This is the best thing that could have happened to the HW division
... IMO of course.
*I apologize if this seems like it could have been in one of the many Lesnar/Couture topics, but I'm commenting more so on The UFC's "weakest" division.
I personally think the UFC has made a brilliant move making the Lesnar/Couture fight.
With Mir and Nog coming off TUF, they will both have more recognition and bigger names than ever for the casual fan. Meanwhile you've got two of the biggest names in Lesnar and Couture locking up.
So in the end, if they're smart you've got. Two great wrestlers on one side, and two great BJJ guys on the other... and in the end, the two victors meet in the middle to decide the true undisputed champion.
This is the weight class that most people say is laughable, and while I totally understand the argument about why it shouldn't go down this way.. I think it's a brilliant move and will pay off big!
