Hmm, I dont mind the idea, I just fear that if they completely cut out the heavier divisions it might effect the ratings. The guys in the lighter divisions are harder to market than the bigger guys and I hope this doesn't become the beginning of the WEC downfall.

With Zuffa running it I doubt it will be, but it does concern me a little.

Sonnon already faltered in the UFC, and doesn't look to have improved his skillset all that much. That's why im not all that excited to see Filho...i think he's overrated.

Meh, who knows....could be interesting when it happens i spose.

I've seen some of your posts about how you hate him but how can a division with 9 top ten fighters in the world be a joke even if it has Rhino Marshall?

My concern is WEC Champs fight about every 3 to 4 months, UFC Champs about 4 to 8

This is acually really good for the WEC
it legitamizes it as not a lesser legue, but an equal legue with just smaller weight classes
like how golberg said it, "ufc for the smaller guys"

Chael Sonnen must be some kind of super human, defeating dudes he hasn't even faced yet.

If Doug Marshall ever comes to the UFC, then I will sport a Paulo Filho sig.

I gotta spread the love again first or I would have repped you for beating me to the punch. This is exactly the problem with a merger of the two. The UFC doesn't have enough events in the year to keep their current roster active, hell they even started cutting down their roster by 25% earlier this year, much less add entire divisions. I'd like to see them merge overlapping divisions and move the singular divisions, so for example merge LW, WW and MW, then give 3 of the six divisions to each org. So for example the UFC gets HW, MW, and LW while WEC gets LHW, WW, and FW. OR, the two can open up their fighters to cross promotion fights between the two. Either of those scenarios would be okay with me.

The UFC should go back to the old school way they had with just HW, LHW, MW and WW. They can keep LW, FW and BW in the WEC. Then again I never really cared for the smaller divisions so I'm biased.
