    I would
    like to express my feelings on there being an open weight class in the UFC where
    you can weigh whatever you want. Fighters take so much energy to cut weight and
    end up not fighting at their optimum as a result, so why don’t we do away with
    weight classes? Now I know a lot of you are going to say that this would be
    unfair to smaller fighters, but isn’t the whole idea of martial arts to be able
    to defeat your opponent no matter how big they are? What the smaller fighters
    would lack in mass and strength, would make up for it with their speed and
    cardio, do you really think Bigfoot Silva is going to beat Anderson Silva
    because he is bigger? there is no way he is going to stop that level of
    technique. How many of you out there would love to see a UFC open weight class?
    And how many of you think there are UFC fighters in lower weight classes that
    would destroy fighters in higher weight classes if it was an open weight class?
