The light heavyweight division has had a new look over the past year and a half or so. Since Jon Jones vacated his 205lb title, first Jan Blachowicz, and now Glover Teixeira, have claimed gold.

Light heavyweight has always walked a fine line between being one of the UFC’s most prominent divisions — and at times, one of its thinnest.
