Unless you just don't like the smaller weight classes. (Which a lot of people here don't)

I was very biased towards the lower weight classes when they were first introduced. I did not watch WEC. I think I chose the wrong word, as I truly have come to respect the skill these fighters have. I should not have called him average. The problem is that those weight classes are not very established in the UFC so the history is not there for me. "Average" popularity, I suppose.

I was exaggerating in my post; I do know who he is. However, due to my lack of WEC exposure and aforementioned bias towards the little dudes, I couldn't remember why I knew him.

How is that the biggest UFC event ever? It had two championship matches, but one was a WEC crossover debut, so anyone who doesn't follow WEC didn't care, and the other was GSP in a fight that anyone with a clue knew he was going to dominate. From my perspective, as someone who was admittedly biased towards the lighter weight classes when they were introduced, these were two nobodies fighting in Mark and Jose. It was an awesome fight, but it's the only thing I ever remember Mark doing, and he lost.

I think he will be back in time, seems like that team has taken it hard since the passing of Shawn Tompkins and has really struggled to find there groove. Not sure who took over for Shawn but I think its obvious from the perfomances that he is not hitting the mark with guys like Stout,Horodecki and Hominick who have appeared to lack the edge they need.
