I dont get why they would do that? Maybe they should go to heavies for 6 just to make thats division crazy good and then do middle for 7 and which ever after that. Middleweight is so dead if they do that.

What person voted for heavys? That one has mirko, conture, fedor (soon), AA, Big Nog, and Tim Silva (though i dont like him).

They should do Heavies and Middleweight for Tuf 7. LHW is so stacked and now just add Silva.

The welterweights could take out the middleweights if you matched up ranks

Tough call between Middleweight and Heavyweight. HW is slowly getting better with the return of Couture and the acquisitions of Cro Cop and Nogueira as well as up-and-comers like Gonzaga and Kongo, can't forget Arlovski, but that's about it. MW has Anderson Silva & Franklin, and a couple nice midcarders with a chance to move up (Kendall Grove, Luigi Fioravanti). I think HW is the slightly weaker of the two because of the last couple years there (namely Sylvia's title reigns) and the disaster that was Heath Herring.

I guess it would be the MW , they have some good guy there but that all they are "good" in order for them to became a better division the need great fighters to compete or for current one to step up there game.

right now its definately MW, the fact that the are some top tier guys that arent part of the ufc i that weight class makes the division seem that muc weaker as a whole. there are a lot of almost there guys in the mw division, but few real title contenders.

MW for sure.

I think Okami is getting better. It would be nice to have Filho eventually. Henderson would be a great addition. It's getting better, but we'd need the WEC champ to come over and for Hendo to lose. Who knows, maybe our boy Eastman will be a force at MW???

Wandy is the missing link. Frickin hilarious.
