Agree totally.

Strawweights are basically Asian MMA freakshow fodder along with Super Hulk and all that bullshit.


I have no idea why ZUFFA brass are clamouring for this. At least with Flyweight there was a clear emerging scene, especially stateside which is arguably the most important factor for a division...and not to mention it isn't hard to imagine a future of talented 125lb fighters considering the precedent seen in other sports like boxing. (Pacquiao, Marquez, Salvador Sanchez, Pep, etc)



The only thing I recall about the 110s in boxing is Finito beating up on a bunch of no-hopers and no one caring.


Oh and Ivan Calderon.
