I can see a purpose for the 195 and 225.  The others seem senseless to me.  This will not effect the UFC weight classes.  I guess it might reduce weight cutting dangers for fighters in the minor promotions.

Hopeful this doesn't turn into the same problem boxing has. We don't need nearly two dozen weight classes and a more diluted talent pool.

I don't mind this, is the UFC adding these weight classes? If so, there should be no excuses for missing weight. 165 for Khabib or run away with the circus to roll with bears. 
225 div. would be good IMO. :like

Someone already answered that.  UFC is not digging it at all.

There is a huge spread.  It would give a lot of fighters that can't realistically make 205 but can't get big enough to realistically contend with combatants at the top of the scale somewhere to fight.  You are only thinking about UFC and this isn't going to effect UFC.  Atleast  not any time soon.
Just because the division is available doesn't mean that an organization has to implement it.

True dat.  The only weight class I would like to see, added, is the 225.
