    UFC; Getting better-a look at the Champions.

    Slowly but surely they will be crowned. Of course not without its contreversy;

    UFC now has some champions but some are marred with scandal (what else is new)

    We now have a new Middleweight champion, or should we say an old one. Matt Hughes is Champion but is he the legit Champion. Now that BJ Penn has lost his court case he's the main champion but did Matt Hughes fight the best in order to win it? IMO he has fought the best but the Shadow of BJ will always be there.

    Welterweight? Here's the funny thing, UFC probably has the best talent minus a Sakuraba in this weight class but no Champion. A tournament should be held and here's the list: Evan Tanner, Matt Lindland, Frank Trigg, Phil Baroni, Jeremy Horn, Vernon White, Marvin Eastman, Rich Franklin.

    Light Heavy; Randy Couture, no comment needed a true Champion.

    Heavy Weight; Frank Mir, who is injured and doesn't look like he has any viable opponents. They're all in Pride.

    So what about the Light weights? I say screw a tournament and make Yves Edwards the Champion. Then they can go ahead and have a tournament for the #1 contendership and here's your contenders: Karo Parysian, Richard Crunkilton, Hermes Franca, Josh Tompson.

    We need champions as we go into a new error of MMA with Fox and Spike TV readily embracing the MMA sport. We need them now and without contreversy.

    I think Yves and Hermes already fought. If it is the match I'm thinking of: Snooze fucking fest. If I recall I also thought hermes should have gotten the nod.

    That would be awesome. These are the guys that I love to watch.

    Meanwhile, most of the welterweights just make me feel tired.

    **** Yves, give it to Genki, on principle.

    Is this a real post? Half those names are for the wrong weight-classes.

    I also thought Hermes should have gotten the nod against Yves.

    Odd so do I, and he was FAR more entertaining. Don't always expect that coming from a BJJ guy. :D

    Yeah, middleweight and welterweight names should be switched.
