Fans have turned to mixed martial arts in large part because of the simplicity of its structure. With five champions in the UFC, there's little dispute of the best in each weight class. Where would be the intrigue if say, Ken Florian or Roger Huerta decided to fight at "super lightweight" instead of lightweight and avoid both Penn at 155 and Georges St. Pierre at 170?
These headache-inducing scenarios are no doubt similar to how boxing fans got tired of the absurd number of weight classes and pencil-pushing organizations in their sport.
But no, the commissions can't be content with their attempts to kill one sport; they have to try to step in and ruin the best thing to happen to combat sports in a generation while they're at it.LINK
