    would he legitimize the flyweights as legit competition to anyone who feels it isn't?

    I think MM is legit and the #1 P4P, but the answer to this question is the same as the answer to the question...

    "If Jorina Baars joined the UFC, would she legitimize the WFW division as legit?"

    He would be MM's easiest title defense ever

    >MM is #1 p4p



    You also thought the same about Honda.


    Your opinion on P4P is about as valuable as MM’s marketability.

    Honda still had a better claim to #1 women's P4P at her peak than Cyborg did or does.

    He's a small dude who just sold out his fight 2 months in advance. There's obviously a market there and people respect his skills.

    MM is definitely number one p4p, although isn't near being The GOAT

    Well, you asked if he would legitimize the division not if he would draw interest. That's like asking if "Gohan" Saki is legitimizing the LHW division as we speak.

    On the wave of MMA taking over the world.
    How would someone who would get absolutely smoked by every single person in the a division, give that division more legitimacy?


    MMA fan logic in 2017....

    No. The people that discredit flyweights aren't doing it on the basis of skill or style, it's the "toughest guy in the trailer park" mentality. The toughest guy in the trailer park is usually the biggest/fattest. People with that mentality will never understand the concept of MMA being a skills competition rather than a drunken bar brawl.

    What I'm saying is when Lomachenko's name is used there's a universal air of respect for his skills but when Johnson's or any UFC flyweights' it's 'they're too small' to many, yet they're the same size.

    DJ would double leg him before Big John can even utter the words "Let's get it on!"
