Mike Bohn Joins Press Row
Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Sherdog.com contributor Tomasz Marciniak.
Rafael dos Anjos captured the UFC lightweight crown and the 155-pound throne with a flawless victory over Anthony Pettis at UFC 185. However, history hasn't been kind to its lightweight kings, as the depth and talent of the division has made it difficult to reign. Breen and Bohn discuss the tempestuous and thrilling nature of the 155-pound division, its unique story, why it has been so hard for fighters to dominate and whether or not the shark tank-esque nature of the lightweight class makes it more difficult to create turn champions into marketable stars.
Breen and Bohn also discuss major “What if?” moments in lightweight history, including whether or not B.J. Penn's career actually benefitted from the notorious draw in his rematch with Caol Uno, how long it will take for a UFC 155-pound champ to surpass three successful title defenses and much, much more.
