    Why is welterweight so wrestling heavy It has always been this way, is there a correlation with the size of the guys or something like that or is all a coincidence?

    This. Only d1 and d2 bums at welterweight.
    The only real wrestlers in the UFC that are not russian are Cejudo, DC and Romero.

    It’s possible because LW/WW is the largest percent of the population, and the UFC signs mostly fighters who come from amateur sports who are American ie wrestlers, and because the average USA male is a LW/WW the talent pool is deeper in the wrestling scene hence why almost none of those wrestlers are Olympian’s while other weight class wrestlers make Olympic s and don’t always transition to MMA

    If I had to guess completely out of my ass:

    - Hughes set the standard of wrestling so high that other WWs had to play catch-up. Then GSP came along and WWs realized again that they needed to beef up their wrestling.

    - WW is right in the middle of the weight classes. So guys aren't so light and fast that it's difficult to grab them, and they're not so heavy that a light punch can KO anyone (the reason LHW and HW isn't kind to grinders).

    That's actually a good point i would also guess out of my ass that majority of wrestlers are welterweights cause lw is the average size human and wrestlers are just a little bigger cause they are on general more muscular ( compared to strikers )

    I think because the actual average size of a human being is welterweight after cutting a little weight. For many wrestlers that want to come into MMA, this is going to be the largest pool.

    I was thinking about this too. It seems the ideal weight to really control someone with wrestling.

    I have done zero research except looking up the average size of a human being though lol.
