Eying the Lightweight Landscape   [View Full Version]

Many believe it is the most exciting division in mixed martial arts.

But not many guys walking around at 155 pounds have truly devastating, one-punch knockout power like Chuck Liddell or Tim Sylvia. Not many of them can fire a high kick like Mirko Cro Cop or Gabriel Gonzaga. So, what makes the little fellas so exciting?

It can be summed up with three words: blazing, nonstop action.

Stated differently, a lightweight bout is like watching the other weight classes on fast forward. From lightning quick punches that come in rapid-fire succession to amazing scrambles to crazy transition jiu-jitsu, the little guys know how to thrill the crowd.

Who is the division kingpin? Who is next up to challenge for the title? And what marquee names round out the list of true division contenders?
