It's funny how people in the forum put the WW Div on the pedestal and trash the MW div yet half the top ten WWs are MWs who were begining to fall out the top ten at MW. (MW>WW ) The only reason the WW div is so full because people that can make MW cut 15 extra lbs just to avoid it because they would've rather fight GSP then Anderson Silva. Talk about how technical and skillfull the fighters are yet the #2 or #1 what ever you call Hendricks is one the most well known one trick ponys in the UFC. The welterweight div is nice and I like to watch them fight I am just breaking the bandwagon you guys made because I don't like it. The WW are not that technical they just do a whole rack of flashy movements that half the time result in nothing more than make them look like their doing something. It's not about how flashy your strikes and movement but wheter it's effective or not and the MWs are more effective. (End of story)
(The gap between MW and WW is 15lbs and plus some MWs cut alot to barely make MW so they really could have a much bigger weight advantage)
Johnny Hendricks couldn't even be a top ten MW
Rory Mcdonald as is wouldn't be a top ten MW unless in a couple years he made the right weight adjustments and skill changes.
GSP might do something there but I could see him getting manhandled by certain MWs
Matt Brown wouldn't even be a top 15 middleweight
Robbie Lawler couldn't buy a good win at MW
Jake Ellenberger is alright at times but his striking is flat out trifling most times and if you can work angles and fire straight down the pipe , mix and some hooks you destroy him on the feet. His wrestling can cause problems but at MW he'd be undersized.
