Good point.

I think they would have to fight each other once in a while, but I don't think unification would work, as that would counteract the whole point in the first place. Just have them fight, and that's it.

People complaining on internet forums isn't something people running multimillion dollar organizations actually care about, believe it or not.

Two champs would bring a lot of excitment to the WW, MW, and LHW divisions especially.

More meaningful fights at each weight class would be fine by me.
