    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.

    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.

    You think that would be difficult, due to them having smaller lungs.

    I just wanted to know what others thought about the 125lbs weight class. I think this weight class blows. There's only a handful of fighters in UFC's roster, and every single 125 lbs fight I have see was boring. And please don't give me this crap about them being more technical and crap. They are not. Joseph Benvidez does not even look when he throws punches. I think his eyes are closed when he throws his wild hay makers.
    My favorite weight classes are 145 and 155. It seems like their skills and talent drops off at the extreme weight classes (i.e. 125lbs and heavyweights)

    That was a good fight, and Dodson vs Johnson was a great fight.

    FLW is good, eat a dick.
