    So people want to get rid of probably the most interesting division in the flyweights? Yet we want to keep around guys like Roy Nelson and Overeem? Neither of those guys can hold a candle in talent to the likes of Johnson, Benny and Dodson. So lets keep those glorified punching bags and get rid of the 3 more talented fighters on the planet...

    Sounds fair to me.

I think there are alot of TUF fighters who sign with the company after the show who are pretty much dead weight, I think they could trim alot of those guys.
    I highly agree. In the beginning of TUF, quite a few fighters were great talent. Nowadays, it's maybe at most 3 fighters who have any potential.

    According to Dana, "some guys, when they lose, are at a point in their career", kinda implies that he doesn't see Okami going anywhere in the UFC MW division. How about guys like Frank Mir? He's been brutalized in his last few fights, and is clearly never going to compete for a title again. He makes some of the highest in the company. I believe he is at a point in his career that he needs to be forced to retire.

    I disagree, I find Dodson and Mighty Mouse to be very entertaining. And Dodson's fight on this card was great too. And Renan Barao has been very entertaining, can't wait to see him vs Cruz. I would much rather see that than some of these big guys (not saying okami) that gas over and over again, then the fight becomes boring.

    Consolidate some divisions. You need a lot more fighters to fill more divisions. 125 is not needed. 135 could go too if you ask me. Drop featherwight down to 140 which would push some 145ers up and some down. I think most fans would rather see a good middleweight like Okami on a card than a couple of little gnats chasing each other in a circle for 15 minutes.

    When you own your own organization you get to run it how you want. And yes, it is ultimately about what's going to make them money. Okami, while an excellent fighter is not a top draw like the others someone mentioned, regardless of their records.
