The Association of Boxing Commissions recently adapted an entire new range of weight classes.
The UFC does not care.
I am not planning on following the new weight classes,” said UFC President Dana White.
That’s good news. Having too many champions really waters down the belts – not to mention the confusion that would ensue. Boxing has a major problem with that which is one of the reasons the heavyweight champion is really the only title most casual fans care for. There are just too many champions in boxing. Most fans of the UFC know who the champions are even if they don’t always know the weight classes.
