They are getting to a point in weight where i am sure i could beat everyone up despite them being more technical etc. I dont want to watch midgets fight. And tbh the flyweight division will be ultra broing because 99% of the fights will be decisions.

If they can get the talent for it, then why not a 115lbs division? That would be off the hook! Hope they can make it happen

See it's people like you that Dana is referring to. I have a hard time not responding like an asshole to people as ignorant as you. You are not a true fan IMO.

EDIT: Next year Liza gets my vote for every category. True MMA fan right there.

I'm not saying I never want to see it, but they need to focus on the things they have right now. 125 is so weak it isn't even funny, but it also stole a bit from 135. The last thing they need is fighters from 125 leaving. It's hard to even call it a division with the amount of relevant fighters in it.

125 is weak inside the UFC, it's not weak IMO in the sport as a whole. Zuffa needs to start inking deals and get that talent into the UFC. That's the major problem. They just need to get the right letters on the gloves so more eyes can see the talent. Cause the talent is there.

Not interested at all. I don't want to take anything away from the small guys but fights in those weight classes just aren't my thing. Sure there are lots of good matches out there but I don't feel that connection to the lower weight classes that I do to the heavier classes. Plus a PPV headlined by a BW or Straw weight main event is a waste to me....free is ok but PPV it won't be enough to open my wallet.

I hate the mentality of I can't watch a smaller man fight "cause I so much bigger". Just implies you have no appreciation for skill, technique, hard work and the sport.

Because there isn't talent for it.


5'2 athletes are quite rare outside of Asia and 3rd world countries.


The only notable straw I can even think of is Rambaa Samdet and IIRC he's fought at fly before and should if he plans on making a serious MMA career.

Just like with all weight classes that have been added, even back to when the UFC brought back the LW division there are always guys fighting out of place, meaning not in their optimal weight classes. There are guys all over the world fighting at fly that could make straw and if the UFC added the division they would then have a reason to make the move. Happens every time. WW dropped to LW, LWs dropped to FW, FWs dropped to BW, BWs dropped to fly, Flys will drop to straw. Put the right letters on the gloves and it's amazing how public perception changes. "Cans" or nobodies all the sudden get super powers and turn into legit fighters in public eyes because of 3 small letters. It's magic.

Would love a strawweight division, but I need the UFC to seriously boost the flyweight division before even considering it. Baby steps Zuffa.

Smaller fighters are awesome though
