The transitions is the LW division are so fun to watch. Nothing tops that IMO. I think the LHW's have the most start power and most intriguing matchups. But most exciting goes to LW.

I gave it to Welterweights. Lightweights are fast and furious, but my problem with them is the majority of them are all speed and no power. There are a few exceptions like Gomi, Sherk, Penn, etc., but the vast majority lack KO power and often the power to pull a difficult sub off.

The Welterweight division, to me, has all the speed but more power. I'd also give a nod to the seemingly unpopular Middleweight division for the same reason.

I think it goes in this order personally:

WW>LW>HW>LHW>MW

GSP, Penn, Hughes, Serra, Koscheck, Sanchez, Fitch, Parisyan, Johnson.

vs

Shogun, Liddell, Rampage, Machida, Bisping, Griffin, Ortiz, Evans,...???


I'd definitely pick the first group.

I'd have to say either Middleweight or Light heavyweight.

To me it goes: WW > MW > LW > LHW > HW.

I think the WW and MW divisions have guys who are still quick and agile, but retain enough size and power to pull off vicious subs or nasty KO's. It's actually odd since 2 of my top 3 favorite fighters are in the LW division (Gomi and Penn), but overall WW and MW are my favorite.

Fights like the Clay Guida/Tyson Griffon fight kill me sometimes on the LW division. I'm sitting there screaming at the tv, "Somebody cause some freaking damage! You're like a bunch of hyper hamsters!" There are a handful of LW's who can really dish out the pain, but overall I think the division is a little light on powerful guys. There are some, like Joe "Daddy," Sherk, etc., but I like the divisions where it's a norm and not a rareity.
