4 current champions who are also analysts- I personally doubt that this is just a coincidence. There must be a major upside to constantly analyzing fights and potential opponents, and it's very interesting to see how the sport is evolving. I definitely think Cruz deserves some credit for being one of the first high profile champions to popularize the analyst approach- he has always prided himself on his movement and intelligence. What're your guys thoughts? Just a coincidence or is there an analyst advantage ?
