The most exciting division in boxing for years was 135lb division. Ever hear of Roberto Duran or Boom Boom Mancini? Anyone that does not appreciate excellence, regardless of the size is a fool. Everyone knows what a snoozer heavyweight fights can be, they just don't have the stamina that lighter weight fighters have. An American dominated the 118lb division about 20 years ago, so it's not just for non-americans either.
I don't see how mma would be any different.

hurrakane212 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Actually

I heard Dana White say on one of the UFC shows (When the commentator was talking about how it's difficult to drop 15lbs to go down in weightclass, it may have been a discussion of Sean Sherk) that he wants more weight divisions like boxing and he wants lighter than 155 weight divisions eventually.

Really wish I could cite when I heard it and exactly what was said so I don't sound like a rumormongering tool...~Nathan

One of the problems with the little guys in boxing is that they are so small that they don't have the power to the other fighter out. That's why so many low weight class fights end in decissions. Nobody likes to see an MMA fight go the distance and then have some fat judges decide the winner. Hell, you can pack in two good fights that end in a KO in the time it takes to fight a full fight to a decision.

How about we get a featherweight division but instead of having them fight each other, we have them both fight a pack of pitbulls. Now that would be an exciting fight.

I heard that but think maybe it was a commentator saying it. That as the UFC expands, and they get more fighters that the weight classes will become smaller and have a lot more of them. Like boxing.

I do like the energy of the lighter fighters, but when they get 3 clean punches to the chin and the fighter doesnt go down its a little

but in boxing the most exciting had alwasy been the heavyweights and not everyone enjoys watching smaller people fight IMO i like it the way it is so that people cant be too big or too small making it look more like a legitimate sport rather than a freak show

because anyone who weighs number 155 is embarrasing and should get themselves some weight gainer.
