    A lot of fighters called for a 165 class people like Kevin Lee, Chael and a few other journeymen. They had no clout. You look up NEEDLE MOVER in the dictionary, and the DIAMOND will be front and center.

    Will Dana toss a dog a bone?

    Dana didn’t make one for Conor when he wanted it to fight Frankie. He’s definitely not making one for Dustin.

    They cant make a 165 without rearranging the remainder - because then what do you do with WW, does that become 175 or 180? Then what do you do with MW, etc

    Lol no offence but what difference does Poirier make. There are many other high profile fighters who asked for it and ufc didn't give a shit. Against the idea, 165 champ will only want money fights with 155 or 170 title since 165 will be only a handful of fighters. Doesn't really mean much being a champ at 165 if all the best fighters are at 170 and 155

    Won't happen for Poirier... But can see Dana getting a Red Panty Night with a GSP vs Khabib or Mcgregor Super Fight at 165...

    Guys who already lost their title fights want another division. Shocker.

    165 lb - Super Lightweight, if Conor beats Cowboy, have him fight Porier for the inaugural Super Lightweight Championship.

    Make WW 175lb. They should have done that a long time ago.

    MW stays at 185.

    again all this 165 is fake news. ufc not inventing a weight class.

    if they were it would of been to give conor a 3rd belt.

    the reason nate vs dustin isnt gone happen is cause nate doesnt want to fight him there was a reason he said he wasnt showing up to ufc 230.

    It would be alright but 175 and 185 seem too close together.

    They have a 10 lb delta for smaller weight classes because it's proportionally material, for ex 125 vs 135, 135 vs 145 and 145 vs 155...but then having guys in mid-flight classes only separated by 10 lbs can make a bunch of shallow divisions. Why not split heavyweight into 200, 220, 240 etc?
