I think they should have a division for each pound. Like 180, 181, 182, 183...

Boxing has too many weight divisions. We don't need that in MMA.

It makes the titles seem less important when there are 20 of them.

This I wouldn't think anymore of Aldo if he was the 140, 145, and 150 lb champ. Having the Featherweight strap means something now and moving between the 10lb gaps gives substance to the different wins!

at least 1 or 2 more. 165 and move 170 to 175 and maybe 235.

The only weight class I'd add is a 225lb cruiserweight division. Having a natural 225lber fighting a guy who cuts to make 265 is ridiculous (ie: Randy-Brock).

Leave the other weight classes as is.

Add a cruiser weight and that's it.  This isn't boxing where you have supermiddle weight and super X weight class every freaking 5-8 pounds.  I like being able to count the champs on my fingers, without using a calculator.

I like a little wiggle room in the weight classes.

It creates more interesting stylistic matchups when you've got a broader range of possible opponents.

It doesn't help that there's like 4 champions per weight class. Phone Post

You just dilute the talent by doing that.

Adding a cruiserweight division would pretty much kill the heavyweight division.  Maybe move heavyweight to 235 and then make super heavy from there up?

So you're proposing that ones of the thinnest divisions in MMA is split in two? Who would fight at super heavyweight?

10 lbs increments between weight classes from 125 to 205 is the way to go.

Not enough, imo.

Well it's been done in boxing so it's not like its some crazy whacky idea OP.

15lbs of non-cheeto weight is a lot when you're taking about elite sportsman. Boxers argue over 2lbs when negotiating bouts - try getting a sub 190lb boxer to agree to a 14lb weight difference - wont happen. For a reason. Phone Post 3.0

I said I want a weightclass for each pound youre preachin to the choir soul sista

If the UFC added a 235 lb division, please tell me how 265 would remain a legit UFC division. It would be thinner than flyweight.
