    Because they don’t have that division, maybe?

    Because that “division” is horrible. It has almost literally zero depth, and it isn’t fun to watch people that can barely move fight.

    There barely is enough really good HWs. There would be even fewer good Super HWs.

    They can't remove the 265lbs limit because it would be a problem with the regulations of many sanctioning bodies. And they won't have a super HW division because they already struggle to populate the HW roster with decent fighters.

    Because that division would be the weakest division ever?

    Bob Fckng Sapp would be a contender in 2020.

    Fck!

    SHW expectation: 6’6 explosive jacked NFL players dominating every one.

    Only sumo can make 50% of the SHW fights interesting.
    Everywhere else it drops to 1%.

    Heavyweight division is already very thin what do you need SHW for?

    They gas in one minute flat.
    UFC should eliminate the cap to the HW division, tho, so if the SHW want to face Ngannou y Jarizinho, let them.

    Most of the truly athletic dudes over 260 play sports where they make millions more dollars without getting punched in the face for a living.... with their fat ass

    if they dropped a super-heavyweight division they'd have to resort to foxy boxing rules, two 30 second rounds with a 2 minute break in between. should the fight go a tie, the fans get pick who is the hottest for the win.
