    It might have been only because they didn't have many options, but still im pretty surprised they gave the main event to figueiredo, he's an exciting fighter but there aren't many name fighters at flw. Do you think the ufc is trying to give a "push" to the flw division and they see in fegueiredo a star in the making?

    I think it was only because of Cody being the original opponent.

    It seemed like they were rebuilding by crowning a new champion after they were basically set to scrap it. But then they just let Jussier Formiga, a top 10 guy, go so who knows.

    Formiga was on a 3 fight skid, 9-7 overall. Although he does have a win against DF and some other good talent, I personally didn't think he would ever be a champ. Didn't really have all the tools compared to others in the division.

    EDIT:

    And to answer your question, it does kind of appear they may be building the division again. DF is a fucking beast everywhere. Fun fighter to watch. Next weekend should be fireworks.

    Letting Formiga go is a mistake.
