    I guess SW division isn't more skilled than BW then lol.

    No disrespect to Valerie, but she was never thought to be a contender at BW and struggled badly with Elizabeth Phillips who's considered one of the worse BWs in the UFC... drops to SW hoping she'll have a better chance at success there and look at her now, derailing the slayer of mighty Jojo and going to be ranked top 10.

    Yeah yeah 'maybe she's more suited for 115' but she's 5'7 and had to drop a lot of weight to make SW, do people still really think the green prospects who make up the majority of top ranked fighters at SW are more skilled than the veterans of BW? It isn't and never was so.

    PS. I also have to throw in a mention of my favorite example, Claudia Gadelha walks around at about the same weight as Tate and heavier than Andrade and has fought at over 130 before, if SW is so much more skilled why doesn't the number 2 SW who is actually BW sized run through the BW division to take a much more lucrative shot at the famed 135 champion? Maybe because she doesn't think she can? :D

    So Valerie beats 23 year old prospect Moroz and that immediately means the entire SW division isn't more skilled than BW? Lol sherdog

    I guess fighters never improve, especially after changing to a top team.

    Oh and this

    She beat someone who had six fights and it was a close back and forth fight. Big deal. The girl she beat was 23 and will come back stronger from this.

    Sure she may have improved, but if she thought her improvement could have brought her the same chances of success at BW, she probably would have stayed there considering the hard work she put in to drop down.

    The parrot shit is old, if Letourneau takes the SW belt I guess it will be put to rest for good at least for this generation XD

    How is her dropping down in weight and finding success any different than when other fighters do it? And how does that make the SW division weak all of a sudden?

    It doesn't necessarily make it 'weak' but it indicates that maybe it isn't MASSIVELY MORE SKILLED TO A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL than BW as parrot sheep claim.

    Well Lombard did say throw some money on Letourneo. Was it a definitive 29-28 for Val? just watching the play by play and it seemed competitive.

    Val vs Randa next

    Comparing womens division is like comparing mens middleweight and lightweight divisions. Size matters in that aspect.

    I must admit, I was watching her bottom as much as the fight towards the end there but yeah. I thought she did fine. I thought she did a good job.

    The point isn't that SW 'sucks' it's that it's not MASSIVELY MORE SKILLED THAN BW which is what ridiculous parrot sheep haters of the BW division try to say. This is strictly a response to that garbage which is perpetuated daily on Sherdog.

    Almost nobody compares any other divisions 2 weight classes apart in the same way, and with good reason.

    Why doesn't Ronda fight Cyborg at 145lbs? I don't understand your argument. Do you not agree with weight cutting or something? do you not agree that some fighters are better at certain weights?
