I'm 5'7'' 142 lbs with like >3% body fat. I'm not big looking at all. I can't beef up like most guys, I'm built like a rabbit. I don't eat as much protein as I should to be able to look like someone like Sherk or Hughes, I look more like Kid Yamamoto, but he's a little more ripped than me I think.

I say YES PLEASE to a UFC featherweight division!!!!

Just cuz you haven't heard of any doesn't mean there isn't any. What would be the reason there are no good 145-pound fighters? I don't understand why you said that for no good reason?
You misread me once again.

I said there are a lot of good people in the division, just not much who fight in it.

That makes no sense, if they're in the division....are they not fighting???? How can there be good fighters in a 145 pound division that don't fight?

There are good fighters in the division, don't read "a lot of" but there are not much people who fight at 145 in the world of MMA. All I know is Yamamoto, Urijah Faber, Gilbert Melendez, Jeff Curran, thats about it.

My personal feeling is that 5 weight classes is enough.

LW
WW
MW
LHW
HW

What we really need are more talented fighters in the UFC. I'm getting concerned that the talent is getting spread around in different organizations (IFL, K1, KOTC, Bodog, etc).

I feel that less organizations would be good for the sport.
Otherwise this MMA spike in popularity will fade just as fast as the Texas Hold'em craze did.

FW (Featherweight)
LW (Lightweight)
WW (Welterweight)
MW (Middleweight)
LHW (LightHeavyweight)
HW (Heavyweight)
SHW (SuperHeavyweight)

Yeah 155 is close enough. Eat a f#@$ing taco and you can make 155 if you fight at 145. No big deal.

I think if they made a 145 division it would take away a lot of good fighters from the 155 pound division ,so you'd have one okay division and one pretty weak division.I'm sure eventually they'll have 145 pound champion in the UFC ,but I hope that's not untill a long ass time later.I mean they just brought back the 155 pound division it's still way too soon to bring in the 145 pound division.

Well then no I didn't misread you man. Just because you haven't heard of any doesn't mean they don't exist man like I said the first time. And I'm not saying your wrong cuz I don't know, but are you sure Melendez is a featherweight???

this would be sick
