165 all day, the 165 division would be the hottest division in the UFC.

Flyweight, and it's not even close to me.  The talent gap at Flyweight, in my opinion, is finally beginning to close between the guy who was largely considered the best in the division in Mighty Mouse and the rest of the pack.  165 is an artificial division that would be just like all the in between divisions in boxing. Completely unnecessary.  That said, there should be some more wiggle room for guys who struggle to make weight, like catchweight fights.

Flyweight.  There is no need for 165, 155 and 170 are not that far apart.  The only people that want 165 are fighters that are looking for an easier path to a title.  I'd rather see a women's 105 division before a useless 165 pound division.  There are enough men's divisions.

165. Switch to 155 165 175 185 195 205 225. There just isnt enough talent or excitement imo at 125.

Not interested in what Luke Thomas or what any of the other SJW soiboys at MMA fighting think about anything TBH. They can go back to braiding each  others hair, circlejerking over a bottle of proper twelve (or Tapwater as it is has now been rebranded). Go on MMA fighting right now and you'll still see Mcgregor ****ride articles despite the fact he just got obliterated.

Vox media is probably the worst outlet in the industry, and Luke Thomas is garbage. It's actually amazing how much he can get wrong in predictions, which is why he doesn't really do it any more. Even Chael sonnen gets it right more often.

@Massa

It has nothing to do with the French.  The reason we don't use it is because it would be a burden financially to go completely out of our way to flip over everything to the metric system, when the only time we really need to make a point to use it outside of a math class is for scientific measurements and important government projects.  Plus, we Americans use both metric and imperial measurements interchangeably all the time in daily life believe it or not.

It has something to do with not wanting to copy a coward. Whether you like it or not.

For WM division, 145-130-115 will be good for me. Actually women division are so weak

Ive always loved the 10lb jumps of the lower classes. For me the ideal might be, 125-135-145-155-165-175-185-200-225-open.

but hey there always is a lot to consider like is there enough talent out there for that? Is that number of champions marketable? What happens when we get more champions trying to be multiple weight class champions?

Im down for shaking it up a bit with the title pictures, its been kind of a mess for awhile now.  Although assuming tony vs khabib is next, then its pretty much sorted out again.

I only want 165 if they split 170 into 165 & 175 and dissolve the 170 class.

If they make 165 & 175, I have some questions; 
does Tyron become Champ at 175 by Default? 
Who fights for the 165lb Title? 
Can we have a tournament? 
Who goes up? 
Who comes down? 
Why are Nate & Conor fighting for the Title even though both refused to be in my imaginary tournament? 
Where does Kevin Lee fit into all this? 
Will the universe explode if Tony fights Khabib? 

At this point, it'd be worth it.
