It isn't. it was the same with MW while Andersonw as reigning everyone said that MW is weak and as soon as he lost it is "stacked" people are just pissed off that no one beats Jones

Middleweight had a few years of some noticeable drought. Cote, Maia and Leites weren't considered legitimate threats, and Silva treated them precisely as such. It wasn't until 2012, primarily due to the inclusion of the Strikeforce roster, that it began to swell. Not dissimilar from the boost Light Heavyweight received upon the addition of the Pride division.

It was never that deep. Its just there were a lot of elite fighters at LHW compared to other divisions. Right before Bones beat Shogun it was. Shogun, Machida, Rashad, Rampage, Lil Nog, Davis, Bader, Bones, Griffin. The top ten was probably the most elite out of all divisons. But outside the top ten is shallow.
