cruiserweight division?

i think that when there is a 60 pound difference between light heavyweight and heavyweight and a 15 pound difference between lightweight an welterweight that a new class needs to be made at around 230. this would greatl benfit big LHW's or small HW's like cro cop. also it would be better for the ufc being able to put on title fights more often and champion vs champion superfights without going to a catchweight.

I think it will be much needed in the next 5 or so years' date=' As more and more athletes choose MMA as their main sport.

 

Not quite yet though.[/quote']

but its not about how many people do mma its about having a new division. people like gsp could fight at WW and MW. but not many people could fight at LHW and HW. thats why cruiserweight would be effective

There are not enough fighters to efficiently fill up the LHW, CW, and HW divisions at this time.

there are plenty of HW's fighting at 230-240 in fights so why shouldnt they be a CW? also rampage for example is a big LHW so he can be a CW. cro cop vs rampage? rampage would probably win but would be awesome to watch.

Every fighter you add to the CW div. is a figher less in the LHW or HW div.

 

There isnt the depth yet to efficiently fill the divisions yet. Doing so now would leave the LHW and CW divisions in a 3 man round robin for title shots.

but fighters can move easly fromdivision to division.

 

and new fighters will be found to put in new talent whether it is tuf, buying and existing talent. lie i said before the ufc would make bucketloads of money on more titlefights and superfights.

 

3-man round robin? the ufc already has stacked HW and LHW divisions. + title fight dont happen once a month, so 3people in title contentin for now isnt too bad

no i justworked out that according to ufc.com 16 out of 28 HW fighters are between 240 an 205 pound(not including kimbo slice who was at 215 (wtf?)) plus big LHWs whch therre are 36 of

 

How many of the 16 HWs between 205 and 240 lbs are anywhere near title contention?

 

How many of the "big LHWs" are title contenders?

 

If half of the 16 HWs and 36 LHWs competed in the CW division, how competative would the HW and LHW divisions be?
