    Heavyweight. LHW falls off a cliff after Volkan and then falls off an even steeper cliff after OSP.

    EDIT: Damn, the only LHWs who are capable of being legit contenders are Gus and Volkan. Everyone else is either over the hill or will probably never get a legit title shot.

    We really needed a "dead fish" option.

    HW I guess.

    The downfall of the most prestige weight class in UFC history.

    I'd say HW. The top 5 at HW shits on the top 5 in LHW imo.

    Because HW is always shallow (it still is) but LHW used to be the best division in the world and now its even more shallow than HW.

    Its sad for me. 205 division back in the 2004-2009 era was my all time favorite

    Out of my mind
    Shogun is still the greatest fighter on this planet so it's still LHW until he retires

    Imagine how awesome LHW would be with this lineup:

    Champ- Jones
    1. DC
    2. Rumble
    3. Gus
    4. Volkan
    5. Glover
    6. Bader
    7. Phil Davis
    8. Manuwa
    9. OSP
    10. Shogun

    We could've had this too had things been different.

    Shogun #5 in 2017

    12 years after his best year of 2005
