    discounting all the fat fucks waddling around, I'd say it's between Featherweight and Bantamweight. I'm leaning more towards Bantamweight because there are some big ass Featherweight like Zabit.

    The average (non-obsese) guy walking down the street would most likely be a Bantamweight

    Bantamweight - welterweight probably covers 80% of the population if everyone had normal range of BMI

    The average guy walking down the street is overweight or obese though...so like a short, stocky welterweight

    Average guy build in MMA is = stocky wrestler with overhand and guillotine.

    So I'd say FW historically, but BW today.

    It might vary from country to country, but in North America the vast majority of men could cut to WW or LW.

    WW. It's why it's one of the deepest weight classes.
