^ No technicalities. The number one fighter in the world would win this. And I am not really in the mood to post an essay so in plain words....The Old UFC's are fun to watch and all, but at that time it was a one dimensional fighter vs another one dimesional fighter, so weight wasn't much a factor, but rather the more skilled and the better displine. Now, with well roundedness, weightclasses are HUGE. If you don't believe me, watch the Pride OWGP of last year.
