I thought the HWGP was a good idea, but like you say, it fell apart. Good idea in concept, poor execution. Overeem is partially to blame.

I think the Zuffa wants there to be one org: The UFC. Period.

Now I kind of think it would've been better for the smaller weight classes to have remained separate. They had their own thing and there's something kind of cool about that.

Anyone else feel similarly?
Not really. I do miss Mir commentating, though.

Don't know about Vic Grimes but New Jack is a certified piece of shit and almost killed a few people in the ring.

The WEC was the best organization in my opinion.
