    Yep, especially if the UFC continues to lose guys to Bellator, no need to water down the product anymore.

    If I remember and heard correctly, Dana said the UFC would NOT be adopting the new weight classes......although he said women would never fight in the UFC too

    Yup, and Woodley was fighting GSP! It was less than a year ago, Dana said no new womens divisions would be added any time soon......around 8 months later, we have 125 and 145!

    I don't think the UFC needs these new divisions in addition, but as an alternative they could work, but not 225.

    1 or 2 maybe.....225 KILLS both HW and LHW

    I just like the idea of divisions being split at 10lb intervals, I think it makes most sense and helps fighters fit into a sensible weight more easily.......and as I said previously, it would only add 1, maybe 2 divisions if we don't add 225......just no need for 225, and the divisions where growth would happen, are the deepest areas of talent, so it would do very little to thin them out.

    I think it thins divisions out tremendously for a period of time

    I really don't, 155 and 170 have plenty of talent to fill out 155, 165 and 175 divisions........plenty. 195 may be an issue to hold off on too, it's thin.

    55 or 65 could be ok....not both, one of those will be pretty thin.....175....I dunno, 170 isn't that great as it is

    There is close to 100 fighters at 155, it can easily cope with a bit of thinning out(not to mention the most talent heavy area in every org around the world).......175 would just effectively be the new 170 minus a few guys.

    I agree even 170 isn't looking that great right now...more divisions also means more weight class jumping and creating a mess, I hope they stay the same.
