No it doesn't but a more common weight gives you more talent to choose from. Strawweight simply cannot support a full division in the UFC.
And - by the by - I was going to respond in this thread anyway. That's why I was reading the bloody thing to start off with. You were incidental.
Ok, I'm sorry then for my assumption. I do disagree that we can't have a full strawweight division with high level fighters still. We have Olympic and Division 1 wrestlers that could make the 115lbs limit and other athletes in other sports as well. I simply disagree that we can't have top level athletes at that weight.
I realize I went a little too far yesterday with the "not true fans" stuff and I apologize again. Sometimes I am annoying and get carried away. Hopefully we can move forward without back and forth. I apologize for my part in the bickering.
