    Dana has been actively seeking young, explosive, exciting fighters for some time now and there are so many prospects on the roster, I believe the ufc will be far more exhilarating to watch in the coming years for casuals mainly. But so many more people will get into the UFC, it will grow so much. More so than ever. imo

    We sometimes forget that all of the old legends we love were once young fighters nobody cared about.

    I'm not excited seeing old legends go out cause they refuse to retire


    But I am happy seeing the next generation coming up

    I am a bit puzzled that several legends and old fighters are still competitive against the socalled young up and comers... Younger guys tah were born into mma, and supposedly has evolved, struggle against past prime 40 year olds..

    I don't know 95% of those people.

    And I used to know 99% of the people fighting in King of the cage.

    Yeah, there's a ton of prospects at LHW and HW. It's practically the new golden age.
