    I got a better idea- let's make it simpler.

    Fights picked via RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR. That way, no one knows who they're going to fight until the very last moment! No cutting weight, no changing your training specifically for the opponent, just straight up surprise. Plus, fight promotions will save money by having only one unified belt.

    Fun Theoretical Situation Time!!!!

    UFC 158 - Short Hardcore Name

    *30 seconds before the first scheduled fight*
    Bruce Buffer Jr.: "Ladies and gentlemen! The computer has decided on tonights fights!

    *Computer buzzes, makes generic computer-y noises*

    Buffer Jr.: "First Match of the night! Randy Couture vs. Fedor Emelienanko! Wow! A battle of senile proportions!"

    *sighs from audience, scattered applause*

    Buffer Jr.: "Next Match! Brock Lesnar vs. BJ Penn!

    *Louder Applause *

    BJ Penn: "Yeah, that's fair. Fuckers."

    *Computer Beeps*

    Buffer Jr.: "Oh! This one's for the Championship title! ...Oh SHITTHECOMPUTERDIVIDEDBYZER..."

    *Universe Implodes*

    Thank you, thank you, that was another episode of "Bullshido Theoretical Theatre."

    Join us next week for the episode "Hide and Seek Champion," where we place Phrost, the founder of Bullshido, in the place of Anne Frank, the girl who wrote that godawful diary during World War II that everyone had to read in middle school.

    iphaltuus i think your entire thesis is wrong and supported only by guessing and random scientific sounding words

    I realize that there could be a substantial difference between the male and female genealogy, where males typically produce a much higher level of type I muscle fibers, so I decided to cross reference the world records of a sport that relied heavily on muscle endurance; Marathon running. .

    You should have done some more research, since you don't know the meanings of the words that you use.

    I didn't really read beyond that point because it was clear you don't know anything worth listening to.

    f(p(t+1))=p^2(w11) + pq(w12) = retarded thread by an idiot with a thesaurus and wikipedia bookmarked.

    I found more evidence concerning why there would be a difference in the athletic perfomance between a male and female. It turns out that men apparently contain more muscle mass than women per amount of bone mass in their body.

    That is a very good point. It turns out that there is a direct correlation between lean muscle mass and body mineral content, as bone mass can be directly correlated with muscle mass.

    (source page: http://www.unitrem.com/galileo/lette...ewinsights.pdf )

    Furthermore there is in fact not only a direct correlation between lean muscle mass and bone mineral density, but body fat mass by itself has no direct linkage to bone mineral density. So now, in addition to weight classes, it has been discovered that they can be improved by measuring the bone mineral density and expecting a certain amount of strength from any given fighter while simotaneously making it so that a fighters gain or loss of body fat as attempt to move throughout weight classes only serves as a handicap to themselves while two fighters with similar bone mineral content and body weight contain a similar level of lean muscle mass and are therefore similar in strength, regardless of height.

    (source page: http://www.springerlink.com/content/cmljgx7nn40j1mq4/ )

    Therefore, if using this measuring system to improve the presiceness of current weight divisions, it should prove for a more interesting and evenly matched competition while decreasing any given competitors ability to manipulate the division system to his or her advantage.

    And you're still wrong. The difference between men and women is not wholly genetics. A Y chromosome doesn't code for much, and most of the genes on a second X are turned off.

    You don't know what you're talking about and should just stop, you lack sufficient understanding of the topic you're writing at such length about.
