    Think about it.

    MW is stacked there are so many dam good matches to make and we even have one in another org that could arguably be champ in UFC

    The MWs today are even the same size as the LHW of yesteryear. Even some LHW from yesteryear fight at MW

    MW is the new gold standard weight class in MMA

    MW looks solid but not great.

    Good young talent in Adesanya, Kelvin and Costa.

    But Romero and Weidman are on the downside. Jacare and Luke too.

    Plus the champ is always hurt and only defends once a year.

    Stacked... but a division that seems to lose a lot of fights before the event.

    Any division seems "stacked" when you don't have a dominant champion. If someone can hang onto the belt for a half-dozen defenses, suddenly it'll become a bunch of has-beens who were never that good.

    Eh- not sure about that.These guys need to train correctly and in a safe manner. If it's a problem, ascend to 205.185 is too small for Luke Rockhold right now and it's only going to destroy his career if he doesn't "get it" between the ears.That goes for Chris too (im talking possible title shots and staying healthy).
    You got Israel and Costa which we'll see how this turns out.

    This, though depressing, is quite true.

    This. MW became "stacked" as soon as AS lost. It was "weak" beforehand just like LHW is "weak" now because of Jones.

    Don't forget that many of the MWs are or should be LHWs. Luke, Yoel, maybe Weidman
