Default Rumors about the 155 lbs. Division in the UFC

Just read a rumor that the UFC is talking about dropping the lightweight class. If this happens I will NEVER!!!! buy another UFC PPV or post any news about their promotion.

If this is true it would be the dumbest move ever made by the UFC and they have pulled some stupid stuff in the past.
Between the LHW drama and no middleweight or lightweight champ and the poor quality of the last couple of PPV the UFC is right for someone to step up and take over as the #1 MMA promotion in North America. If they are trying to sell the sport to new fans they're really doing a lousy job of it.

I hope this is all just a rumor. It sounds unbelievable but I wouldn't put anything past the "brain trust" of Zuffa entertainment.

if this is true, i would hope nothing but the worst for Zuffa entertainment.

keyword: IF

if this is not true, then cool, I hope Zuffa brings out some of the newer talent and tries to build the UFC to its full potential.

That would fuicking suck. I think the LW division is full of talent and a lot of potential matchups.
If they do drop the weight clas then another promotion should jump on the oppurtunity to have a few tournaments from 16 to 32 fighters until you get the final 8 and have a Grand Prix of sorts for the LW class.
