already after only a few weeks but I felt compelled to throw out a post.
Personally I think the sport is in need of adding (1) new weight class so there won't be a 20 pound spread between middle weight and heavyweight.
I threw this together a year or so back when I realized that given 4 to 5 years there would be a crapload more fighters.
Also I think this solves the heavyweight problem as there are not many talented fighters that weight over 235 pounds walking weight and so much talant at 225 walking weight.
I say a 10 pound difference in the divisions would work
HW- mackdaddy division
Think about a heavyweight division stacked with fighters like Rampage, Griffin, Machida, Maybe Liddell, Timmy, Gonzaga, Nogueira, all together.
And every division could have only a 10 pound spread with merely 1 division being added.
Keep in mind although I mentioned current fighters above this is only my consideration another 3-6 years down the road when there are a crapload more fighters in MMA and the names were just thrown out there to give a visual of the transformation of the HW- Mackdaddy division
I might catch hell but I want to see what actual educated MMA fans think about weights and future changes.
