This could be our last shot at one big Pride esque tournament in the UFC and all some of you can say is "too many weight classes as it is"

When in reality that statement is total bullshit.

Jones should cut additional weight and beat everyone again.

Hey Cre,
Problem is the large 20 lb. gab was created when all the others had a 15 lb. gap which was my recommendations on a HUGE UG thread that got a ton of support. Problem is 200 was bumped up to 205 by Joe Silva whom called me to accommodate Tito. NJ next day adopted the weight classes. Check out my Tito interview for confirmation on some of this.

Very strange to have 10 lb differences (the lower ones), then go up to 15 differences, then a 10 lb. again.

If add, then need to totally revamp. While that 20 lb. gap has indeed turned out to be too big, you don't want so many in turns into Boxing that people can't follow either.

If I fought again, my ideal weight class without crazy cutting like most would prob. be 197.

195, 205, 235, 265  it's going to happen, I don't know when but it will..

 

P.S.  I'd like to throw in Nedkov, Papi abeddi, Tim Boetsch and Roger Gracie into the 195 tournament

Attack Dawg -  200lb title and move light heavy to 215 Phone Post

I'd be alright with that, originally 200 was meant to stay but became Tito weight. Had it been 200 all along just would have been adding a 215 or 220 at later date perhaps.

Boxing Logic:If someone is not got enough to be champion in his own weight class invent another one or just start to make up belts to satisfy to delusional fans who wants their man to be champ.Hope DFW doesn't want 1 cent of that retard money.

CRE - Don't forget Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort either Fraser_Finlay.

195 will prove to be a loaded division, superfights are to be had between guys who maybe aren't able to be the champion at 185 or 205, but are very much in the hunt at 195.

Machida lost to Jones and it's not a compelling rematch, Sonnen has lost to Anderson twice so it's not a compelling rematch right now, Rich Franklin also lost twice to Silva and just got KO'd while looking sickly at 185, give him a chance to be at his best weight.

Mousasi doesn't have the right build to compete with the monster Jones at 205, but at 195 he could be champ.

The possibilities are endless and as far as the fans go this is an exciting idea.

Maybe make a tournament?

Just cut Vitor and let Bellator deal with him.

Looking at the big picture we need to have this happen sooner than later.
Cut Vitor. I actually agree.
He's annoying and everytime he wins it's just bugs me that a guy who cheated can be on TRT. The whole Vitor situation gives me the shits. Send him to Bellator. Phone Post 3.0

UH NO BIG TIME. you dont cut one of the most exciting fighters ever. we have enough blanket wrestlers and point fighting decision fests. Belfort is a WELCOME change from all that. only a whiny jersey shore fan would want to see him cut due to his diva BS. a true fight fan doesnt give a fuck about the drama and likes exciting fighters who finish fights.
