If you are 125 you arent elite. You are playing in a jv league pretending to be varsity. We gotta draw the line somewhere.

I see a lot of people bringing up WEC with a tone that's less "I genuinely miss WEC and the atmosphere regarding the weight classes it had" and more "I want these classes shuffled off to the basement because I want my UFC pure and untainted by people who should be labeled genetic abberations".

This is what I hate about discussions like this: the longer it goes on, the longer it approaches a point where people are acting like anyone under 5'10, 180 lbs is somehow a literal lesser person and not worth considering as human.

They are going through the "do you even lift" phase of their life. Get big or get out!
