I love the WEC man, they always put up an entertaining show. I don't recall ever being bored with any event ive watched since it started. So yeah, still matters to me of course.
I agree. To me, Zuffa has dropped the ball on several fighters that could have made the WEC way more exciting. You've got guys out there with established names who clearly can't beat the top comp @ 155 in the UFC. I'm talking about guys like Clementi, Guillard, Franca, Joe Stevenson, Marcus Aurelio, etc. etc. All these guys carry a name and all could provide exciting fights at 155 in the WEC. There's several potential matchups there that could take several years to sort out the rankings. Not to mention the other talent outside of the Zuffa banner.
You build up the 155 lbs division with some names and people will automatically get to know the lighter weight guys who fight before them simply by watching the other fights leading up to the main event.
