I agree. In days gone by, up and coming fighters were matched with other up and coming prospects and this made for some good fights. Nowadays fighters are so obsessed with keeping their o that this doesn't really happen as much. It's not all down to the fighters though. A couple of losses on your record affects your chance of a title shot more then it used to so fighter are more worried about losing.
