until some 350 lb monster comes in and starts beating people with hammerfists , people will say its unfair.

there just isn't enough guys who weigh over 300lbs that could realistically compete. Even if you removed the cap, those guys probably wouldn't last 1 5 minute round without gassing.

Brock and Reem make the weight. Those guys are massive.

Cain barely remains healthy enough to defend the one belt. What in Sam Hill makes you think he could possibly gain a 2nd belt without sustaining injury?

So, my buddy just sent me a link to this article. It's got to be a joke. I don't think Dana would say what he was quoted saying.

http://tapnapsnap.com/ufc-get-bigger...vision-coming/

For those who were wondering if the UFC’s plan on division expansion was a one way street that only led to lower weight classes, a very surprising thing was said today by UFC’s president Dana White while speaking to Brendan Schaub on his podcast. White spoke on the possibility of the UFC bringing in a Super Heavyweight division. On “The Fight and The Kid” podcast, White had this to say:

"We’re actually working on bringing in member of the American Sumo Wrestling Federation, Which I said wouldn’t happen for a long time,We are also thinking of special events where all weight classes could fight against each other, so a 125 pound guy could be fighting a 325 pound monster, that would be epic."

I don't buy it. Not one bit.

I just saw this too. Came on Sherdog to expect a shitstorm and nothing. This has to be fake.

http://tapnapsnap.com/ is down, I think the site got hacked.

I'm not sure, it's on their twitter too. Makes me a little nervous they're pulling this far for something that's either taken way out of context (like exhibition fights at a UFC Fan Expo) or a joke.

It's on twitter and facebook because probably have a 'push' functionality which pushes out their web stories to facebook and twitter.

This gets posted, and suddenly the website is down. They got hacked.

Ah, I don't understand twitter so I'll take your word for it. I am relieved.

Probably the same people who hacked Fedor's website and made it say he was joining the UFC and fighting Brock Lesnar for the first match
