    Jorge and Pettis were bottom 10 LWs and both just KOd top 3-5 WWs stiff who were also the best sturikers in the division

    Max the #4 P4P fighter and easily best FW moves up to a division he said was "natural" to him and gets 4-1'd and the shit beat out of him by Dustin whos not even top 3 in the division........

    Agreed that's why I disagree with a 165

    Agreed. WW nowadays is shit.
    Both Pettis and Masvidal were gatekeepers at LW , Masvidal was barely even a gatekeeper at LW.
    FW and BW are great divisions as well

    Yeah it has been for a long time and Khabib is probably the strongest champ in the UFC

    no
    just cause you are a lightweight doesn't mean it is the best div. HW will always be the best.

    its a little more than remotely close. Two of the last three champions are FWs

    LW - so deep that they had to drag the champ up from 145 just to give a guy that's only beaten a single top 5 in the division a bone of a title shot...

    Excuse me, sir, but he definitely is. Khabib and Tony #1 and #2, in whichever order you prefer, and Dustin is #3. Who else at 155 beats him?

    Interim titles arent legit champion claims

    and Dustin was a FW for 11 fights in his career. He started out as a LW. His WEC debut was at LW and he has 20 career fights at LW now. Hes a LW, just b/c he weight drained himself for a couple years in his career to make 145 doesnt make him a FW

    Half of Conors losses are @ LW

    he lost once @ FW in his debut at the weight and has 1 loss @ WW

    not helping ur case

    LW is eons better than any division

    so anybody who moves down from LW is a LW and anybody who moves up from LW is also a LW? yea, I guess when you treat LW as every fighters home base theres not much to argue

    semantics aside, you said its not even close, LW is top heavy but like previously stated, still needed a FW to move up for a main event

    Conor has 2 fights @ WW so no. Hes a FW but has 2 losses to current UFC LWs in fights that took place @ LW

    There is no fighter at 155 that would stand a chance against the likes of Usman, Woodley or Askren. Khabib knows it.
