9. Lightweight: 155lbs

10. Super Featherweight: 150lbs (Adam Borics said he would "love" a 150lbs division... give Daniel Hooker The Hungman another division to try)

11. Featherweight: 145lbs

12. Super Bantamweight: 140lbs (the super fights between featherweights and bantamweights would be incredible. Ain’t NOBODY complaining about the high level skilled boxing matches going on at 147 and below. Bud, spence, Inoue, Donaire, Loma, Teo. Kambosos, chocolitito, Sriskaset Sor Rungvisai, shakur. MMA UNDER 155 WEC NEVER DIE.

13. Bantamweight: 135lbs

14. Super Flyweight: 130lbs (FIG VS YAN) smaller guys require more weight classes boxing gets it. Just imagine a WEC promotion rebirth with weight classes 155-125 with the 3 new ones super fly (goat weight class name if implemented), super ban (kinda like superbon) and super feather (some super Mario power up shit). It would Be high level, highhhh level
