the HW class isn't that bad anymore when you think about it, they have cro cop, randy, heath, Fabricio Werdum, kongo and some others i cant think off the top of my head

the LHW and the MW need the most help.

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....

why must u always argue with me lol.

k down the list i go

rampage - great add

tito - has looks really bad in his last 5 fights

bisping - little too small and has not faced really good fighters yet

Rashad - has impressed me as of late

forrest - a crowd fav but not a top 10

Jardine - shows good skill but only got reconized in his last fight which he was losing till he got that one punch in

Ryoto - a great add ill give u that one

so what i should have said was

"the MW's needs the most help and the LHW need help too, but not as much as MW's"

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....

Just to go back to the HW, I personally think it is just difficult to find big guys that are actually coordinated and talented enough to compete in the ufc.

Sure you can find the guys like Rashed and Jardine who can sit at the 220 mark, but there is that inevitability that they will just drop weight.

To ensure there not goin to do that ya need to find big
6'4" - 6'8" dudes who just cant physically loose the weight. Not sure about you but for the UFC to find 8-16 descent fighters that size would be difficult.

UFC has a great HW Division. Couture, Sylvia, Arlovski, Werdum, Gonzaga, Vera etc. Not to mention the rumors of UFC buying pride have basically reached its peak. UFC doesn't need many more HW's. Can you imagine....Fedor, Cro Cop, Nog, Sylvia, Couture, Arlovski, Werdum, Vera, Aleks, Hunt....all in one promotion! That's huge.

And I agree with Choke_Wire. LHW and MW need some more depth. But they have already done two LHW and MW combined seasons, so I don't think they will do it.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

I think all WW is a great plan. True the WW division is saturated with talent but WW's can make an entire season and then disperse easily into different weight classes after the show. Think about it. WW put on great fights (IMO) and then after the show, some can stay at WW, some can go to LW, and others to MW. 170 is a very versatile weight.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Yea i agree MW is actually pretty bad. In a Divsion dominated by Silva and Franklin there are like no other Main Eventers. Swick, Okami, Marquardt need to get some big wins. imo Kendall Grove sucks.
