Do not like the new weight class proposal.

Basically the lower weight classes are too far apart.  The kilograms are the same, but the percent is way higher.   

60 kg - 70 kg   16.66% difference

70 kg - 80 kg   14.29% difference

80 kg - 90 kg   12.50% difference

90 kg - 100 kg 11.11% difference

They are adding weight classes in non-Olympic years.
