The Bantomwieght has always been a pretty competitive and talented division going back to its WEC days. I've been pretty hard on "little guys" over the past few years but when you stop and look at it....this division deserves a lot of respect. It has produced a line of great champions with solid contenders. This division has established a legacy of greatness. Miguel "Angel" Torres At his peak he was 37-1 and on an 18 fight win streak. He racked up 3 title defenses with victories over names like Takeya Mizugaki, Manny Tapia, Yoshiro Maeda, and Chase Beebe. He was in the discussion for #1 p4p fighter in the world. Dominick Cruz Its a shame that Cruz has had such problems with injuries because before that he was absolutely dominating his competition. He was 19-1 with 4 title defenses. His notable wins include Urijah Faber, Joseph Benevidez 2x, Brian Bowles, Mighty Mouse, Scott Jorgenson, and Ian McCall. 9-1 record under Zuffa. Renan Barao Just days ago he was being lauded as the absolute greatest fighter on the planet. He was on a 35 fight unbeaten streak with an incredible record of 34-1-1. He reached 3 title defenses and picked up at least 6 top 10 wins during his reign. Dillashaw came out last night and put on a show by knocking off such a highly regarded champion. But that was the easy part.... Now it's time to see if the Dillashaw can establish his own legacy of greatness. He's got big shoes to fill.
