    I know that ''Trius'' got injured and the bout was cancelled...But why is he so far down the card?

    Shouldn't he be on the main card,considering he WAS a title contender just seconds ago?

    Has this ever happened to any other division...Flyweight is just strange.

    Hopefully the upcoming TUF improves this division..At least a little.

    He's facing a newcomer now.

    Reis' name value isn't much without MM and the title fight.

    Of course he's going to the prelims.

    It's flyweight.

    Chris Cariaso, Ali Bagautinov, John Moraga, etc.

    His opponent is BARELY ranked in the top 100 he shouldn't even be on the card.

    There's 33 fighters in the division. Reis might have been fighting for the title, but that doesn't make him an elite fighter. The division is just extremely thin.
