Well yeah, like i said that is the knock on effect derived from the existence of the alphabet titles, the diluting of what the legacies of the greatest fighters of the era might potentially be had they not been around. But they don't directly dilute a legacy so to speak, a fighter actually only achieves his ultimate legacy by beating the men he does, and comprising a resume from that. But i understand what you are getting at, the only thing we can be certain of is this, the alphabet soup doesn't help in purist's terms.
