Re: Who had better lightweights WEC or UFC before the merger?
Real fans know that Strikeforce could rival the UFC for HW and fighters in general but lacking the same depth. Likewise, real fans knew that the WEC had a number of tasty fighters that could easily compete in the UFC - Aldo, Henderson, Pettis, Cerone etc
Who is better is a difficult question. Henderson is the champ and Pettis/Cerrone will determine the next contender. On the flipside I think Henderson lost his last fight to Edgar and Diaz beat the **** out of Cerrone while Guida bum ****ed Pettis.
Our only question should always be who is the champion by way of beating the best fighters out there. At present that is Benson Henderson.
