Terrible idea. Flyweight sucks, why bring in a division that's even worse? 98% of MMA fans don't give a rats ass about watching two grown men with the build of a 13 year old fight.

I've yet to see a Flyweight fight that was as bad as Kongo/Jordan or Brendan 'half-guard' Schaub vs Lavar Johnson.

Hmmm ok. I'll concede to that. I've never seen a FW bout that was as terrible as Schaub/Lavar.

You win this time...

Adding strawweight and a women's 145 would make it 11 divisions with 11 belts. There is probably going to be at least one or two interim belts at any given time making the number around 12/13........ and I thought 7 was going to be too many.

Wasn't there only 4 belts a just a few years ago? Where does it stop?

I thought HW, LHW, MW, WW and LW had all been around since like 2001 or sooner.

I'm not quite sure I understand your statement or your question. Yes, 11 divisions will probably be 12/13 belts factoring in for the interim belts, but it's not really as simple as you make it out to be. Should a Bantamweight world class fighter not be allowed to fight in the organization unless he can make a higher weight? He's world class at BW, he should be able to showcase his talents at that weight, and if he's good enough, be rewarded for his performance with a belt. I guess I'm just not seeing how it's confusing, in my mind, a guy who fights at 135 pounds shouldn't have to bulk to 155 pounds just to keep the number of belts low. They are all separate divisions with separate people fighting, do they not all deserve a chance?
