    Besides Jon Jones and DC(should be heavyweight) they're a load of potatoes really.
    Guys who were at the bottom of the MW's are able to just come up and clean house easily.

    It's sort of like HW but lighter.

    Just not as light as MW though.

    :D

    Everyone should just take PEDs like Jones, maybe it will make light heavyweight great again

    That's what happens when you have a dominant champ. Makes everyone else in the division look like they don't belong. Holloway did the same at 145.

    Yeah it's pretty shitty, but it looks like it might be finally getting better with solid prospects like Reyes, Rakić, Walker, Crute, Cutelaba and a few Russian dudes.
    Rockhold at Light Heavyweight should be fun as well.

    Guys moving up and having success doesn't take anything away from the division they move up to... Middleweight is shit because Gastelum and Whittaker were Welterweights. Lightweight is shit because Conor is a Featherweight and became champ and Dustin was a Feathwrweight and is a top contender. Bantamweight is trash because TJ got ko'd by a Flyweight... Am I doing this right?

    To have Jones in a division where he has complete physical advantages over his competition.

    LHW is more shallow than HW. Absolute joke of a """division""".

    Because without LHW, you will have people weighing 190lbs in HW. Saying LHW should be HW is like saying FLW should be BW and BW should be FW since they're only 10lbs apart.

    At least MW and LHW is 20 lbs apart. It is very needed. Can't be HW without weighing over 200. 205 is a great breaker.
