I think it's interesting that the LW division used to be the weaker weight division for talent, but now I find it has switched and it's the middle weight division that's lacking robust talent

Middleweight division does not lack talent, thats a good division from my point of view. Their are about 5 people waiting for a shot in that division plus 10 good fighters in it. Mike Swick, Nate Marquardt, Dean Lister, Anderson Silva, all looking for a shot.

Its the heavyweight division which is seriously lacking in talent.

Heavyweights only has Marcio Cruz, Cheick Kongo, and Brandon Vera after Jeff Monson gets his shot and Arlovski maybe in a fourth match with Tim which we all wouldn't want to see again. Plus Frank Mir and Assuerio Silva will lose more times and not get a title shot unless they want a Mir .vs. Sylvia rematch :dunno:. Its the division that serious lacks in talent I don't see it going more than a year.

AA is finished. He needs to get to a shrink to help him find his confidence. Maybe he and "The Crow" could go together. I can't stand the LW division. I feel like I am watching middle school kids. The small guys are always the ones running there mouths and starting stuff, then when they get pulvarized by a real man everyone feels sorry for them.

The HW division is probably the worst but the LHW isnt far behind.

Regardless how AA has performed in the last 2 fights, he's still amazing, there's no denying that.

In the HW division your top guys are Sylvia, Mir, Monson, Congo, AA, Cruz, Buentello, and Kevin Jordan.

In the LHW you have Liddell, Ortiz, Babalu (after this it's about it for UFC regulars, the rest are basically TUF fighters), Evans, Griffin, Bonnar, Jardine.

However give Bisping some time to get a few wins under his belt, then he'll face one of the top names, maybe Babalu or even put him against Evans, then he'll be considered a top contender.
















Kevin Jordan was a joke.

Kevin Jordan? I'm glad he hasn't faught since UFC 56, even as a teenager myself, I have better cardio then him and haven't trained once in MMA. But I know I can last longer than him in a fight. That fight against Buentello was pretty pathetic, he tapped to the lightest neck crank I've ever seen since he has such bad conditioning. Then the worst fight ever against Gonzaga at UFC 56.

i agree let bisbing get some wins under his belt then face someone good then the title shot, evans is also working his way up i think he just needs somemore experience and a few more tough fights that really challenge him and then a title shot but that'll hopefully be a ways off, you should also not forget matt hamill just watch him win a few as long as he doesn't get to cocky and gets submitted he has a good chance as well :thumbsup:
