This question is spurred on following UFC 145's main event. The heavyweight bout is a useful example of the topic I'm discussing. Both JDS and Cain have been absolutely dominant to the rest of the fighters in the division. In the case of JDS, for example, when he fought the then No #1 contender in Frank Mir, he lit him up like a Christmas tree and the skill gap was... well let's just say that it was more than obvious. The same could also be said for Cain and his brutal exercise over Big Foot. So my question would be: do you agree that there is a massive skill differential that separates the top 2 or 3 in the HW division with the rest? What other divisions do you guys think this applies to? MW would be a prime example of what I'm talking about. Discuss.
