Has men's bantamweight been accepted by most fans now?

Seems it's only a die hard few that claim bw fights are all boring, they're too small to finish etc. Most of the ire seems to be at fw and women's bw.

Most fans will watch them....most fans aren't willing to pay to watch them headline.

if dillashucks beats the Globo TV representative again, then you'll probably see some people get behind it - just not the UFC's brazilian TV partners.

The lowest weight class at any given time will always catch shit. Before the 135 and 145'ers came in, it was 155 that was "midgetsI don't care to watch".

Hell, in 2003 there was serious debate whether a 170 lb title fight could ever carry a PPV.

Exactly this.

If by accepted you mean I don't watch any of it and it effectively doesn't exist to me...then sure.
