    UFC's Flyweight division is a failure. You have MM and Benavidez, Cejudo. Thats all. The PPV buyrate is horrible. It should be merged with BW.

    Agreed that it should be merged, way too thin on it's own.

    I think the top 3 are good enough to do damage one weight class up.

    Can we go back to only 2 women's divisions while we're at it? That'd be great

    Flyweight is fine, it just has a very dominant champion. Middleweight was always called weak while Anderson was champion. Also TJ vs MM is going to be one of the most anticipated fights of the year and it's flyweight.

    It’s a fine division with a dominant champion who makes everyone look average by comparison. If Mighty Mouse moves up then Cejudo vs Benavidez II would be an excellent fight for the interim/vacant title.

    If DJ wasn’t champion it would still probably have Dodson, Bagautinov, Horiguchi, etc. as well. It’s a bit like what happened to LHW with Jon Jones.

    Benavidez
    Cejudo
    Dodson
    Horiguchi
    Bagautinov
    Formiga
    Borg
    Pettis
    McCall

    Wrong.

    Flyweight is great. Casual fans are the worst and we should feed them to our favorite animals.

    this thread should be merged with the other 100 made on the same subject.

    Don't watch them maybe.

    I'm getting tired of reading the same threads and the same complaints over and over again. Nobody forces anyone to watch flyweight fights!

    If you can't understand that DJ is the closest to a perfect fighter we've ever seen, which by comparison makes the division look bad, give up!

    TJ vs. DJ has the ability to change what people think about the flyweight division...
