Fighters from other organizations coming into the UFC and making noise

I remember when there was a meme on BE that everyone fighting in Strikeforce was overrated and the WEC 155'ers were considered 2nd rate.

At 155 lbs the WEC's Ben Henderson has smashed Jim Miller and all other comers and is now challenging Frankie Edgar for the title.

At 170lbs Strikeforce's ex Welterweight champ Nick Diaz is fighting for the interim Welterweight Championship against Condit after brutalizing former WW and LW champ BJ Penn

At 205lbs or 185lbs the former Strikeforce LHW Champ Dan Henderson (who just defeated ex UFC LHW champ Shogun) is waiting in the wings for a title shot or a number 1 contenders bout

At Heavyweight, Strikeforce's Overeem will be competing for the championship against Junior Dos Santos fresh off the smashing of former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar (who the haters so confidently predicted would expose the hulk like "can-crusher 'Alistair Overeem)

Not bad for a bunch of overrated dudes not fighting top competition.

And for all the motherfuckers who used to claim that all these Strikeforce champs were being given tailor made opponents and would be exposed once they came to the UFC, I implore you to watch Nate Diaz before the 3rd round of his fight w/ Cerrone. That's my message to you.
