the last thing in the world the UFC needs right now is more weight classes, male or female.

Worst idea ever.

If anything, I'd like to see something between LHW and HW. That's about it. One of the things I prefer about MMA is that there aren't a billion weight classes.

there just isnt enough guys to do it, it wouldnt even be close to the timeframe of development for the BW and FW division when it took them a while to get things going but eventually the talent came along. There simply is just not a bunch of athletic SHWs available most of them take part in a league called the NFL and the UFC has a long way to go to get close to that payscale. Not according to DW but I am guessing it is still pretty off even for the guys getting "undisclosed handouts."

He looks drawn out at 265.

That's because he's a better fighter now who has had to step up with his competition. If he were to just train without having to worry about a 265 limit, he'd look just as good if not better.

Remove the weight limit. It's DUMB. Let the heavyweights come in at the weight they feel best at. Heavyweight should be unlimited. Fat men without skills will not be invited anyway, but really big guys who can fight will.

A real SHW division in the UFC is not happening, anyone believing that should be slapped in the face.
