“Well, Josh Thomson just said recently that he thinks the UFC is getting rid of the 125-pound division and they are going to put on a 165-pound division. Which I think is very interesting. If (The UFC) do a 165, then I would like them to switch 170 to 175lbs. I think that is wise. I don’t think it would be wise to have a 165 and a 170. But I do think a 165 and 175 is great.”
White’s argument towards including the load class is that fighters who couldn’t lower it at an elite stage at 170 kilos will simply transfer down in hopes of getting a UFC title. Those that need the division added say that it’ll give opponents too small for welterweight and too massive for light-weight a brand new dwelling.
