but yeah theres a shocking lack of hwts, ufc needs to lower their standards on them. i mean the last girl fight was a 6-5 record vs a 3-1 record and were both somehow less skilled than the average ufc hwt, nobody even likes wbw compared to the people who like hwt
1) I think you are wrong. Tito and Rampage used to cut up to 25 lbs, to name just two. While weight cutting science is improving, it's only a few extra lbs they're getting out of it compared to 6 years ago.
2) Agree, the best big athletes are playing NFL etc
