO's people with 1 hand. Same reason many can't stand the Diaz brothers and say they are overrated. They don't understand how a slower pitter patter style can work. Doesn't matter if it is highly effective. People these days care about flash and/or personalities.

"he doesn't have a chance against Fedor, he is too slow and Fedor has a huge ground advantage" 1st round KO for Hendo.

"he can't beat Shogun. he is too slow, Shogun has more ways to win" Hendo completely dominated Shogun for 3 of the "fresh" rounds. At that pace Hendo gassed. He owned Shogun when they were fresh.

"he can't beat Penn. Nick is too slow, and Penn will come right down the middle. Penn has the better ground game and wrestling. and hits harder!" Nick Diaz owned Penn for 75% of that fight. Owned like Penn has never been owned before on teh feet.

"he can't beat Cerrone. he is too slow and Cerrone has better stand up. Cerrone can also cancel out his Jitz. hell Cerrone could probably take Nate down if he wants!" Nate Diaz destroyed Cerrone. DESTROYED.

"I pick Jim Miller. Nate Diaz has no wrestling. Jim Miller has good BJJ. Miller wil take him down and stay out of subs all night" Nate Diaz gave him an ass whooping.
