    Sites are reporting that his first fight will be against Jeremy Stephens. What happened to giving the Tuf champ a can to start off his career. That will be a very tough fight for Efrain. No way can he stand with Stephens. I think this is a mistake.

    Obviously they don't want a repeat of Koscheck's early career. There's a reason that guy is still so hated, even though his standup is obviously much improved.

    which is why I can't understand why the WEC dissolved the heavier weight classes....

    UFC is now such an elite org that the room to grow talent is shrinking.

    Zuffa is trying to use the WEC to open up lighter weight classes that aren't covered by UFC.

    "UFC is now such an elite org that the room to grow talent is shrinking."

    WEC fighters dont get enough exposure to warrant a monetary investment by Zuffa. The fact that the UFC is such an elite org means that they dont necessarily have to pay to develop young talent. Everyone knows the UFC has the primetime show and the primetime money...so the UFC knows they won't have a problem signing up and coming stars.

    Guys like Mousasi, Alvarez and Overeem are perfect examples.

    If Mousasi has a good showing on the next Affliction card, then you can expect the UFC to begin serious talks with him.
