    It’ll be intertesting to see this plays out. A lot of the guys on the list are not WW’s anymore. Stevenson has fought as low as FW I believe.

    There are going to be some big size differences between guys like Stevenson and say Zack Cummings (Who has fought as high as 205). Quick count of that roster and I think at least 9-10 are 155ers or smaller.

    I’m excited to see some seasoned pro’s get another shot at the UFC.
