Only 5 last time I checked. It's just not enough people for a division. Definitely not enough to give the belt any real credibility. I think the UFC pushed too far, too fast with 125. They should have concentrated on shoring up 135 and 145. Promoting them. If those divisions don't interest the casual fan how did they expect 125 to fly?

I think it's fair enough having a Flyweight division...but they pushed too soon to have the Title included, should've had a solid roster to ensure there would be enough contenders. Now they're in a StrikeForce kinda position, they have a champ but not enough proven contenders.

Having a division without a belt is not kosher to me. Every fighter wants to be the champion. To say that they are the best in the world. It's hard to do that if there is no belt in your division. Having no belt removes a lot of the drive and the sense of forward motion - the feeling of the fight having a point. Which doesn't matter to all of the fans but it would matter to the fighters.

i mean run a few Flyweight fights and establish the division, may have helped if the UFC had signed more on before the title tournament. They started it all out with 4 Flyweights...not the best idea as there's been only one signing since then that I'm aware of.

It's a promising division, but more legwork should've been done to ensure there'll be enough fights before kicking off the tournament.

But I'm loving the flyweight action so far, made the PPV for me.
