There are hardly any featherweights that fight, therefore the UFC gets them to fight at 155, Griffin used to be below 155 ya know, fighting Urijah Faber and all.

It's hard enough watching 155 lbs go at it. There's not much of an interest in watching two 5'1" fighters go at it.

Maybe at the circus?

In the future I can see more weight classes like a 145 and a superheavy weight, but right now five is good. There just needs to be more exposure first, that is why the UFC got rid of the 155 divison because they were losing money and it was their weakest divison. But now with the new exposure they might open new divisions.
