    Who would you have as the champions?

    (Yes I am aware that actually using the same weight classes would be unanimously unpopular, this is just for fun)

    200+ - Stipe
    200 - Jones (he could make 200 right?)
    175 - Adesanya (based on Chael saying he could make 170)
    168 - Usman (unless the extra 2lbs bothered him)
    160 - Khabib
    154 - Tony (he would probably be 160 though)
    147 - Volkanovski
    140 - Korean Zombie (could he cut another 5lbs?)
    135 - Petr Yan (I think he will beat Cejudo)
    130 - Cejudo (midway point between his 2 divisions)
    126 - ?
    122 - Demetrious Johnson (He was a small 125 in the UFC)

    We'd just end up with guys trying to get four belts, and making an even bigger mess.

    If MMA was as established a sport as Boxing. You'd have more talent worldwide to fill the divisions.
    I must be one of the only people who like boxing's weight divisions.

    Cejudo won his belts and now he doesn't fight.

    I'd like to see a Super Heavyweight class.

    Just giant dudes fighting with no weight cutting.

    There's gotta be at least one 400 pound badass out there.

    I miss the days of only 5 weight classes and no interim champions.
