    Almost everyone says that LHW is one of worst divisions and that there are no good LHW fighters outside of top promotions.... but i dont think so -

    Tomasz Narkun (17-3) KSW

    Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov (18-5) ACA

    Nasrudin Nasrudinov (9-0) ACA

    Ivan Shtyrkov (17-1) RCC

    Muslim Magomedov (7-0) ACA

    Reiner De Ridder (12-0) ONE FC

    Asylzhan Bakhytzhanuly (11-1) ACA

    Bogdan Guskov (10-1) BRAVE FC

    Csaba Hocz (7-1) GCF

    Ivan Erslan (8-0) KSW
    etc...

    All of these guys could compete in UFC ... it seems to me like UFC have lack of interest in LHW

    The audience is tired of these inflated manlets. It’s time to focus on MW and above.

    All the ACA/KSW fighters will be hard to sign, cause fighters from Russia are paid well and the UFC will have to pay them extra to switch over. Plus most of them are on steriods and will shrink coming over to the UFC.

    But UFC is able to pay them they just dont want to - lack of interest

    btw we dont even have Prochazka in UFC if he cared so much about money - he was making lot more in RIZIN by what i know

    Maybe those guys are under contract and can't just switch over to the UFC?

    I was very surprised that they let Bellator get Alex Polizzi, that guy has great potential imo.

    Just because they say it doesn’t mean it’s true.

    Also the UFC they are always signing new talent even with LHWs it’s just that UFC scouts have decided to sign different talent from what you suggested

    There could be much more signings .... LHW needs new blood

    BTW i was pretty angry when they cancelled signing of Feucht - He is not nazi and he is not racist for sure...... this tattoo was logo of football hooligans firm of which he was a part (in his youth age - as so much fighters from EU which are in UFC)

    He was involved in smashing up that neighbourhood though, pretty hard to defend him from that.

    I hate to be “that guy” But it seems to me that you said the reason they don’t sign a lhw, is because the fans are tired of them and then said the ufc should focus on middleweight and above which would include the lhw

    Ivan shrykov was signed but almost immediately got suspended by USADA for 2 years. UFC decided to release him.
