    This gives them two title fights for the pair. If Cejudo wins he then TJ challenges him for a rematch at 135. If TJ wins by close decision then Cejudo moves up and challenges him for a rematch at 135. Of Cejudo loses by KO/TKO then he moves up to 135 and takes on a top 5 before getting a rematch. Several good paydays for UFC.

    Then they can cut 135 too. Not good to have a male division that is lighter/the same as a female division...

    They should just fight at 130 pounds, with winner taking both belts. They can shut down FLW afterwards.

    Dillashaw will win, get the honours of double champ and go back to bantamweight as normal. Flyweight will be dissolved and peace is restored. I see no problem here

    For the "what's the point?" people:

    If TJ moves down in weight and wins another title, it boosts his P4P standing. He proves that he could've been fighting, and winning, in a lower weight class all along. Instead he fights the weight class up and still dominates. From a sportsman's perspective this is an impressive accomplishment.

    From a marketing standpoint, it makes TJ a two-division champion, and makes it easier to sell him as one of the best fighters in the sport.

    Given that the division get's scrapped, TJ shouldn't even bother to make weight.

    I only realized that between these three, MM was the A-side.

    Wait....you mean Cejudo isn't going to try and enforce some kind of rule that Dillashaw needs a win at the weight class to challenge for the belt? Hmmm...certainly doesn't paint MM in the best of lights.

    While this division is dead / dying, at least this should be an exciting fight.

    So they are cutting 125lb division but having a title fight at the same time.

    Maybe they are cutting the 135 lb division also?

    Why are so many people complaining that it’s at 125? Even if it was at 135 they’re still manlets and you can’t tell the difference.

    Nah, he'll deliberately come in 5 pounds over, give up 20% of his purse, call Cejudo a pussy if he doesn't still fight, use the weight advantage to win.

    He's a snake as well as a professional. Feed him to Conor.
