[QUOTE=bbjd7;668969]Miller's career hasn't taken off yet but he is an amazing talent. And Baron has been fighting overseas which is the main reason why he isn't as well known as Leben and Bisping.

They also fight in a divison that has a ton more talent then MW.[/QUOTE

Well I cant really agree that the LW division is more talented. Sure they have some exciting fights. That is simply because little guys are quick with lots of stamina. The fights are so close in that divison because neither opponent can hurt the other. So we see these mad scrambles and two little guys beating each other up. There are some very talented guys. The middle weight class has Anderson Silva, Dan Henderson, Rich Franklin, Paulo Filho, Nate Marquardt and Okami. There are alot of talented guys in the Middle Weight. I think top ten in any division is just as talent stacked as the other. Plus those LWs arent on anyones top ten, exept maybe yours....

The LW divison has I would say 30 fighters who could all be considered top 10 guys talent wise.

MW isn't even close to that.

Internationally and in the UFC the LW divison is much deeper then the MW divison.

You are sick with this talent stuff. Talent is what you start with. That doesnt make you become a top ten fighter. Talent mixed with heart, stamina, power, hard work, and dedication is what makes you a top ten level fighter. Talent isnt everything. And how there are only 10 alowed in a top ten. So how do you figure there are 30 LWs who could be considered top 10. Frankly all that matters to me are wins. Every wieght class is tough. It is difficult to be in the top ten in any wieght class. I simply enjoy the ranked fighters better. I love all fights, but the ones that are between ranked fighters seem to have more at stake..

There are about 30 different fighters who depending on matchups could move into the top 10.

I mean guys like Frankie Edgar aren't top 10 but they are good enough to be.

The MW divison has a few guys like that but nowhere near the LW's depth.

The LW divisons depth is 10x then what the MW divison has.

I think bbjd is right here.

Even though I wouldn't use Frankie Edgar as an example. His fight with Maynard kinda showed that he's a bit small compaired to the bigger guys at 155lbs, there are alot of tough wrestlers there and that is Frankie's strength, the fact that they are bigger than him puts him at a big disadvantage. I think 145 would be great for Edgar. I'm really looking forward to his fight with Matt Wiman.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

ok man that is why the guy who couldnt beat the top 2 guys in the WW moved down to LW and he has dominated everyone. Wow the are so talented in the LW.... And if the WW guy moved to MM they would have some trouble..... They arent more talented, they are just more action packed. and full of mostly close decision fights....

Frankie has wins over Franca, Fisher, and Griffin he can defiantly compete at LW.

Gray is a horrible match up for Frankie because he is one of the few guys who is both a wrestler and bigger than Edgar.

There is clearly more depth at LW. They have more guys who have top level skill then any other divison.

Give me anyone in the LW and I will show you a fighter in MW who is just as "talented". You are listening to Joe Rogan too much. He used to say all of that to promote the LW. Every weight is tough....
