    This way women like ronda and cyborg would be forced to fight at their natural weights -no way either of them make 125.

    Fighters like tate, zingano, corriea would quickly drop to 125, and Joanna (who could not make 105) would finally face real competition.

    All the rest of the 115 division would drop to 105 ...where a new champion would rise... paige vanzant!

    Seriously, the entire division is just too shallow..this is the only way the whole thing works...thoughts?

    Stop posting with no knowledge, Zingano is every bit as big as Ronda and leaner. It doesn't matter if she used to fight at 125 and Ronda used to fight at 145, she's a giant tank now.

    Saying 145 is the natural weight for Cyborg and Rousey is silly. Rousey walks around at 150-155, Cyborg walks around at 170+.

    And your divisions would end up with a paper thin 145 because what woman in their right mind would want to be in a division with both Rousey AND Cyborg? You'd just end up with a bunch of 145ers quitting the UFC or trying to drop to 125.

    You'd end up with a congested 125, a paper thin 145 and who are all these fighters that are going to fill out 105?

    Terrible, terrible idea.

    If both Ronda and Cyborg fight in the same division, one of them is not fighting at their natural weight. Have you ever read any Ronda vs Cyborg thread ever? 135 is very hard for Cyborg to make and 145 is a division up from Rousey's optimal weight.
