There's no doubt that lightweight offers a wider variety of and more competitive rivalries than welterweight at the moment. But it's still Amanda's natural fighting weight, and occasionally stepping down for great fights is a much better idea than to just abandon welter. And as I was trying to say - welter can be a fun division, too, which has more to offer than just R&R. And it's not like I turned down loads of offers from elite lightweights because I was afraid they might beat Amanda.
I mean, you're essentially accusing me of ducking girls like Palicki or Biel from a different division (and at the same time implying that whatever Amanda's done at welter isn't particularly noteworthy), and I'm a little hurt by that because all my fcba-manager career I've always tried to accept every challenge and focus on interesting fights instead of petty managemental manoevres. Heck, it was certainly not my fault that Theron/Righetti didn't happen in 2009 when Amanda first came to welter. I'm really not sure why this had to turn into such a lengthy discussion, though.
