We now have deeper talent pool and fewer make it to the UFC. This weeds out the lower tier fighters and ups the overall skill level, but if you compare top fighters from 10 years ago to today's, they are virtually eye-dentical.

meanwhile, UFC 12 alum Vitor just steamrolled his whole division.
That's because Vitor has "top of the food chain" striking.

Vitor is better than what he was. A lot better. So is Lawler, Mir etc.

"He had me in mount and my team were like "try this, try that. I flipped them off like "try what BRO, I'm not getting outta here, start sending my mail here. this is my new location."

Well , I think the lighter weights have always been pretty solid. MW is full of killers now and HW no longer has your Gan McGees and Cabbages. I think the competition is stiffer but I really don't see it as an huge evolution of the sport, I just a deeper pool of resources .
