    They weight gap between Heavyweight and Light-Heavyweight is huge, another weightclass should be introduce.

    I agree. Reduce light heavy to 200, cruiserweight 225, heavyweight unlimited.

    Remove the Flyweight division and introduce a Cruiserweight division.

    They don't even have enough quality guys for LHW and HW, it would water both down even more.

    If they're changing anything at all in the near future, it's 155, 165, 175. There is a ton of talent in between 155-175

    Cause we don't need like 30000 different weight classes like boxing. Add 165, 225, and get rid of the HW cap

    Correct.

    If we're going to have a cruiserweight championship, then we must get a intercontinental champion too!

    Admittedly, I should've used a smaller, cruiserweight wrassler GIF.

    Don't you mean "introduced", with a 'd' at the end?

    Well, ultimate warrior was an intercontinental champion too, not a cruiserweight.

    That one I knew, from before I stopped watching wrasslin'. I couldn't tell you who was a cruiserweight AND Intercontinental Champ. Eddie Guerrero perhaps?

    By the way, the belt should be made of plexiglass and be transparent too, so everyone knows it's not the real title...but that's just my personal opinion.

    I was thinking he meant a weight class in between 186-205 and 205+. So he thinks we need a 186-195, 196-205, then HW...I think.

    i dont think a cruiserweight division would really kick off anyway in MMA. LHW right now isn't that good same with heavyweight, so adding something in between won't pan out too well. And the cruiserweight division in boxing is probably the least popular anyway except for the super light divisions, sub 120lbs.

    He suggested adding one new division and you said no we don't need more, then recommended adding two new ones.

    :oops:
