    With him now going up and fighting for the 135 belt...and lets say he wins it, pretty much kills the 125lbs div...

    They gonna call him a double champ...but that will put a division on hold...
    He will probably have to chose between weightclasses...or they tell him to put down a belt (125)...and scratch the division.
    I hope that i'm completly off...

    Cool fight!

    Good to see they didn´t cut Figuereido after losing one. Maybe FLW has been saved after all.

    The more weightclasses the better. I would even support 115lbs male weightclass if that means less FW/LW/WW generic wrestleboxers pointfighting eachothers in the early prelims.

    Great matchup, should be exciting unless they respect each other too much and refuse to throw bombs.

    Deiveson Figueiredo is a solid fighter with some good stand up, but I haven't been as high on him as others. I personally felt he lost to Jarred Brooks and is still yet to address his suspect takedown defense/ground game. I like Pantoja in this quite comfortably.

    That’s because they traded MM away, and cut a shitload of top guys.

    The most exciting guys in the division imo. Sad that their future is uncertain, both these guys deserve better.

    I’d like to hear my man Goldie call this fight just to announce those names!
    He would be bumbling all over the place like the GOAT
