This should be a good fight but I'm pretty surprised that Moraga got the pick but I'm guessing Dodson/Benavidez turned down the fight. Phone Post

Woah, there are more guys at flyweight other than the 4 that have been facing eachother?

125, 135 make for good free TV fights.

Sal Penis - How come this guy defends his title all the time on free tv? Lol never headlines any ppv's... probably because no one would pay for them. Zuffa continually shoving flyweight division down our throats. Phone Post

Giving it away for free is shoving it down our throats? You speak nonsense. Phone Post

I'll never understand how people can complain about a free card. Phone Post

I'm all for the lesser-known guys (which also happens to be in the smaller weight-classes) being on the free cards. I'm also all for free title fights in general. The live gate for these shows will do well and Fox is subsidizing the events and the payroll to make up for the difference in the ppv revenue, so this is a good move to put more title fights out there.

Three cheers for an active champion fighting the number 1 contender. Other divisions can take a lesson Phone Post

But will it be anything other than another 5 round decision?

They have to build of the casual fan's knowledge of who the 125ers are. It started the same way with every smaller class.

Jose Also came out from behind GSP/Shields at 129 and now has his own ppv's. Now it's the same with MM. He was fighting behind Bones/Belfort at 152 and then a headliner on a fox card, soon will headline his own ppv. People don't buy ppv's of fighters they don't know about, therefore they are exposing MM to the masses until he's capable of headllining a ppv.

I like that the belt isn't held captive for 6-9 months at a time.

Take notice, other uninjured champs.
