strawweight coming soon to UFC

Just this past year, the UFC added the flyweight division, and on Saturday, Demetrious Johnson defended that title with a unanimous decision win over John Dodson in the main event of UFC on FOX 6 at United Center in Chicago.

After that card, UFC President Dana White told ( that the trip went well, and there's excitement in the company about the potential for the strawweight division.

But White defended that division, even while knowing he'll probably have to fight the same battles when the company brings the 115-pound class along.

"I think you had some people talking smack here and there (about the flyweights)," White said. "But if you're a real fight fan, how do you not like Ian (McCall)? How do you not like Joe (Benavidez)? How do you not like (Johnson and Dodson) that were here tonight? When people say s--- like that to me, it's hard for me to respond without being a real a--hole. It's really hard for me."
Ok so maybe I'm being optimistic. But the idea is out there.
