    Weidman, Rockhold, Smith, Santos, and Jacare have all moved up. Besides the top 3 guys at MW there's nothing left except journeymen.

    Yeah and LHW got a resurrection. We'll see if not some WW will move up. We saw some LW moving to WW as well.

    Not quite
    Smith wasn't even ranked
    Weidman was on a losing streak
    Rockhold was history
    Santos wasn't that good at MW

    Whittaker - young, champion, top talent
    Adesanya - same
    Costa - young, top fighter
    Gas - same
    Hermansson - good fighter, in his prime
    Romero - old, but he can still beat most MWs and LHWs, even some HWs

    Top 5 MW;
    1 Whittaker
    2 Adesanya
    3 Costa
    4 Romero
    5 Gastulum
    vs
    Top 5 LHW;
    1 Jones
    2 Santos (gets destroyed at mw)
    3 Smith (maybe top 15 mw)
    4 Reyes
    5 Blachowicz (who?)
    Also, Weidman, Rockhold, and Souza are old and no match for Whittaker and co.

    Said this the last few months. MW outside the top 5 is full of gatekeepers.

    Gastelum, Whittaker, Adesanya all probably get destroyed if they moved up to LHW aswell. What's your point? Fact is Santos and Smith aren't MW's anymore so your argument is redundant. You say about guys like Smith but Adesanya, Kelvin probably wouldn't have victories over guys like Gus or Oezdemir if they moved up like he has.

    Let the MW division crush the WW and all what's left becomes SuperLW or SuperWW.

    Jack hermanson vs Jared Cannonier in a few weeks

    You got Till moving up, Costa, Yoel and Kelvin.

    Idk what you're talking about MW is looking as stacked as ever.

    I'd google first what you think a gatekeeper is and then come back to me.

    In boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts, a gatekeeper is a skillful and well-regarded fighter, but one who does not have the popularity or brilliance of a title contender. They are considered to be a cut above most journeymen.

    So not sure how most of LHW can't become title contenders but we're supposed to believe with your logic guys like Brad Tavares and Derek Brunson are with your logic. Mmkay. MW has a great top 5 but the rest of the division is wank.

    Lol any division where Anthony "Kittyheart" Smith is a contender is a division that can suck deez nutz. MW is a competitive shark tank. LHW is a shitshow.
