    And DC is out of the picture,considering he is retiring soon...


    Do you see someone dominating the rest of what's left of that division,and who would it be?

    Gustafsson would be the champion right now and he'd be beating everybody else

    Still one of the best boxers in the division without a doubt

    Mark hunt, the #14 heavyweight on the verge of retirement would drop down and string together a 10 fight title reign. Obviously

    Rumble wouldnt have retired and he'd be raining an ungodly firestorm on all those scrubs

    Gus would run over this division almost as easily as Jones will in it's current state

    Take Jones away tho...I think Yoel and a few other big MWs would move up, then it's gets interesting.

    As far as competition goes it would be a much better division. At this point there is nobody that stands out as the next dominant champion (outside of Jones).

    IF Jones was gone from LHW, then I really don't know who would be champ, but I don't think there will be anyone dominant, I think it will just be a revolving door. Gus fights about once every 2 years and best win is injured Shogun by decision. Latifi would never fight him ever. Corey is unwatchable. Smith got his ass whopped by LW Josh Neer. Manuwa gets knocked out cold by slaps. It would be a disaster.

    it WOULD be interesting if Crumble came back and some MW's moved up.

    Lol Gustaffson is incredibly inactive and has probably the worst resume out of any top 5 fighter in any division. He is certainly not a lock to beat anyone considering his best win is a past his prime Shogun... in 2012! Crap thread

    Wins and losses arent everything. The guy has the talent to make any fighter piss blood.

    I don't know, man. LHW is petty bad right now. There are no fights in that division I care at all about.

    Lol well I think wins and losses might mean a little bit when you're talking about... dominating a division?? Lol. The guy has 2 wins in the last 5 years and only 3 wins in the last 7 years ffs... I'm not putting huge stock into his earth shattering win over Geriatric Glover who isn't top 10 anymore and hasn't beat a ranked opponent in 4 years (and that was Pat Cummings ffs).

    LHW is complete crap right now but there is zero evidence that Gustaffson would dominate the division considering 1) He never fights and 2) He hasn't fought relevant competition to show where he's at. The guy needs to get in the cage and rebuild his credibility because to serious fans, his career is more myth than substance at this point. I fully see why I had already ignored you lol your threads are shit

    Guys who fought years ago at a lower weight then they should be at doesn't tell the whole story. Or do you believe Rumble was a scrub at LHW because he got beat by Rich Clementi?

    You would be complaining that he hasn't been stripped cause he hasn't defended. He has fought once in two years.

    This was the elite division in mma when mma was great

    Now mma sucks and the division sucks as well.

    My point wasnt wether Gus could dominate the division or not,but he should not be denigrated in that manner,simply because of his win/loss record.
