I get what some guys are talking about when they say that it may be hard to make a star out of 125. But I think with the right promotion, things could twist and turn a little. So long as they're not using PPV to promote the champs, but free events, where guys get a chance to see the fighter's showcase their skills. If they put a few big names fighter on an FX, Fox, or FuelTV card and stack it with their top FW, BW, and FlW I think we'd be able to see some stars in the making. I mean how long has it taken for the 155lb division to FINALLY get the respect they deserve? When I first started watching MMA, 155 was the smallest things got, and it was weird to think of anyone smaller. Hell, anyone remember when they even took away the division for a while because the UFC was actually losing money over them? That was crazy. But with the right promotion they've finally been able to put them in the spotlight, and even then the division still isn't where it necessarily needs to be, but we now have guys like BJ Penn and Clay Guida which are fairly recognizable by your regular Joe. I think the right guys, under the right promotion could really result in a star. I think that's something they need to focus on with the FW and BW as well. As awesome as Jose Aldo is, he's still relatively unknown to the casual fan it seems like. A guy like him, put on the right card with enough spectators could really blow up and become huge.
So... Since Machida is all, "I drink my own Urine for vitamins!" is it okay for my to be like, "I eat my own shit for nutrients!!"????
