Re: Do alphabet titles dilute fighters legacies and punish them in the long run?
It's the alphabet belts combined with the excess of weight divisions that really devalues things.
I don't think it necessarily dilutes fighters' legacies. It depends on who is rating the legacy. It has tended to destroy the concept of a world title though.
It just gets ridiculous.
Some of the younger fans say things like "____ an ATG ? You must be smoking crack. He's only won four world titles !"
