    I would say personally it's lightweight, but if MacDonald and Larkin was still in the UFC, then it would be very close.

    Welterweight is where all these guys are looking neck and neck, I could see several guys rising up and becoming champion or I could see Woodley continuing to hold onto the belt for a while. So yeah I'll say 170.

    Lightweight and is not even close. The division is so stacked and competitive from #15 to #1 that we haven't seen a dominant champion with more than 3 defenses.

    Welterweight doesn't even have a clear contender right now.

    Lightweight, but Welterweight gets points for having a champion that defends.

    Seriously.

    Is this thread a joke? UFC's WW division is weak as fuck. Bellator's is at least on par if not better. Larkin holds wins over three current top 10 guys in the UFC and has gone 0-2 in Bellator. Rory Mac holds a win over the current UFC champ. Koreshkov would be, at worst, a top 5 guy in the UFC if not an outright contender for the title. Lima and Daley would be top 10.

    The division overall is as weak as it's ever been, and Bellator has about half of the top 10. The idea that UFC's WW division is better than their LW division is laughable.

    The poll results tell me it's pretty damn close.

    So no, the thread is not a joke.

    LW has been the best division for a long time. The talent is ridiculous. The politics and shit at the championship and #1 contender spot is annoying, but outside of that, damn near anyone in the top 10 vs anyone else in the top 10 is a great match up with title implications(if it was just ranking based.)

    WW was the most overrated and one of the weakest divisions during GSPs reign. Bellator arguably has a better WW division than the UFC at the moment.

    Lightweight easy.

    Lightweight gets my body ready. Even though welterweight is exciting I can still skip a matchup or 2.
