There are plans to add 125, but 115 is hardly even considered a serious weight class.

It has almost as much legitimacy as KOTC's Cruiserweight, and Junior Welterweight weight classes.

I don't think anyone that is not legally considered a dwarf would be significantly outsized if they moved up to 125 anyway. I remember when Pacquaio was a young kid and tried to kill himself to make that 112-116ish weight, now this guy all the weight up to 147. I think Saamdet could make 125 as well.

UFC doesn't even have a flyweight division and youre already proposing a strawweight division?? Let's allow the BW and FW divisions to grow and expand before we even consider adding even more classes.
We dont even know how fans will respond to BW and FW, so let's not talk about lighter classes just yet. Watching 135 lbs fighters is pushing it as is, and I'm not sure how interesting it will be to watch scrawny 115 lbs skeletons fighting each other. Also, a big negative about boxing is that it has so many weight classes that it makes the sport confusing and harder to follow; and we all know that the UFC should learn from boxing and not repeat its mistakes.

you cannot compare adding more weightclasses to suit the different sizes of fighters, with additions of weight classes in between, making a weight class every 5 pounds, with 5 world champions in each weight.

LOL you literally just said that i cant compare adding weight classes to...adding weight classes
My point still stands, which is that more weight classes leads to more confusion and more diluted cards. It's a slippery slope from adding Flyweight and Strawweight to adding weight classes in between the current ones and becoming similar to boxing.

Boxing was distinguised by the Original 8 weight classes, before that was ruined by sanctioning bodies.

MMA right now has 7....I don't think a 125lb division is out of the question. There's a lot of talent there, and who knows who could stop Benavidez is he isn't 6 inches shorter than all of his opponents.
