BREAKING: We're hearing the #UFC men's flyweight division is 100% being dissolved, likely done by the end of 2018. THE KICKER: Not all flyweights are being asked to move up to bantamweight. They're just getting cut. Unreal. We'll update you as we receive more info.— FloCombat (@FloCombat) November 7, 2018

Not a fan of just cutting a bunch of fighters though.

Pretty shitty thing to do.

I agree but hey, there's a market for them in Asia I hear.

I don't like WMMA and I don't like 125 or 135 fights all over fight cards

I do get that it is a shady move for the fighters involved but what is the solution when they want to drop that division?  Maybe give them notice and release?

Probably a good thing.   I think they have too many divisions so this is a good step forward.  Woman's fw should be next to go as its even more useless than men's fw.

Yeah, usually it's the noobs that doesn't like smaller fighters.the ones that like flyweights were the types to stay up late and watch shooto.its ok,I guess there's still a hw division where two fatasses can fight for a title.

Women are more entertaining than 125 men imo.
Personally, i'd be in favor of moving all women to invicta except for the top 10. I don't have interest for WMA outside of the top 10.

Clearly Dana’s plan to get Benadvidez out of his way.

Lets see how many people are mad about this after people hating on 125 for several years on this forum. Same with Mike Goldberg. Everyone hated him until he was fired, then they loved him again.

Time to cut the women's division as well. No one will buy a card where the main event is 2 women now that Rousey is gone.

This will make Bantamweight that much better. More resources can go into developing struggling divisions like Light Heavyweight now too.

Atleast 115 women can one punch ko unlike 125lb men

I wonder by scrapping 125 that wasn't popular more of a reason to try and justify a push for and the rumors of a 165 pound weight class.

It makes sense if it was under performing to scrap it, but the UFC has a lot of shows still a year and title fights sell.Getting rid of one champ and class that didn't sell, and create a new class by pulling from IMO its two most stacked weight classes lightweight and welterweight would make a lot of sense on selling tickets and PPV.

MM barely lost a decision and suddenly the division is in chaos, MM is gone to OneFC so who knows what happens now.

ufc added a 125 for women, yet killed off 125 for men

i know 125 sounds crazy light for a man, but these guys walk at 150, which is pretty average for men who arent fat

No way. The 125 men are fast and still carry power. The women's divisions are stacked with meh and steroids at the top who can crush the rest

150 is average for a man that isn't fat? What, for men midgets?

I've enjoyed WMMA far more than the men's 125lb division.
