    Very disrespectful of Higo. His camp has continually said how opponents have pulled out of fights, and then he can't make weight. Now, we know why he's been fighting at 135 lbs. It wasn't because he simply couldn't find other Flyweights to fight him. There are a ton of Flyweights in Brazil for Higo to fight. He's not a world beater like some people think. His fight with Iliarde Santos was very telling of Higo's ceiling as a top level fighter.

    Soldado has had similar struggles finding fights, so it's a shame that he finally is 1 fight away from a possible UFC contract, and Higo pulls out. Hopefully, RFA will step up and sign Soldado. He deserves the opportunity to show his skills.
