Welterweights..damn UFC needs heavyweights i was hoping for that

their just isn't enough athletic 230+ lb fighters

 

it seems like the UFC signs and releases a half dozen or so HW's every year

 

maybe 1 or 2 of those fighters stay with the company for a year or two

 

and maybe 1 out of those actually crack the top 15

^ This.  People have complained about so many seasons featuring lightweights, welterweights and middleweights.  Those are the weightclasses that so many fighters can cut too.  With TUF you also see a lot of guys competing up one or even two classes because of all the weight cuts in such a short period of time.  Countless TUF seasons featuring middleweights was loaded with natural welterweights.  TUF welterweights loaded with natural lightweights.

I think the avg male in fighting shape falls into welterweight, followed by lightweight and then your middleweights

Yeah i know there aren't a lot of em out there but it'd be nice for ufc to try i mean 90% of the guys on the show won't stick around the ufc anyway might as well try to find talent where you need it most

I doubt there are any half-decent HWs out there who have not been signed up by an organisation already.  Look at the first season that featured HWs - it was won by a LHW (Shad) and the only other fighter who stayed in the UFC any length of time was also a LHW (Jardine).  The rest of the HW's went 1-11 in the UFC between them.  Second season gave us Nelson (who was already well established), plus Schaub and Mittrione.  So it's not exactly been a gold mine.

Definitely.  Lightweight and welterweight are the deepest talent pools in the world followed closely by middleweight where a lot of guys aren't really any bigger than your modern WCC welterweight.
