It ain't gonna be easy.

And that is the main thing I disagree with you on. The rankings are great and better compiled than any other I know of.

But without prestige the championship policy is no more than a novel idea. I'd love for the day an interviewer says "so you've picked up a belt, but to be the real champion you must face fighter a". That day just isn't today.

We can but hope though and this is a step I. The right direction.
