| | mix and match weight classes
after seeing pride fighters in the octagon. you really get to see the size differences in fighters. for example forrest and shogun. nakamura and machida. chucky and wandy. etc etc. it makes people wonder if these pride middleweights(205) should actually be in ufc's middleweight division. and if pride's 185ers should actually be if ufc's 170 division.
if you think about it japanese people are naturally smaller than the rest of the globe. so non japanese fighters were actually fighting smaller competition. and by the looks of it, it looks like japanese fighters really dont cut weight but stay at natural weight, or even bulk up. and the proof of this is, most of the japanese fighters that came from pride dropped from 183 to 170.
this is just my opinion from what i observe. i dont really know if they do.
but if you can match up fighters in the weight class YOU think they should be in what match ups would you like to see. or what weight class would you like these fighters to be in
personally my lists goes:
135: kid vs beebe
145: faber vs gomi
155: bj vs mach
170: gsp vs kang hendo vs hughes
185: wandy, shogun, manhoef, randleman .
205: anderson, silva cro cop, fedor
you get what im trying to get at right
