Discussion Do you enjoy catch weight fights? [WMMA]

Recently there has been a lot of talk about catch weight fights due mostly to the fact that Cyborg can't get to 135 as that's the division with most of the top girls. Are you interested in catch weight fights? I'm not at all. To me it's all about the quest for the championship. I find it interesting to watch the rankings change as the girls try to move up the ladder to earn a championship fight. Catch weight fights have no bearing on this, almost like an exhibition.

For me the simple answer is that it depends on who is fighting. If it is a good match up then fine especially between top/exciting opponents from different divisions.

In the case of the UFC, I think the wider issue is that they should introduce both a womens flyweight and a featherweight division.

Pretty much only Rousey-Cyborg interests me much. There just needs to be more divisions for the women. There should be a 125 and 145 division by now.

Weight cutting an issue in MMA
Outside the Lines looks at the issues Cris "Cyborg" Justino has had with cutting weight for fights and how dehydrating the body is a major concern for the sport.
