They've been rewarding guys that step up, but the problem for them is how insanely deep the lightweight division is. Look at this top thirty (30)!

1. Anthony Pettis
2. Gilbert Melendez
3. Benson Henderson
4. Khabib Nurmagomedov
5. Josh Thompson
6. TJ Grant
7. Nate Diaz
8. Rafael Dos Anjos
9. Donald Cerrone
10. Rustam Khabilov
11. Gray Maynard
12. Jim Miller
13. Myles Jury
14. Michael Johnson
15. Jorge Masvidal
16. Edson Barboza
17. Bobby Green
18. Joe Lauzon
19. Diego Sanchez
20. Ross Pearson
21. Evan Dunham
22. Gleison Tibau
23. Tony Ferguson
24. Takanori Gomi
25. Michael Chiesa
26. KJ Noons
27. Abel Trujillo
28. James Krause
29. Jamie Varner
30. Pat Healy

20 through 30 are good. That's how stacked that division is. And most of the fighters on this list are insanely entertaining to watch as well.

Any other big(ish) fights where you just did not want to see them have to fight each other?
Can't say I "hate" it, but I'd rather see both of these guys against OTHER opponents (I agree).


Josh Thomson and Bobby Green are fighting next week on the FOX card. In general, I still rather see Strikeforce guys go against UFC guys (/WEC guys)...

Josh Thomson vs
Jim Miller

Cowboy vs
Bobby Green
