Most shallow divisions in my opinion live is 1. WBW and i think FLW, HW and BW are equally shallow

HW is the thinnest. Flyweight and bantamweight are on a similar footing, right now. Bantamweight has a lot of talent in other organizations.

Yep, on FightMatrix 4 of the top 10 fighters at BW are not in the UFC.

Yeah, no. It's less proven than HW. Gaudinot is a ranked FlW and yet he's 6-3. The top 5 after the champ:

John Lineker - Lost to Gaudinot, then won 4 in a row against decent competition
John Moraga - Went from Facebook prelims right into a title shot
Uncle Creepy - 1 win in his last 4 fights (granted, 3 of those fights were against maybe the 2 best guys in the division)
Joseph Benavidez - Only 4 wins at Fly
John Dodson - Went from TUF to title shot in 2 fights

Flyweight is better right now than bantamweight in IMO with Jorgenson, Pickett, and Horiguchi dropping down and with the last few months picking up Montague, Sampo, Campuzano, Alpi, and Makovsky and with guys like Fernandes, Dantas, and Moraes fighting outside of the UFC at Bantamweight. But the mens divison no matter how wekk at any given time still have waaaaaay more depth than any womens division half the women fighting in the UFC are at the midcard of a local show level.

I don't count the women's division. It doesn't exist.

FW is the weakest.

Give it a year.

Bantamweight is looking good, cause so many people are now choosing to come down from featherweight.

Heavyweight is not looking good at all.
