    They had to get rid of the dudes first bro, to prove they're not sexist.

    WMMA is next.

    Have been to the US? There way fatter chicks than 145ers walking around. I'm ready for women's heavyweight.

    They should have combined the two classes. DJ vs Cyborg anybody?

    Get rid of weight classes and classes separated by gender.

    Everyone fights everyone.

    Once Cyborg beats Nunes and leaves for boxing or kickboxing or whatever, it will just die on the vine. She's the only reason for the division anyway.

    You answered your own question, there's only like 3 female featherweights, so scrapping that division doesn't really affect the budget in any way.

    Women divisions are a shit show there will be a time when UFC just stops pushing female fighters. But the truth is that UFC has too many fighters on the roaster and small guys got to go to make room.

    It’ll get there. By cutting a dead division on the men’s side they’ll avoid being called sexist when they cut some more deadweight on the women’s side.

    Cyborg is one of their better ppv draws and the fact that there's hardly anyone else in the division keeps the wage bill down.

    Because killing the FW division of WMMA doesn't make any room for a new division, while killing the 125 lbs opens up the possibility to start a 165 lbs division down the line, which will be more marketable.

    Hopefully the reason that they're matching Cyborg up with bantamweights and aren't signing any female 145 fighters, other than Megan Anderson, is that they plan to axe the devision after Cyborg leaves.

    Why did you move my thread to wasteland? That one MOD who consistenly deletes NEGATIVE threads about shallow 145 division/ Cyborg's PEDs, Cyborg fighting 135/125ers should be banished from sherdog long time ago. You can't ban all of us.
