    How from a great and exciting division with GSP, Condit, Hendricks, Diaz, Brown, Kim etc we got to a division with Colby, Till, Usman and Ponzi?

    I don't understand your problem.

    Till and Ponzinibbio are very good strikers, easily on-par with Condit and Brown.
    Colby and Usman are great wrestlers, if you don't like wrestling then go watch kickboxing or Muay Thai or whatever.

    They are unknown fighters. They dont have a solid base of fans like the other fighters had.

    WW now seems less "well rounded" than it's been in the past. With the exception of a few guys they all seem to be either really good strikers, really good wrestlers, but not too many seem to tick all the boxes anymore which is weird, that said, that's just my perception.

    Also, are we still going to consider Till a WW?

    Woodley is as much the WW GOAT as Weidman is the MW GOAT. You agree Weidman is the MW GOAT?

    No, you don't think that. So why do you knowingly, incorrectly think Woodley is the WW GOAT? The guy was in the UFC while Georges was champ and simply put, wasn't good enough to earn a shot. He tried and lost a striking match with striking champion Jake Shields.... lol. He coincidentally became good enough when certain guys left the division. He'll never be better than Georges and Colby is probably going to beat him.

    Most experts agree that Weidman is clearly the MW GOAT

    not really. ufc is much stronger than ever at WW.
    woodley - would kill everyone of gsp's opponents. Yea and jake shields beat him when he dint even have a coach nor did he have any striking qualities at the time. totally green.

    usman - elite grappler with power. better than fitch.

    wonderboy - easily one of the best strikers in WW of all time. top 3.

    till - similar to wonderboy with more power but less guile and craftiness.

    ponzinibbio- elite world class striker with incredible take down defense. Powerful, big strong fighter and easily better than many of gsp's opponents.

    colby - chaos. talks crap but he is legit as they come too. he would outwork fitch and diaz comfortably. Relentless pressure is no joke.

    rda - complete striker with incredible volume and a black belt in ju jutsu.
