This probably means they really are going to get their own channel. NonPPV shows will be a lot more profitable if they receive all of the revenue from adverts.

I'm all for equal opportunity and stuff, but 125 lbs?

It's like watching two junior high kids fight ffs. I doubt that they could field an entire division of flyweights. I certainly don't plan on buying a flyweight title fight PPV. The difference in strength at those weights has to pretty negligible anyway.

The combination of Zuffa buying out G4 and this bodes very, very well for us fans. Look forward to a lot of free cards full of new guys


Also, willing to bet TUF 15 is flyweight.

So ignorant. How is it a "joke of a division" when it doesn't even exist yet in MMA? Try giving it a chance before writing it off, FYI there are some bad mother****ers that weigh 125 lbs.

Guys like Brain Bowles and Joseph Benivedez on the under card doesn't really sit well with me, especially with guys like Amir Sadollah on the main card of those shows.

You would NEVER see Rashad Evans, Shane Carwin, or other top contenders/former champs or are still very relevant in the prelims.
yeah I thought they were goin to be built but apart from the torreses,aldos, fabers & a select few the WEC was just brought in to be prelim specialists..It sux on one hand but when u look at how cautious they have all fought since making the transition it doesnt sting so much

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Obviously i cant name any MMA guys because the DIVISION DOESNT EXIST YET. Through experience in training in various martial arts though i know there are many smaller guys who are very strong pound for pound and very technical.
Take a look at some of Rambaa Somdet's youtube videos, he's a 125 lbs Muay Thai fighter whose nickname is M-16 and he's sick.
