Then you get divisions like LW where the belt has changed hands often and it is often considered the deepest.
I don't think so. GSP has dominated 170 and I think that is one of the deepest and toughest divisions around. LHW is not as good as it has been in the past. Rampage fell off and left, Tito is no more, Rashad has not looked like his old self, Machida isn't the crazy puzzle he used to be, Forrest is done and Shogun is a shell of his former self.
