  1. Flyweight is terrible for a single simple reason. How many elite athletes in the world are at their best weighing 125lbs. Sure there are a few like MM who thrive at such a weight, but most guys in the division can barely make the weight simply because it is unnatural. 95% of adult males would not be anywhere near 125lbs at their athletic best.

  3. When you have to host a tv show to find someone to fight the champion, I think it's a sign the division pretty much sucks. And then people try to say DJ is the p4p #1. I think the division gets about the right amount of respect.

  5. anyone who says "the division is boring" or "i cant get hype for a fighter smaller than me" are casuals and dont know talent when they see it lol most of the best fighters are welterweight and below, middleweight and up are the weakest divisions in the ufc.

  7. to be honest it's the featherweight division that doesn't get the respect they deserved!!

    isn't it funny how Conor Mcgregor didn't defend his belt once nearly a year and they told aldo to defend that interim belt that he just won yesterday!!

    "Favouritism at it's best"

  9. Look up UFC finish rates by weight divisions:

    http://forum.mmajunkie.com/forum/threads/surprising-finishing-rates-in-the-ufc.65336/

    The Flyweight and Bantamweight divison(The 2 divison of ''little guys'' who get no respect because they apparently don't hit hard) are at 46% and 50%… They finish more or just as much than the FW, LW and WW divisions. They also have way more finishes than the women's division. It's weird when people keep criticizing the ''little guys'' for not finishing fights when they praise the women's BW and the FW division for being more exciting when they both don't even come close to the ''little guys''. The LW and WW divisions are known as exciting and where anyone can finish a fight but they also can't even compare the the ''little guys''. Bunch of casual fairweather fans.

  10. I used to like watching the lighter divisions when they were the WEC. It seems that the bigger cage in the UFC might have something to do with it. It could also be that they fight on the same card as much bigger fighters and that makes them look inferior.

  12. Straight up these guys would not beat DJ in my opinion. You can tell there promotions aren't really that big or anything to just let there flyweight champ walk out and go on TUF. If WSOF/Bellator/ One FC had flyweight champs they would not let them just walk out and go on reality tv for another organization. These guys are backyard champs.

    • That statement is truly ignorant and irrational. I mean, do you not understand that the size of MMA fighters is a completely RELATIVE matter? If not, let me explain.

      As long as they have proportionate human bodies (as in; they don't have the diagnosis dwarfism), and they are similarly sized to each other, there is literally no difference compared to heavier weight classes, except for faster and more "ninja like" MMA. And since very few flyweight fights end by knockout in the first couple of minutes, you usually get a lot more action packed, high level MMA fights for your money, compared to the heavyweight division for instance, where close 30% of fights end with a brutal knockout within 60 seconds. Sure, knockouts are "fun" (I guess), although they could potentially be life ruining for the loser. But if you're a real MMA fan (note the MMA part), you should definitely prefer longer and more action packed fights, where a lot of MMA skills are displayed.

      The RELATIVE aspect is the only one that matters. So the only case in which your statement would make any sense is if the flyweight division was a place where tiny guys fought huge guys (which of course would be boring, given that the huge guys would win pretty much every time, since MMA is constrained by rules). Now, obviously that could never be the case due to the fact that the weight limit itself prevents it (duh). But as I said, if that somehow could be the case, you're statement would be reasonable.

      So the conclusion sadly has to be that people have trouble showing respect to smaller fighters, simply because they are just that; smaller. It's not rational, as I've just explained. But it is a fact, unfortunately. It might be some sort of primitive part in human brains that makes some people feel superior, simply because they are bigger than someone. Even if they're dumber, poorer, less skilled and worse at pretty much everything, they'll still feel superior, as long as they're bigger.

    • and they keep saying theyre champs in other organization so its a big test but I still dont buy it.Put any of those guys against top 6 flyweights in the UFC and im sure they would get worked. Henry and benavidez are the "biggest" threat to him. Benavidez has killed everyone at flyweight except DJ.

  14. dj. the luckiest most boring fighter. dominick beat him. dj. so lame. dont tell me about "Hes p4p" the guy has purposely thrown the division under and doesnt care. he had/has xbox one sponsorship and given the attitude "I dont care"… yeah neither do we fans. fk you dj
