    Jeff was so undersized at HW is was a shame. He still accomplished a lot in MMA and in the grappling world.

    Trying to remember if middle weight was up to 195 back then (I might be mixing up when they had two weight classes <199 and 200+). Still imagine the size difference between Newton and Barnett (and arguably both equally skilled, although maybe back then Newton was more skilled, still pretty early for Barnett).

    Bob's fight with Josh Barnett took place in the UFCF (United Full Contact Federation). So I am guessing that either the UFCF didnt have weight classes, or the fight was a "free weight" fight.

    Nice to have known you, Monson.

    Looking at his wiki page and checked out Bob Gilstrap (who Monson had beat), remember seeing one of his fights on tape 15+ years ago. One funny thing I noticed was that Gilstrap lost to Josh Barnett and Carlos Newton a couple months apart. How do you go from fighting a 230+ guy to a 180lb guy? I this was well after the weight classes were established.

    Monson was definitely on a steep decline these past few years, really everything post-Cormier has been sub-par or poor showings.

    IMO, Monson at LHW in his prime is one of those "Damn, I wish we could've seen what he could've done" what-if prospects because there were so many occasions where he was just so undersized at HW. He's definitely a different cat, but I've always respected and thoroughly enjoyed his talents.

    *The article says 6 consecutive wins while Jeff's wikipedia page has him down for 6 consecutive losses.
