    I'd say practically everyone is

    No one is interested in watching guys the same size as them fight, and seeing as the average Sherdogger is 6'5 250 pounds shredded 2% body fat they have no interest in HW

    I like them both equally.

    LW is deeper and more competitive but HW is still fun because anyone can beat anyone on any given night and a lot of those HWs are zombie veterans that have somehow remained in the top ten for almost a decade!

    Me. The lightweight division has been much deeper and more competitive, arguably, since it's inception. It would be nice to have a lightweight champion that feels a responsibility to defend the title, instead of the nonsense of installing an interim lightweight championship while a healthy champion sits out. I know that's expecting too much nowadays.

    MMA fans would be my guess.

    LW is the hottest div right now,but I would really get up for Stipe fights. Cain vs Stipe is a really big deal to me.

    Not me. I'm more interested in seeing the best fighters in the world (and I mean fights between the top 5-6, not sloppy brawlers like Black Beast). LW is a fun watch though.

    Im a huge Cain fan, ilove the way he fights. He's never been in one of those slow sloppy gassed out HW fights you hear of sometimes.

    That said i feel very dissapointed in his ability to get through a camp and will have a hard time getting excited for any fight he's booked in in the future. Just talking from a frustrated fans POV.

    A Stipe/JDS rematch would get me REALLY fired up

    I feel like Rumble would KO Reem, and Gus would decision Rothwell (who is ranked #5)

    With JDS, Hunt, Cain, and Lesnar no longer really being part of the equation... yes, I favor LW over HW.
    If they can get a few new prospects, and maybe some people can find a new gym...ahem Cain... then I'd probably start to like HW a bit more.
    It's kind of stale at the moment.
