They consistently put on great fights, and the division is quickly becoming stacked with contenders. The weight class is under the rule of Demetrious Johnson, but many young competitors are jockeying for position in the division. Guy read news >>

We let off last time with the welterweights. Now, the "Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series moves onto the lightweight division. The lightweight division is a shark tank that is stacked with talent from top to bottom.

The UFC has always focused on keeping that the lightweight division stacked. In fact, the UFC signed a lot of guys read news >>

Nick Diaz's upcoming showdown against middleweight great Anderson Silva at UFC 183 won't mark the first time Stockton's favorite son has experimented with his weight. Diaz fought above his usual 170 pounds twice before in his Strikeforce days, handily beating both Frank Shamrock and Scott Smith in heavier catchweight contests. So he can attest to the positives that come from skipping the sport's dreaded weight cut. "I had less problems with energy," Diaz said on a Thursday conference call. "Like read news >>

We started the series with the heavyweights, and now we move on to the light heavyweights. That's right—The Beaten Path continues its "Prospects the UFC Should Sign" series. The light heavyweight division is in need of bodies due to the small number of fighters in its ranks. To keep matchups fresh and provide different faces, the UFC needs to look at inking some 205-pounders. The UFC already snagged a couple of guys off my radar recently in Corey Anderson, Antonio Carlos Jr. and Hans Stringer. T read news >>

And if you notice the acronym’s similarity to another term, so does the term’s inventor, Bubba Jenkins. “It’s similar to the spelling of ‘maps’ on purpose, because it’s about trying to get to a certain place,” Jenkins said in read news >>

Now that Quinton Jackson has abandoned ship, top Bellator light heavyweight attraction Tito Ortiz is running out of viable opponents. He already blew away Alexander Shlemenko in a (cough) "super fight" last May, and followed that up by pushing around UFC "Psycho" Stephan Bonnar. So how about a light heavyweight showdown against Muhammed Lawal? Probably not going to happen, according to the former Strikeforce 205-pound kingpin, because Ortiz is a "bitch" and knows he can't win. "King Mo" talks to read news >>
