    how well does brian stann fair among that crowded weight class???

    i just dont see him doing well taking on the top competition of wanderlei, forrest, chuck, rampage, thiago silva, etc...

    maybe put him in there with houston or jardine. could be interesting...

    is this official? is 205 the only division that will be absorbed?

    brian stann probably cant hang with the top dogs, but he would make for some entertaining fights in the UFC.

    with bantam and feather weight classes + the fact WEC does not put on as many shows, this would make a lot of sense in terms of giving fighters in each class enough fights. however, there is great benefit in developing heavies in a place like the WEC before they have a go in the UFC.

    I dont think theres enough quality heavies to develop that arent sighned by other orgs. I think he will do alright I just wonder if they will give him a shot at the UFC title and call it a unification match or some shit. Would be a good title shot to waste time till the lhw division gets sorted out some more.
