Hell to the NO. It would become a freak show of fat bastards that do not want t get in shape and gas in the very first minute. Not only might that but, Tim Sylvia make a comeback!!! Bwahaha!
a womens division is more interesting, they keep a fast pace and i can pretend their fighting for my ****
265+ is a joke, then there will start to be too many division and it will be like boxing where nobody really knew who the best in the world is....the current divisions r fine I don't think anymore divisions should be added to taken out
Wouldn't make an difference. There would be nobody at that weight who could justify a UFC contract anyway. Bob Sapp? Hong Man Choi? No... Lesnar can make HW, so why wouldn't he?
Why cap the heavyweight at 265? Let them fight at whatever weight they want. If a guy gets to big he's going to be to slow so most guy will be below 265. But some guys are naturally above 265 so let them fight at their natural weight.
There should be a 230 weight class I think and a 250 or 260 and over no limit. Firstly it makes no sense for there to suddenly be a 45 pound gap when its no more then 20 pounds between the other weight classes and suddenly it goes up 45 makes no sense.
As for it being only fat asses in the 250+ or whatever is just stupid, if that is the case the 230 champion will also be the 250+ champion.
I like your idea, but I'd split the HW division at 245, making the super HW division cap at 265. that way the smaller heavyweights could be as competitive as the other smaller divisions.
I would be more interested in watching Rachelle Leah, Chandella Powell, and Arianny Celeste fighting for the LightWeight division...
Vida Guerra, Meagan Good, Scarlett Johansson, Shayene Cesario for the Welterweight division
Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Viviane Araujo , Jessica Biel For the Middleweight division and many more.
A litte sexy catfight every once in a blue wouldn't hurt me at all LOL...
Hell NO! the HW division is the only one we can still enjoy small guys beating much bigger and muscular guys, It reminds me of the time of no weight classes, It was so cool!
That doesn't happen much anymore. You will see when JDS and Cain fight the bigger boys that like to lean on folks.
I'd like to see SHW so that freaks like Lesnar, who win by their weight (I'm not saying he has NO skills) wouldn't skew the HW rankings.
I voted for women to fight, they are more exciting than Big fat dudes in superheavyweight falling over and gassing out all the time.
Superheavy could be a good choice, their are some good fighters at 265+. A lot of the people in the Heavyweight Division are naturally over 265+ so i guess this division would be good for then since they don't have to cut down any more.
But regardless it is not our decision, we should let Dana deside.
I would not see the difference in amkeing the slpit because we all kno that when a fighter like Brock weighs in, he weighs in around 265 but u kno on fight night the bit is back to his walkin around weight plus extra. If their naturally bigger than 265 and actually athletic then hell that just posses a problem on the smaller guys. No sense in makin a whole other weight class for the natural GIANTS and the morbidly obese.
UFC should have SHW div but problem is there isnt no talent to fill it. Historically its struggled at heavyweight to have more than 3 fully world class fighters so having another division only worsens this. I'm sure if there was an abundance of talent around and above 265 then Dana would defo introduce it, but as it is UFC talent is thin enough at HW.
Focus on a women division
Also, I think a open weight division would be much better than having a super heavy division.
Id say make the heavy weight limit 245 and then make a super heavyweight with a limit of 280-285
Personally it isnt very fair to me to see a 230 lb fighter vs a 280 pound fighter(after weighins). No need to go over 265 BUT
Have LHW 205 then have MHW 215-240 and HW 245-->
Poor Fedor's been doing that his whole carreer
Actually if you look at fedors record he has faced mostly 205ers or most people right around his weight, and he even faced Matt Lindland who is a middleweight, and most of the people he has beatin had bad records to begin with or maybe it was someone like Goodgridge or Choi who are not good at all, so how about you kno more about his record before saying he has fought way bigger guys his whole carreer.
you need to watch more of his fights
Well if you think about it, why are people fasinated with heavyweights? They want to see the biggest guys who are power houses. It's no surprise that the UFC has made Shane Carwin a 6'5 monster with 5XL hands(he's really 6'2 and wears 4XL gloves.) So I don't think it will be long before we see some super heavyweights in UFC. Didn't Roy Nelson used to be a SHW?
i think a 220 or 225 division is a better idea then have no weight limit at heavyweight. i think that alot of HW and LHW would opt for the 220 wieghtclass and leave the HW weight to the true big boys so guys that only wiegh 240 dont have to fight guys at 285
I can't believe we're even debating this - women's division all the way. Who the hell would want to watch a bunch of morbidly fat bastards bounce off each other in the octagon? There'd be too many no contests by way of heart attack - or would that be a TKO? Seriously the last thing the UFC needs is a bunch of Butterbeans waging a weight war in the ring. I can just imagine the sponsors on the fighters' shorts - KFC's double down sandwich, whatever company makes those weird child-leashes obese people have their kids on at state fairs, ****in Samsung, Jolly Ranchers, etc. I mean it could just prove to be a dangerously slippery slope - what's next? Maybe the UFC could get that woman from Jersey who wants to weigh 1000 pounds as a new ring girl - ONION RING girl!
I just don't see any serious potential at this point for such a weight class. I mean why do that when the UFC should be trying to get the Caranos, Cyborgs, etc. Just imagine!
I just don't understand the 265 cap, boxing doesn't have a cap, but few fighters come in over 260. There should be a 225 or 230 cruiserweight division though, I think that would draw a lot of the over sized LHWs and the under sized HWs.
Woman's MMA is a joke. Its a bunch of pretty bitches that can't fight, who all get tooled by that cyborg chick. If women want to fight, make them fight men and give them ten pounds for their tits. So a 155 pound girl would be fighting at 145, etc.
Dana stated, he didnt think there were enough guys over 265 agile enough to make a separate class for them.....oh well
womens division sounds better i'm going 2 be the reff :)
