Which UFC division would you most like to see have more depth?

For me its HW. I love watching heavyweight fights, but I feel like even with the addition of the Strikeforce roster the division has too many gate keepers and not enough potential contenders. The fact that Mir is still getting title shots is a testament to this. Also, I'm not sure if the data actually backs this up, but it seems like HW's are more prone to injury and it keeps them out for longer.

Women's Bantamweight and Flyweight could both use more talent as well, but I'll take 1 good HW over 5 good flyweights.

Would have made this a poll but not sure how or if I even can...

HW
BW
FLW

As far as HW goes, there just doesn't seem to be too much prospect talent out there right now. BW and FLW though, theres a bunch of guys that deserve to be signed but the UFC just hasn't, which is all together weird, stupid and frustrating.

Flyweight. As hated as it is by some, I love this division. Nonstop action. And there are plenty of good flyweights out there the UFC could sign.

Flyweight. Because I love the pace and at this rate , MM will face a lot of his contenders multiple times, I like MM but I want so see more variety.

HW. I love watching the big guys, but it's bit thin.

HW for sure. I'd love to see flyweight get bantamweight get some more guys also. I think those divisions are very exciting, the problem is a lack of finishes. Get some new hungry guys in there and there will be more interest in the lower divisions.
