ST-PIERRE <> SERRA
BURNS <> JOHNSON
-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.
