That has to do with size not skill level.

And it has nothing to do with Joe Rogan because the majority of the LW and MW talent are international.

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.
I didn't say he couldn't compete at LW, of course he can.

I just think 145 would be better for him, he's obviously a small LW....

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..

The LW division is really good, but the main problem is that the champ is just too good to beat right now. With the MW division, there are several interesting match-ups for Anderson Silva. I can only think of Florian (Who I think would get worked), Griffin (Who needs work before he even fights Penn) and Sherk in a rematch to face Penn at LW.

Still, look at the other LW's, you got guys like Baron, Gono, hardy, Stout, Clementi, Etim, maynard, Tavares, Pellegrino, Joe Daddy, Tibau, Edgar, Franca and many more. Freakin' solid, I tells ya.

Ok Shamrock-Ortiz I agree with that but it makes sense for him to stay at 155.

I agree Damone and that's just in the UFC. I would say 2/3's of the LW divsions top talent is outside of the UFC.

Gono and Hardy aren't 155, Damone. I agree with what you're saying though.

BJ is the best in stand-up and on the ground compared to everyone else in the LW division, at least with Anderson Silva, you have guys who are better on the ground than he is, and guys who can take him down.

BJ is dominant wherever the fight is.

Fedor fights I want to see..

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

Oh damn, my bad, they're WW's. Just replace them with guys like Rotten Rob and Nate Diaz.

Good call, Shamrock-Ortiz.

Ok this is my last reply on this subject. The LW seems to be so "talented" and there seems to be 30 top 10 fighters simply because of one reason. The guys a LW are all very close to each other in Skill level. That is why you see so many close fights, they are all small so they naturally have great stamina so they are always action packed. The are always close because most of them dont have the power to land a fight changing shot. Take Spencer Fisher vs Sam Stout. Those guy puched each other in the face many times. But no one got stunned. Lw is great for entertaining, action packed, close fights. But that doesnt equal them being any more talented than the other weight classes. You mean to tell me that the smaller you are the more talented you are. Come on man that is just retarded. There are alot of guys who train together in camps, LW train with Middle W. LHW tain with HW ext. And Anderson Silva's striking is a level above BJ s. I like LW but to say that they are more talented because they are smaller is not making sense to me......

Bump for the fights tommorow. Baron vs Miller will be a top notch ground battle I picked it to end in round 1 but the more I think about it the more I think it'll go 3 rounds and really open some eyes. Baron is a great LW and Miller is one of the best prospects in the UFC LW divison.

I'm pretty sure Carwin will pound Wain in aobut 30 seconds or less.

Wain likes to slug but Carwin is better at it then him.
