Henry Cejudo wrestled in the lowest weight in the Olympics which is 121 and was a projected flyweight. Cutting 6 more lbs for these guys would damn near kill them. Cejudo could barely make 121 after his first Olympics.

These guys can easily fight in the flyweight division by not cutting weight or bulking up a little more and cutting a few pounds. Really no need to add an additional weight class. The strawweights can definitely help add depth to the flyweight division, which is in need of some help.
That's another thing. They aren't super athletic explosive guys like you saw last week with Dodson and Johnson.
Coming from someone who has actually seen Strawweight fights, they are basically just like malnourished Japanese guys and a few very small east Asians.
