    It would seem it runs in the family.

    I'm all for it in time, I just don't know if the talent is there yet or if the UFC is financially apt enough to accommodate enough fighters.

    15 pounds to 20 pounds per weightclass jump isn't exactly slight. 7 or 8 pounds can make a MASSIVE difference in a weight cut.

They a lot many fighters that have all the talent and work ethic to become great fighters but face a big disadvantage because of their natural size. They either have to choose between having a big size disadvantage or having too cut too much weight (the gap between 185 and 205 is awful for this). Both those options can lead to a much shorter and much less successful career. I definitely think there should be more weight classes. The more fighters that can fight at an ideal weight the higher better the quality of product in to the cage will be.
    That's MMA fans for you. They get off on hating fighters, you see alot more critiquing than you do praise. I find it pretty sad/funny.

    Lol I never thought I'd see the day where a Diaz showed such desperation...even if it meant being a paper champion.

    This looks good for the most part. There should be a 130. It should go 205, 220, SHW at the end. 230 is too big. It would deplete the 230+ division too much. There are LW that cut 20 pounds to get to 155. Someone at at 255 could easily could to 230.

    i think the only other division needed is one between lhw and hw. It's just too huge a gap and the crocops and pa berrys are left fighting at a huge disadvantage.

    He's right. they do need more divisions. No-where near where it would benefit him, but We've needed a 195lb div, and a 225 lb div for a long time now.

    Compared to, but alone he talks a lot. Nick talks far more shit, but Nate is far from a vow of silence.

    In the ring especially. If he spent the time cutting weight that he spends cutting excuses and talking shit, he might have lost to Faber already
