    I remember when so many people rebelled.

    The reason the FW division is so popular is because of ridiculous weight cutting these days. Back then those fighters would be fighting at WW.

    I was against it at the time because I was not willing to shell out however much a ppv was in 2011 to watch Dominick Cruz headline. I also really liked the WEC for what it was. Obviously I've come around on the merger in the past decade but I do miss the UFC's little brother.

    I am still anti-wmma. The good fights do not make up for the bad fights, of which there are many.

    IIRC Garza got a flying triangle in his next fight. I forget who against.

    Pretty banging start to a UFC career.

    I truly have no idea if the second one if truth or not. Only thing I know is that looks/sounds incredibly similar to the Barra Gracie where I went to four or five bjj sessions, more than a decade ago. Truly toxic place.
