If you had them fight against fighters from other divisions, they would dominate most fights and the best would end up being a HW.
Everyone knows this - it's why they have weight classes in the first place - because the smaller fighters can't compete with the big ones.
Winning at the form of competition in question is what determines "best".
You don't understand the spirit of the argument. Size does not = skill in MMA. Just because a bigger guy would beat up a smaller one, does not make him a more skillful martial artist.
If Royce Gracie fought a 400 lb sumo wrestler, the sumo would crush him....does that mean the Sumo is a better mixed martial artist?
