ST-PIERRE <> SERRA
BURNS <> JOHNSON

Notes:

-I found a site that hosts super large images so you guys won't be subjected to squinting at this thing anymore.  Instead, you can scroll through a giant mural!  If the new host is too manly for you, click here for the flickr format.

-The graph does a great job demonstrating the logjam at the top of the division.  Assuming Georges St-Pierre gets through Dan Hardy (and that's not exactly a leap of faith), no one really stands as a fresh challenger.  Unless Paul Daley gets through Josh Koscheck, that is.

-It's interesting that Dana White has been dropping hints that B.J. Penn could see a more traditional jump to welterweight after "cleaning out" the lightweight division.  Since, you know, GSP might be taking his second lap around 170. 

-I love that Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves have taken unique career progressions since their first fight.  They share one common opponent since their 2006 encounter.  That is?

-Paul Daley's KO over Dustin Hazelett isn't represented on the graph.  Why?  He failed to make weight.  Them's the breaks.

-The lack of loops in this division freaks me out.
