Also I think you are way off when you say MW is stacked because Anderson lost. Moose,Machida,Jacare, are all new and Chris is barely now reaching the elite level and is new to that scene. Actually it makes Anderson's record less impressive considering he is already 0-1 against all the new talented opponents he has now at MW (Now that MW isn't weak...) Vitor is a legit win and HL KO but TRT Vitor is hitting his stride and a win over him now is more impressive than a win over him then.
Machida said he rather retire than fight anderson

yea no denying his physical attributes looks way better now then the Anderson fight. I think he still looked sharpe in the Anderson fight just got caught early with the front kick. Anderson was smart enough to not try the bobing and weiving with vitor too.

Weidman is the only guy at MW that I can see holding the belt for more than 2 title defenses, most all of the best contenders are in their 30s except Weidman and Mousasi who Weidman matches up extremely well with.

I always thought that Rampage would be a monster at MW if he could get there.

I think Anderson will get his belt back here in a couple weeks and have one last run left him, but I don't think he will keep it for 2 more years. I see Weidman either becoming champ again, or beating Anderson in the rematch and holding on to the title until he moves up.

I know most people still aren't sold, but this guy has been an elite prospect from day 1 and the rate at which him improves at is something we must take in to account. Machida is the only "bad" matchup, but if Davis was given the nod vs Machida there is no reason Weidman couldn't do the same since his game is much more well rounded.

MW was always one of the weakest divisions while Anderson ruled it. MW finally gets talent and so far Anderson is 0-1 against them. and that's a fact (He may be 0-2 by the end of the year) Also with Vitor All you have to do is look at Vitor then and Vitor now. Maybe it's something else, but Vitor isn't the same fighter that fought Anderson and it's pretty clear.

Butt hurt indeed.
lol @ weakest division. Good thing he moved up to LHW to face the #4 ranked LHW then right? Or what about the 4 LHW fighters that didn't accept the fight with Silva? Cos he was such a bum in a talentless division I guess?

You are really ignorant and stupid. 0-1 against MW talent... seriously...

Yea, it's better to say #4 ranked LHW then Forrest Griffin. Also I never said he was a bum, but if you wanna play like that Shogun wanted a piece of Anderson.... Guess what Anderson did? quack quack quack.

Say it's stupid all you want, dem facts son. This isn't a division full of Lutter's Cote's and Maia's. How Shocking that when the MW division actually shapes up and becomes legit..... Anderson losses his belt before the party gets started lol.

Butthurt gonna butthurt. You fell for the hype. I bet you thought Anderson could have moved up and beat Cain right? lol.
