    This is going to be the six degrees of separation of MMA but going from the highest weight class to lowest using common opponents

    DC fought Anderson Silva who fought Nick Diaz who fought BJ, who fought Edgar, who fought Sandhagen who fought Marlon Moraes, Who fought Cejudo

    I realized after I got to Penn that I could have gone DC to jones to Machida to Penn. Can anyone go down the ladder quicker?

    Randy (HW) fought Vitor (LHW), who fought Bisping (MW), who fought GSP (WW), who fought BJ (LW), who fought Frankie (FW), who fought Munhoz (BW), who fought Dodson (FLW)

    Not the quickest. I know others can do better. Let's see..

    Rumble (HW) fought Rich Clementi (WW) fought Gray Maynard (LW) fought Teruto Ishihara ( BW) fought Ulka Saski (FLW)

    Clementi fought at LW but I couldn't find a path from there.

    BJ fighting a one-off at HW ruins this thread

    All jokes aside, It really does, and Pulver's washed up broke bum ass doesn't help either, but the Truth hurts sometimes.

    But Machida weighed in at 220, Which is HW.

    Was Royce ever billed over 200 pounds?

    I suppose but the Class was not Heavyweight, which is what the TS asks for, not the weight alone.

    If you go by your definition though, I wonder if this could be broken also by a LHW coming in overweight and counting as a HW then?

    No need, it's a fair point which raises a different question :)

    Made me think if you did do it just on weight alone(and not class), whether you could skip the HW division by picking a LHW who had fought overweight for less of a purse.

    Oh wow, I just checked and Rumble missed weight for that Clementi fight. Fuck him.
