I know you're going to tell me that fighting Marquez gets him more exposure etc, but it doesn't make it any less disappointing in such a talent rich division.
Division has some potentially exciting talent in it, but lets not go overboard. Bradley, Ortiz, Khan, Alexander would all shake up for some interesting fights, but they're only going to get more interesting a year down the line. They're no imperative for them to fight right now.

Khan has already beaten two top eight fighters in three fights in what you call a 'talent rich division' pretty decent, no?

Meanwhile, would you really not be excited by Khan/Marquez? People keep telling me Marquez is shot, but no-one can tell me when we saw this. So then you get 'well he's 37, so he must be shot'. Ok. Lets see how he looks against Diaz. If he's still a top ten P4P fighter, how can that possibly be a 'disappointing fight'?

Fair enough, Cobbler, you've convinced me. And I genuinely mean that.
