The talent level has gone down tremendously over the past couple of years. Whittaker might be the most overated champion in UFC middleweight history. I mean what is he good at a part from getting close decision wins? Also having Bisping as a champion for a long time and holding up the division kind of ruined it. None of these middleweights today would be able to beat the middleweights a few years ago. Silva, Belfort, prime chris weidman.
