Theres a lot of talent out there.
We had 3 major WW champs in GSP Diaz and Condit and if you asked me before the UFC absorbed both promotions if either would have success I would have laughed, but not only did these two become ranked first and second contender but Benson in LW champ...
Cerrone isnt looking too bad either.
All this time I had seriously thought the UFC guys were on another level, but thanks to the UFC absorbing every promotion in sight I can see what an even level a lot of the guys really do fight on.
A lot of the Pride guys lost their luster in the UFC because of the scoring and shorter rounds making LnP viable to be used against them. They had to tighten up instead of letting it all go.
