  1. When I was growing up and training martial arts, it was about defeating opponents larger than you. Only boxing and wrestling had weight classes. If you could not defeat a larger opponent, then you knew you could lose on the street and it wasn't good enough. Sure, he's great, but if he came up against someone taller and bigger, with at least some fighting skill, he'd get destroyed most likely.

  3. DJ needs to go up next weight class. Not many care about division that has no movement. Wouldn't be surprised that DJ is greedy and wants to beat Silvas winning streak by fighting fighters he knows he can beat. Kinda lame of him.

  5. 2:122:50 DJ, he was giving you all the props in the world and asked if you wanted to go up a weight class. He didn't jump to conclusions, he asked if you wanted to move up after giving you all the props in the world. No comment to a perfectly decent question. That's why you'll remain at the pay scale you're at. You don't know how to get fans excited for a fight. It's not the UFC. It's not the media. It's you.
