UFC Light Heavyweight Division In Trouble?

Lets face it, ufc has an awesome champion in the lhw division. But the rest of the division is really lacking. As for the active current fighters, there is liddell, ortiz, sobral, and jackson. there is also griffin, jardine, and bisping and evans, but there isnt any pressing action here. They just keep babying evans, not giving him any good fighters. They want to build bisping up. Griffin lost due to a lucky (but good) punch. Jackson said that he is not interested in the title, he said he wants "a couple of fights first". So I ask you, who is to challenge the iceman and give us some excitement.

I don't have the answers but I somewhat agree with you.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Yeah, I see where you're coming from. Which is why I think UFC should bring back Randleman to add a bit of color to the roster. Chuck did KO Randleman but I think Randleman has the tools to beat Chuck.

You know what I think randleman has? Excitement, which is more than I can say for a lot of fighters. After all, he did knock out Cro Cop. I think bringing him back would be a good idea.

Put his record a side. He is a very dangerous fighter.

1. GSP
2. Franklin
3. Lesnar
4. Forrest

I dont think the LHW divsion is in any trouble at all. They have alot of up and coming talent with some solid fighters to. Chucks great, but hes getting old, and eventually he has to fight wand/shogun(I hope....).

who cares... rampage will be champ by this time next year, at latest... and honestly, if they keep thinking they're gunna find the next great fighter through a reality show... they're doomed to a shitty roster forever!!!

they need to physically go to PRIDE fighters and get them. otherwise, they're not only ignoring the better fighters, but at least half the fighters out there...

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

I agree as aside from the Champion, there are few very good fighters. UFC needs to recruit some 205 lbs fighters from PRIDE or K-1 even.
