Nothing sucks the air out of a crowd like Flyweights

These flyweight fights have to go. No element of danger, whatsoever. No crowd excitement. Every fight goes to a decision. The UFC needs to give these fighters their own, exclusive cards, so the fans who are sick of these guys can avoid them at all costs. These guys are very skilled, but they just aren't entertaining.

That fight was good. Can't stunt the sport's growth because of some drunk idiots in Vegas.

Agreed. The fight was so predictable.

I absolutely agree.....


But prepare to get wastelanded or completely berated with insults about how you're an idiot. And how you're not a real mma fan.


Edit** Oops, too late.

They're exciting, kinda. Lots of action, but no finishes.

Featherweights are representing

To many people's surprise (mine, for one) or chagrin, the flyweight division is putting on exciting, crowd friendly fights. The increased speed isn't proving to mean increased dancing and pitter-patter shots. These guys are engaging and I'm looking forward to when the division fleshes out.
