No more.
The UFC has plenty especially with the addition of the flyweight division. Let's not turn into boxing.

If you had a gun to my head I would be more inclined to vote for Super heavy weight only because they just added 135 and 125 recently. Let's see some behemoths swing for the fences!!!

When the time is right to start a new division, it'll be obvious. Till then, no point messing around with something that isn't broken.

Neither.

8 is enough. That's the original 8 weight classes they had in boxing and it's enough for MMA.

I fully agree with this, but the talent pool doesn't support it yet. Probably not for a while, either.

I suspect that if stricter weight-cutting rules were put into place, we would see another division emerge.

But in the mean time, I'm all for the odd freakshow; bring on the UberHW's!

Open weight...Mark Hunt vs Chael Sonnen. Hunt winning by atomic butt drop.
Open weight tournament in UFC with the best of the best is a dream which will always stay in my dreams...

haha same here. It's just some simple fun. But yeah, there just isn't the serious talent pool/depth to support it, other than the freakshows & maybe 2 or 3 serious practitioners.
