    No.

    I'm fine with the weight classes that already exist.

    I don't see the need for more.

    235+ ? What if you weigh 230 lbs? You have to cut to 205 or gain 5 pounds?

    It should be:

    135
    145
    155
    165
    175
    185
    195
    205
    205+

    (IE: getting rid of 125, splitting 170 into 165 and 175, and adding 195), and:

    115
    125
    135
    135+

    for WMMA.

    165 175 is great, but there is just not enough talent to create 235. also no need to change 185 to 190

    No need for anything between HW and LHW. They are dogshit already.

    I would like to see

    115
    105
    95

    Lots of skill there

    MMA is not going to draw enough top tier athletes with the current pay structure.

    If that changes, these weight classes would make sense but it's not going to help given the current conditions.

    Yep. And I'd favour Anderson.

    There are literally two featherweights in UFC's 145 division, and one of them (Anderson) just lost to a bantamweight (who lost to the other featherweight already). Cyborg and Anderson are walking around 170 anyway, so if you open it up, you may be able to get 8-10 fighters in what would essentially be a heavyweight division for women.

    I like this 100%

    I also like the idea of doing it all at once and making tournament style so fighters can "bop" their way into the initial belts.
