Zuffa should have just kept WEC going. They could have had everything below LW in WEC.. and I'd watch both.

I propose all conversation regards the straw weights be presented in the smallest font possible.

115 x 2 = 230 => I want to see two of them against Big Foot.

What? Seeing the midgets isn't enough?
Now we will have to watch the mini midgets as well?????

UFC is derailing from what made it interesting,
these last 2 years seems that Dana & Co have lost their good judgement...

I don't see this happening because of the simple fact that the Unified rules doesn't cover a straw weight division. If you can't get a fight like this sanctioned in the US there's no point to it. To me it sounds like all straw weight fights would happen outside the US.

Gee I hope not. Featherweight (to some extent), Bantamweight, and flyweight have failed to catch on. This would just be an absolute joke. Should have kept WEC around at this point. The Jon Fitch's of the world are being cut/going to be cut, and yet they're looking to add this?

I like the idea, but only if they sign a lot of fighters, and not cut half of them after 2 fights.
