I don't see the need for a weight limit in the heaviest division. Most peoply above 265 won't be able to compete at elite level anyways, because their either too fat or have too many muscles and will gas in 30 seconds. And those who are able to compete should be allowed.

Well obviously most overseas promotions obviously agree with you because their heavyweight division doesn't have a limit. For some reason one of the exceptions to that rule seems to be One FC. Anyways I heard recently that Dream is out of bankruptcy and will now be back into it so that's one promotion that does that.

Its due to wrestling, this is not boxing!

All you need is a freak like hong man choi to get some form of top game and he will dominate guys like Cain and JDS via unstoppable takedowns and lay n pray.

So JDS and Cain arent really the best, some freak in size is.

(In boxing they separate the giant man from the talented HW boxer many times, but thats where the Giant mans greatest strength is, the clinch, he is slow but he is strong as hell and heavy as hell, so he can take you down, lay on you and squish you like a bug. (at the very least a giant man has a much better chance of winning a fight under MMA rules than under Boxing or even K1 rules.

The UFC dosnt want some huge dude to dominate via boring lay n pray. That would be bad for business.

That's certainly an interesting way of putting it and have never heard that explanation before. But for the UFC the answer is simple. UFC follows the Unified Rules which calls for weight classes so it's that simple.

Even if Hong Man Choi developed some kind of top game he still get smashed by every HW on the roster. Everyone. Akebono lost to Royce Gracie while in top position. I'm sorry but everythimg you said is wrong.
