    If the UFC added a SHW division (265+) are there really any fighters out there that would compete? Would any HWs go up? Are we missing out on some true A level fights?

    I got news for all you Martyn Ford fanboys, that dude would get stretched real quick if he doesn't get the win after the first 30 seconds, he would gas out super easily with all that muscle.

    It would basically be like seeing Batista's MMA debut or Mariouz Pudzianowski.

    opening a shw is not the move.
    removing the weight limit is the move. just need HW.

    the problem is the commission created a SHW division so the UFC can't remove the limit.

    The problem is half the HWs who are already too lazy to actually watch their diet would just get even fatter.

    You really want a bunch of guys like this?

    Not sure but If they split the HW at 235 I think there would plenty. Plus I think we could get 205 stacked up. IMO it would have an impact on Middleweight and up if they would split HW

    Barely any fighters that are in good fight shape lean and weigh above 265lb that said, they should increase the cap to 300lb.
