Bring on the Feathers

Uriah Faber and Jens Pulver both won in impressive fashion Wednesday night setting up an inevitable clash between the two fighters. Now, if you're like me and have no idea what the hell the Versus network is and had to wait to see the fights here on MMAFEVER it raises the question; when are we going to see the top featherweights in the "big show"? No offense to the WEC but it is still the college football of MMA. Good fights with tough guys on their way to something bigger and for the 145 pounders looking to make that step right now it is literally to something bigger. With the UFC lightweight division, just 14 months into its rebirth, already stacked with incredible fighters putting on great fights what's the hold up? Bring on the feathers! Jens has a solid fan base, Faber's being touted as one of the top pound for pounders in MMA, could there be a better time? Come on Dana the UFC fans are ready to embrace the 145'ers. Boxing fans have been doing it for years. You don't want the boxing fans to beat us do you?
P.S. you could probably squeeze another TUF season out of it.


  1. Another internet writer who doesn't know the difference between "you're" and "your."

    "...Now, if your like me and have no idea..."

    Oy Vey.

  2. Thanks anonymous, next time post then Mickey's.

  3. I wouldn't be against adding Featherweight and SuperHeavyweight.

  4. Cheers Riley and well done!

    The best weight classes for seeing skilful MMA is in the lower divisions from 170 on down from my experience.

    The fight are quicker and the transitions these fighters make on the ground requires a rewind button to fully appreciate what just happened before your eyes.

    I believe Urijah made such a move in his recent WEC fight that had the commentator salivating on his monitor.

    The 155ers have come back to the UFC recently and maybe there will be an extension of the weight classes high and low to include Feathers and the Super's as Tim mentioned.

    Regardless, I'd watch two fat chicks goin' at it in a supermarket so my opinion is strictly biased for fighting in any weight division of the UFC.

    Good stuff Riley!
