I hope they don't add any other weight classes ever. I'd favor the UFC opening a women's division (openweight?) over them starting another weight class.

If it was up to me, an open weight.

-Super-HW doesn't have talent
-Cruiserweight between HW and LHW would kill HW and leave it pretty empty
-I have honestly no idea what's going on on straw weight but surely there can't be that much 115 lbs MMA fighters out there

Neither division has the depth and the fall of guys like Lesnar and Carwin has clearly illustrated the lack of need for a CW division.

As much as I support the lighter weightclasses, I can't see anything smaller than 125 being very entertaining.. Practically borders on midgets fighting.

Cruiserweight would destroy the talent pools of LHW and HW, would probably just end up a gong show of missing weight.

Super HW would be like two guys in the whole division, and god help you if they ever fight at altitude.

I still support the Cruiserweight division. I think that it serves the purpose of keeping the odds more honest personally. Heavyweight is the only division that has that much of a discrepancy between the high weight and low weight. 206-265? Every other weight class is defined by 20 to 10 lb increments. I realize that there aren't that many people fighting in between right now, but if it were instituted it would be filled with upcoming talent and eventually lead to more entertaining evenly matched fights in my opinion.

any of them would be entertaining and most of us would watch it regardless of what division was added. I don't think it's at all necessary though, in future when there are more prospects i'm thinking 125, 135, 145, 155, 170, 185, 205, 235, 285.

Yeah I would if it were real, but that would never be approved by a commission so it'd have to happen in a country other than the USA and the UFC would never do it. It's some serious WWE type shit, i think WWE have actually put on 2 midgets vs a 240lb guy.

Why do you choose Ron Sparks?
