Let's be frank, Mighty Mouse can't nor he ever will sell. Is it time to cut the whole division?
There is a flyweight division?
There are like <30 fighters on the roster. MM has beaten all contenders, and he is constantly breaking record lows. He is literally costing more money than he is generating.
How does it make economic sense for the UFC to continue a dead division
monopoly over the division. they don't want a flyweight division with all of these known names featured in bellator. especially a guy like MM who is a phenomenal fighter and will have hardcore fans tuning in to watch him.
Have you seen the UFC"s balance sheet? How can you speak with any authority about how profitable a division is?
Why are YOU worried about the bottom line of the UFC. FFS. Get a life.
Yes. It's a waste of time. If they aren't even good enough to beat a 135lb man, then why should we even care?
Even 135lbers get stomped by the rest of the roster.
When people say WMMA sucks (which it does), it's because they're watching an inferior product. 125lbs is the same.
There are bum WWs that would wreck them. Why should we care about guys who lose to thousands of normal sized humans?
What's up with all the butthurt over this. It's a discussion not a threat.
It's not the UFC that I am worried about but lining cards with a meaningless division steals spaces from genuine weight classes.
IMO, WMMA BW generates more interest than FlyW, but yeah it's a complete waste of time and space on good cards. Hopefully, WME-IMG will pull the plug
this post is full of win and lose so just gonna quote it instead of like it
I'd be good with losing the 125lb men's division with or without adding a 125lb women's division.
MMJ's success at defending his belt should be pulling in big numbers, but nobody gives a shit. He's never going to sell. He's got a good personality too.
You are right. Only manlets care about 125 pound men. Every single fw to hw would murder a 125 pound Manlet.
Finally some common sense.
Full respect to MM being the GOAT but it's just going to get worse from here. They can't do another TUF season and there are no worthy rematches.
By common logic, he should be huge with tieing Silva and being a great guy but BW seems to be the threshold
Foolish to think otherwise
Why do you give a shit about the "economic sense"? You will never have anything to do with any business aspect of the sport.
lol imagine if the ufc cut it before his next fight just to keep andersons record unbroken.
Leave it on free cards but not as main events. Cut all the chicks though, it's painful to watch, see more skill at the local toughman.
Dude calm down, don't get mad cause it surpasses your vocabulary. UFC is a business after all and I presume FlyW loses them money.
He's good but he's not Anderson good. His defences are riddled with rematches and against arguably less skilled opponents.
Don't think I can even stomach that. He's last fight was just painfully boring for me and it steals the spotlight away from real fights like Souza vs Whittaker. What's up with recent main cards being filled with straw weights tho?
Separate names with a comma.
