    you want to make it great by taking out one of its only contenders?

    They need more prospects, but there just aren't that many high level heavier fighters out there, bigger athletes go into actual sports that pay actual good money

    LHW is a pile of shit since the legends got old.

    Hardly any top new comers. just gus and rumble. Cormier dropped from HW

    Lmao.

    As crap of a fighter he is, he has improved drastically. His stand up looks professional now rather than amateur

    The problem is there is like 3 fighters in that weight that are clearly better than everyone else. And that's an issue. It clearly doesent have the talent it should have. All the UFC needs to do is focua on bringing in more LHW prospects instead of looking for sage northcutts.

    Chuck/Wand/Shogun/Hendo/Nog/Overeem/Arona/Tito/Randy/Rashad/Machida/Rampage/Randleman/Igor/Vitor made it great. That is depth/a lot of greatness in a division.

    Now that they're old and retired we got Gus/Rumble/Jones/DC and it just doesn't cut it in terms of depth. You want greatness at LHW either find a ton of new talent or eliminate MW. That is the only thing that'd solve the depth problem.

    Jones is the only fighter of this era that compares with the Chuck era. Chuck made that class great as did Tito, Vitor and Randy(part time HW). The only answer is to have Jones back in there. DC is a great champion on paper since Jones was stripped but DC is not the most exciting fighter to watch. I felt the same about GSP as well. The USADA testing is part of it. I think there was a time when Tito, Vitor, Chuck or Randy could fight on any given day and it be good fight. Right now we have a paper champ and some really close competition but it has been cleaned out. We all know Jones is the best and only Rumble has not fought him. To answer your question.....Jones vs Rumble brings LHW back to the limelight.

    By not suspending Jones for estrogen blockers and updating the top ten every two years.

    They should do some heavy searching for talent, maybe another LHW TUF (perhaps international).

    I was bummed guys like Feijao, Innocente, Magalhaes and Barroso didn't pan out...

    hope Gus can re-light his fire

    Manuwa's looking solid.

    Still a giant fan of Krylov and OSP, and hope they keep improving

    Manuwa looks solid but he's pretty up there in age. I can't imagine he has a ton of time left in his career.
