    Did you know the vacant 125 title fight is up for grabs this Saturday? UFC has yet to promote this so far.

    The people who care to comment the most about this fight happening, ironically are the people who hate flyweights.

    Actually, I've been excited about this event. There will be a new UFC Flyweight World Champion soon so there's that.

    1. Demetrious Johnson.

    2. Henry Cejudo.

    3. Someone else.



    History will be made soon.

    More than a year since the flyweight title has been defended. Lets go Joe B get that belt and rule this division

    well it doesn't really seem like a title fight

    DJ and Cejudo are clearly the two best 125ers out there

    also joe b should take it rather easy , has advantage everywhere especially in the cardio department

    I wonder what 'reward' Joe B will get at home if he wins.

    Vegas has this as a pick em. But I agree I like Joe B here but Figgy does have fight ending power.

    no way - dropping some cash on joe b rn

    joe b's been finished once in 33 fights by MM , he is a master of pushing the pace and can really grind this one out, make figgy tired and get a solid stoppage in the latter portion of the fight

    edit: Joe b's at -135 on bovada

    I'm glad Joe is getting a title fight, I hope he defends often if he wins
    I will watch.

    Nice. I didn't know Mighty Mouse was back in the UFC and he's fighting Cejudo for the 3rd time.

    What do you think of Tena so far?

    Luis Fernando Tena is the head coach of Club Guadalajara.

    Don’t know why but I see Joe B getting KO’d. The Pettis loss is hard to forget.

    I am excited. Both guys seem like the type that will win the belt and defend it. Flyweight doesn't have any guys that are going to get numbers. But think it is cool that it is a belt you can throw as a main event of a ESPN+ show or a Co-Main to a bigger one.

    Both dudes are a blast to watch.

    It's a fun fight, but nobody is buying the winner of this fight as the best 125lb fighter on the planet.

    I'd favour a fit Horiguchi over either of them.

    I don't hate him, I think he is a decent guy in terms of strategy and knowledge of the game, I just don't think he has the best personality for motivating the players, biggest problem to me right now seems to be that the new players haven't shown to be worth what was paid for them and the biggest name of them was popped before the tournament started for God knows what substance

    Not much of a division left to rule tbh. Looks like the UFC is giving Joe B a favourable title fight before rolling the 125 pound division up.
