The heavy weight division

I think there there needs to be a divition in between light heavy weight and heavy weight...it seems silly to have 223 guys fighting 265 guys

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

I agree the HW division should be divided. All the other divisions have only a 10-20 pound difference, where the HW is 205 to 265, that's 60lbs. It should be 205 to 225lbs as HW and anything more than 225lbs is a Super HW. And what happens now if a person is more than 265lbs?

well lets see, if he is over 265, he cant fight like any other fighter that doesn't make weight.

And if you weight 225 you can cut down to 205 easy lol

if you cut down to 225 then your an idiot because you don't need to cut and you can just keep training and keep your body healthy.

Plus untill the Heavyweight's get more competitive i doubt they're going to break up the division.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I knew it was up there.. how would they work it with him.. no way can you ask him to drop that kind of weight and he'd destroy the other super heavys out there in natural atheltic abality and power... pound for pound he will out muscle anyone in his weight class..
