You could say that all 3 got a showcase fight every now and then, but Cro Cop for example was fighting 6 times per year at one point. I would rather see him vs 5 good HW with a showcase fight against Minowa somewhere in there, than get just one or two fights per year from Cain Velasquez, or Anthony Pettis like we see in the UFC.

I think that's a bigger issue for the UFC then lack of padded records.
Cain and Pettis are always injured.

Zuffa has many jobbers on it's roster. You're retarded if you disagree.

Mondragon just got signed for christ sake.

I'm sure the Brooklyn Brawler could use a paycheck.

why do people say athletic commissions won't allow it? they just make you pass the medical/drug tests they don't judge skill levels.

Mismatches happen all the time when UFC goes to Brazil.

This all day long.

You forgot to mention Royston Wee, Dave Galera and TUF China. They appear to be signing more as time goes by. And charging us more money to watch the jobbers also.

True.
Not all of them were Japanese, there were a couple of Mexicans and Brazilians in there too...
