I am under the opinion that people who don't enjoy watching the lighter weights aren't really true MMA fans, what does size have to do with anything? The lighter guys are most often the most technical. I'd also prefer a 5 round war than a 1st round KO for my Main/Co main.

...Huh? Not as interested? Seriously fellas?!? Look at the killers on the rise. The divisions are about to get tighter than that Brazilian Octagon Girl. (Well---that may be stretch. Her ass was the best I've ever seen grace the Octagon.) With the Strikeforce roster flooding the UFC gates this year--- Cormier, Barnett, Rockhold, Souza, ect. Let's not forget the new killers out there. Condit is right up there still brutally dangerous. Condit & MacDonald will be a crazy, sick fight. Rory is one scary dude at 170. How about Hendricks pulling off those crazy one punch dingers? Look at the UFC 158 card and say your not as interested?...It's only been getting better for me...

Why does everyone think that being less interested = thinking the fights suck or something

Although as I already mentioned, I do believe the judging system needs a lot of work, I have to agree with Bresk here. The 5 round technical wars are awesome to watch.

I'll be honest. I have zero interest in the 125lb division.

The judging definitely needs work, I would gladly be a judge for any athletic commission and I wouldn't screw things up. I'm glad we've got someone like Gene Lebell judging now, much better than guys like Cecil Peoples. In time it will improve, what bothers me though is that the athletic commissions never really seem to address the issue of poor judging.

It's like alcoholics 101, to change you must first admit you have a problem.

Rygu, that surprises me. Guys like Benavidez, Creepy and MM were doing well at BW, did you like them then?

That's what everyone online says. Yawn. There are PLENTY of people that really dislike the lighter classes. Maybe they are more casual and not "true MMA fans". So I guess you can say I'm not a true MMA fan. I have disliked everything under LW that has happened. I'm only interested in Aldo/Edgar and that's it. Otherwise I wish nothing below 155 existed. But I'm calling it how I see it.

That's fine dude, there's nothing wrong with being a casual fan. I just don't like it when people claim they are hardcore MMA fans yet they don't even want to watch the smaller guys. If anything the skill level is higher than the heavier weight classes.

Uncle Creepy is the only 125lb guy I can see myself cheering for. I certainly don't dislike the Flyweight division, it just doesn't get me hyped to watch the fights. I think part of it is that its a pretty shallow division, partially because its new to the UFC obviously. I love 135/145 very much though, so its not like I don't enjoy the smaller guys fighting.
