If 150lb men can use athleticism to overcome "behemoths" then they shouldn't be discredited when fighting each other.

And God knows they shouldn't be discredited relative to keyboard warriors.
Who said they should be? I asked if you would watch a division of men specifically undersized in a competition that is normally open weight? It would be just as competitive. No reason why it would be any less skilled (except there is, which you pointed out).

For the record I have no issue with the new weight classes except I think they should have taken more time in adding the FW.

ugh stop with the ******* weight classes dana, barley enough fighters in each class can get on a card as it is and no one wants more weight classes, thats why boxing went downhill too many weight classes and too many belts. I liked it when we had the WEC for 135,145,155 and 155 and the rest of the weight classes in the UFC, I don't even mind 135 and 145 in the UFC but everything else is too much.

No. Boxing always had 8 weight classes.

The UFC currently has 9.

It should stop there.

I've likely forgotten about more MMA then this dude's watched. What a joke.


He also fails to address the fact that OneFC doesnt even have a strawweight division as the current biggest promotion in Asia.
LOL you send me a neg with a message calling me a "child". I'm sorry it offends you that I don't give a shit about weight classes, records, names, organizations and just enjoy watching quality fights. I'm sorry you are too close minded to enjoy the sport of MMA because the people participating don't meet your size requirements. Sorry you can't appreciate watching two men go to war in a fight such as Boku vs Zoro because they don't look good on paper.
I could stomp my feet and send you a neg with an insult of my own but I'll go ahead and just move on and enjoy this forum and the sport of MMA the way I always have without restrictions. Sorry you can't do the same.

Boxing had 8 and then they added junior divisions and Cruiserweight as well as 108 and 112 for the quasi dwarves.


Thats why there is so many, every division has a halfway division.

If you are too small to fight Joseph Benavidez I don't think professional sports is the right career choice for you.

This is getting comical. Where do we draw the line?

No idea what's going on anymore with the UFC. Women's MMA division with like 3 fighters, flyweight division with fighters who should be trying to make Bantamweight, now they want a strawweight division...I literally only care about Featherweight and above. This is getting ridiculous now, I really doubt that there is a lot of talent around that kind of weight...
